I worked at HomeAdvisor full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Culture - Really allow for balance between home/work. Decent pay, benefits were ok.
The HR staff typically was never heard from. Worked for Senior Managers and it was impossible to tell what their main focus for a given year was

Cons

Horrible at giving raises, begging was about the only way to get one. Sleeping with your manager was another, but thats just disgusting. Allowed 1-2 people on a given team have WAY more power than their roles should have been allowed, 1 employee was known to have kept documentation that would 'keep her employed' as long as she wanted to work there.

Advice to Management

Find a way to promote from within way to much of the brain trust left over last 1yr, within technology groups.

    I worked at HomeAdvisor full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good team spirit. Nice benefit packages

    Cons

    Target businesses/contractors that can little afford their services. Must supply a credit card to join. Sales is told to sell by revenue target--leads pour into customers account--credit card automatically charged. Customer has no recourse-sales reps fired for mispractice. They've rebranded several times--only to engage same unethical business practices.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a concious.

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, friendly environment, close to home.

    Cons

    NO, job security was my biggest beef. I also completely agree with innovation and trying new things, but at times it seemed to benefit NOBODY (including the company).
