    Pros

    Great overall atmosphere. My bosses were friendly, available, and supportive. Everyone worked hard, but the environment was very positive

    Cons

    I didn't see a lot of opportunity for personal advancement. I was there before a big layoff. (Was laid off.) The management is currently completely different from my tenure.

    I worked at eHarmony full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, I loved the people I worked with. Everyone was very laid back and fairly easy to collaborate with.

    Cons

    VERY high school in that some groups are able to run meetings, disrupt projects, etc as though they're the "boss". Very annoying. Big egos for, in comparison to real tech companies, not a lot of talent. Additionally, and this could be a symptom of bad management in my group only, there was no room for advancement. If the manager didn't advance, they wouldn't advocate for you to advance. Though it may have changed, I think the engineering team was not given enough credit, considering they were running very lean with little to no support from senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you have free pizza on Fridays, doesn't make you a tech company.
