    Pros

    I've been at match for a couple years and I can honestly say that this is a great place to work. The people are bright, smart, and hard working. There is a true open door policy and you can walk into the CEO's office to say hi or ask a question. If you are looking for a place to grow your career and are willing to work hard, this is the place to be. People forgot that Match is a global company with offices around the world and it's cool to see opportunity all around the globe!

    Cons

    You can't bring your dog to work--but I wish we could! HR says they are working on it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! You led us through a very successful IPO and have kept us informed all along the way!

    I worked at Match full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was a great place to work when Sam was running the company.

    Cons

    A number of really good people have left because of the toxic culture. If you are not tight with a certain senior leader you become invisible and all of your ideas are belittled in meetings. What is worse, is your ideas are then presented later as this great new idea without giving you credit. It is classic sexism. And it happened to me, people before me, and is still happening. I held out for as long as I could hoping that a female CEO wouldn't put up with it, but apparently she does not care.

    Don't work there. The atmosphere will impact you whether you experience the abuse firsthand or witness it happening to your co-workers. It is a shame that this is still happening.

    Advice to Management

    Examine why so many excellent people have left your company. Take care of your senior leadership problem before you have a major lawsuit on your hands.

    I worked at Match full-time

    Pros

    There's a portfolio of over 45 brands under the match umbrella, so it's fun to work across different sites. There are also great in-office perks. Fun summer party experience. Great work/life balance.

    Cons

    It's more about personality than work at match; If upper management doesn't like you for whatever reason, they'll prevent you from getting raises and promotions. Upper management also tends to hold onto grudges and doesn't give employees proper room to grow or change. Mid-year reviews and end-of-year reviews mean basically nothing, because everything is at the discretion of upper management rather than someone's direct manager. The office is also too quiet. You would think from a cool place like match that it would be upbeat and positive, but it's not. It's so quiet that you can hear a pin drop from across the room. People at match are quick to give negative feedback and criticism and slow to give positive reinforcement. The other problem is that many people who are in manager roles are not people people, even though it's a people centered business. Match has values which they claim are important, but they really don't seem to matter much and don't seem to be taken into account with anything. Accountability? Out the window. Candor? Don't you dare. Grit? Good luck. Passion? Doesn't really matter since management either likes you or not. Collaboration? Sometimes. Rethink? Nope.

    Advice to Management

    Show positive reinforcement more, take the time to get to know employees.
