    Pros

    - Most of the people I worked directly with were smart and friendly.
    - Free snacks.
    - They try to use the latest tools

     However, I would not recommend it even to my worst enemies.

    Cons

    The higher management treated the rest of employees as herd of cattle. There is no transparency at all, so the work environment is bit creepy where you never feel safe and settled in.

    The hiring managers painted the picture that the company is doing great and wanted to expand because they have a lot features and ideas to build. However, after joining and leaving my other full time job, the higher management decided reduce expenses by cutting on resources. So I was laid off along with about 30 others.

    Even the lay off process was unprofessional and disrespectful, and shows that they only care about much they can keep in there pocket. Everyone was called into one meeting and given a 5 minute speech informing us that it would be our last day of employment.

    Using cutting technologies was great. However, there was disconnect on the actual requirements and some of the developers worked as solo cowboy coders, so it was hard to make code reusability.

    Advice to Management

    It's just cynical to hire new recruits just to lay them off after a couple of months. So maybe you should consider that when hiring while company stability is questionable.

    Very basic apps no longer works for making revenue, so you should work on the quality of your apps and make people want to use them instead of consider them as spam.

    Management should be transparent and respectful of employees.

    Pros

    Lovely teammates, great opportunities for growth. Working on amazing problems at the cutting edge of tech in an awesome setting.

    Management structure is a bit opaque, I'm not sure how the funding situation works or what the future will hold.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing but perhaps more transparency.

    Pros

    Summer Fridays where most people work (or don't work) from hom.
    Free breakfast.
    Good pay, but you may need to complain first.

    Cons

    Business is going downhill.
    Recent layoffs of 15+ year veterans.
    Bad communication with management.
    Very Very Political to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to turn this thing around, please listen to your employees. Don't just be reactive and try to save a dying business. Embrace your employees and don't tell them "if you don't like it here you can leave"...wrong answer!

    Pros

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

    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.

    Pros

    Good experience in the Content Media industry. Co-workers were great and work hours weren't too bad.

    Cons

    Lack of communication from management. Joined IAC via an acquisition and after a year, I figured out that my role was going to be cut. I approached management about this and they scrambled to put together a retention package for me. i wonder if they would've done that if I never brought it up....
