    I worked at FounderDating part-time

    Pros

    good business concept, big and growing community, great Q&A

    Cons

    horrible, rude CEO. Gaining a reputation. Beware. Makes arbitrary demands then shocked when you can't meet them.

    Advice to Management

    have some empathy. realize that garbage in = garbage out. you cant expect to recruit talent when you are always focused on your computer/email.

    I worked at FounderDating full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Enjoyed working with the rest of the employees - Good opportunity to network with others in the tech-startup space

    Cons

    - CEO expected us to work constantly, we typically worked until 8PM+ each night and from home on weekends - Very high turnover rate, although not surprising considering how employees were treated - The company tended to act in the interest of growth over the best interest of it's customers, even if that meant using growth strategies that were deceiving or upsetting to customers - In general, the CEO doesn't seem to...

    I worked at FounderDating full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    If you like to network, this is a DREAM. If you work for FounderDating, you are literally in the business of networking, getting your face out there, being known and shaking hands.

    Cons

    FounderDating has the highest turnover rate I've seen in any company. The CEO doesn't treat anyone with respect and trashes her employees (as well as professional contacts) behind closed doors. The company does some shady things that could get them in a lot of trouble. If you work here, you might not be able to leave because she also gives awful backdoor references to anyone that tries to leave.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees and professional relationships. You should also abide by the law. It's really scary to work in a place that does shady things.

    Great product idea, but doesn't have what it takes to

    -Extraordinarily high employee turnover -No transparency (internally and publicly) regarding company policies, changes, values, events, or marketing tactics -No trust or acknowledgement for employees in terms of career growth, work/life balance, or overall dedication and contributions -No health insurance for full-time employees -Zero benefits offered at all while team is expected to put in 12-15 hour days (including...
