    Pros

    Minimal supervision, you had time to work on improving the product.

    Lower than standard pay. Not many perks. Office politics are an issue at times.

    Refresh or replace upper management, they don't listen to junior employees.

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Friendly coworkers. Free breakfast and lunch. Good benefit plans.
    It was good when Andrew was here.

    Interesting content and startup that is revamping its high tech competitiveness. Older and more established regular customers, steady cash flow, insanely generous 401k 100 vested matching, complimentary morning breakfast!! Kaiser w low deductible.

    Hirer and pay better educated and trained professionals and not average unmotivated paycheck collectors. Listen to employees feedback they know the solutions

    Pros

    I like working at FriendFinder Networks because (1) the diversity of people and interest my coworkers have; (2) it’s free of the large company politics so prevalent in large enterprises with 20,000 plus employees, etc.; (3) I feel appreciated; (4) I enjoy the challenges of working with technology and how it relates to social media; (4) the flexible work schedule; (5) the benefits:
    20 days PTO a year
    12 company paid holidays off
    5% 401K match with no vesting period

    Cons

    Not being able to work from home. Aside from not being able to work from home, I am very happy here.

    None

    Pros

    Excellent trench staff who could produce several magazines even under the most intentionally hostile conditions fostered by upper management.

    Cons

    Management disregards contractual obligations, dishonest and illegal practices, shifting blame, poor decision making skills.
    No raises, no advancement

    Advice to Management

    None.
    This place is doomed.

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

    Pros

    Made some friends while there, not much else

    Their PTO plan was definitely advantageous if you were there for many years

    Cons

    Executive team is clueless, HR played favorites and did not like when people asked for things (like looks on the doors for grave shift)

    I was ultimately let go because I was complaining about colleagues sleeping together, then was told I was fired due to "misuse of company resources." Like they have anything worth taking.

    Advice to Management

    Quit running the company into the ground
    Quit hiring yes people and listen to real complaints instead of labeling them troublemakers.
