    Pros

    Great amenities, social events, generally work-life balance (though that depends on the manager). Modern venue, great location.

    Cons

    Mid management is hit or miss. Opportunities for advancement are often limited, favored by external hires - again, depends on management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on mid level manager development.

    I worked at IAC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Really great place to work. In the IAC building in New York City, the building that looks like an iceberg. Nutritious free snacks and drinks. Great workplace environment. Filled with funny people

    Cons

    Some of the people working there were super lame. Others were cool, but the ones that were lame really sucked. Surprisingly quiet for how much energy you'd expect a humor website's headquarters to have.

    Advice to Management

    Make the experience of working there more interactive. Conversation and energy flow would probably benefit output of better and more creative ideas.

    Pros

    intense environment, always looking for move forward, a lot of attention paid to employee satisfaction, lots of employee perks year round

    stock program should be for all employees, location is a challenge on cold winter days, never know if your division will soon be sold or gone so job security may be an issue

    Pros

    -Amazing people to work with. Very friendly and helpful co-workers who want you to succeed.
    -Managers are very hands-free and give you the opportunity to shape your responsibilities and do your work the best way you see fit
    -Really great perks and benefits (parking/transit comps, gym subsidy, summer fridays, 401k matching, lunches, happy hours, movie days, volunteering, tri-level snack complex with frozen yogurt machine and toppings bar)
    -Great work-life balance
    -If you are committed and do the job you are hired to do then management will recognize that and promote you to keep you motivated
    -Great place to learn new skills as it is a very "ask and teach yourself" environment rather than a "keep to your own work" environment that is the status quo in most places
    -Management is very open to employee feedback

    Cons

    -Accountability is an issue for some employees and managers don't always address it in time
    -Competitive landscape changes almost on a weekly basis, hindering long-term roadmap creation
    -Overall the mood and culture here is upbeat, young and fun however some legacy employees who have been around for too long have a tendency to create negativity instead of doing their job

    Advice to Management

    -Management needs to focus more on product ideation than just on sales
    -Need to define a long-term vision for the company
    -Improve employee retention by providing clear growth paths

    I have been working at IAC full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of people here that really care about their craft. It's still have the feel of a very young company, yet are we creating some very pro work.

    Cons

    The company is in a bit of a transition. Focus seems to be moving away from high quality original internet comedy.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let employees just cruise here. Push them to do great things. If you get the sense that they are slacking in any way, find out why and motivate them to do better.
