    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.

    I have been working at eharmony full-time

    Pros

    Lots of fun & talented people to work with, great culture, company outings, happy hours, masseuse on site, free lunches every Wednesday, flexible hours, free health insurance, 401k match

    Cons

    Salary on the low end of average for my field and experience. Lots of favorites around the office.

    Advice to Management

    Most management is great, but some could be a little friendlier, especially if you report to them.
