    I have been working at Tinder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at Tinder for over 2 years now and it's been an amazing experience and an incredible journey! It's by far the best company I've ever worked at with great perks, smart people and continual growth opportunities

    - The people (collaborative, fun, motivated and people I enjoy coming to work with everyday)
    - The company genuinely tries to make Tinder a fun place to work and spends a lot of time and money on the employee experience
    - Amazing company holiday parties, events, happy hours and summer parties!
    - Catered meals for lunch and dinner and an insane spread of every snack you could think of
    - Wine/beer on tap
    -Unlimited PTO/ flexible working hours
    - Modern office that is decorated better than my own apartment
    - Still has fun perks/vibes of a startup, but is a more mature established company with resources
    - good compensation and strong upside on stock
    - good benefits/401k
    - opportunities to grow and take on new challenges for those who are hungry and eager for more responsibility

    Cons

    - Tinder doesn't have a set remote wfh policy. It's very up to manager discretion/some teams shy away from remote work, while others can work remote anytime. Would be nice if there was a more flex remote policy in place so everyone could take the same liberties

    I have been working at Tinder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Culture of people is great
    Employees actively work towards a similar goal
    Culture of work hard and play hard
    Catered lunch and dinners every day
    Unlimited amount of snacks and drinks

    Cons

    You'll gain 15 pounds in the first month
    Start up feeling so no formalized employee development in place but just need to ask for it from your manager

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on employee development framework and integrate in recurring process

    I have been working at Tinder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - The people! I love my team.
    - The work - you'll wear multiple hats, you'll be given autonomy and as a result you will grow/learn very quick.

    Cons

    Experiencing natural growing pains that any growth stage startup faces. I don't see this as a con - more something to be reminded of as we mature!

    Advice to Management

    Be more detail oriented & upfront/realistic about what deadlines you are able to meet for your direct reports.

    Pros

    Working at Tinder has been an amazing experience. Everyday I feel like I'm coming to work with a bunch of my closest friends while still learning and improving my skills as a developer. The company has been growing like crazy and it's been amazing to be a part of it. More to come in the future. Easily the best place I've worked.

    Cons

    The parking situation is a bit of a pain. I'd stay after 7 everyday if I didn't have to move my car at that time

    I have been working at Tinder full-time

    Pros

    This is a place where egos are kept in check, and we focus on goals and ideals. Everyone recognizes that they don't know everything, so they're constantly learning new things in their domain and elsewhere (eg. Engineering Managers are learning more about management and helping team mates achieve their goals).

    We're also working on really impactful things that matter! It's pretty exciting and makes me proud

    Cons

    None yet. I've heard some minor hiccups in other teams, but they're more like stories of how things were in the past. I hear things have improved and changed drastically since the early days of Tinder.

    Ok, maybe year-end-bonuses or something would be nice :D

    Advice to Management

    So far you're doing well. I have no complaints!

    I have been working at Tinder full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Awesome people that actually care about and have pride in their work.
    -Work/life balance and scale of a bigger company with the impact of a startup.
    -Fun, collaborative environment.
    -Great perks (basketball court, food, massages, great health benefits, etc...)

    Cons

    -As Tinder as grown from a startup to a mid sized tech company there have been growing pains and turnover in execs. All changes for the better but in the meantime there is inherent frustration of changes priorities and processes.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the recently set values and mission and keep execs for longer periods of time that exemplify those values.

    I have been working at Tinder full-time

    Pros

    Joining Tinder was the best decision I have made this year. This company supports it's employees from on-boarding, to training, to continuing education/conferences. The company is always having events throughout the month such as hackathons, health/exercise, and surprise treats. The team I'm on is collaborative and upbeat and everyone seems to be working towards a common goal

    Cons

    No cons so far, it would be great to have 100% medical coverage.

    Advice to Management

    Keep creating a great place to come to work!

    Creative, energetic culture, with lots of fun events!

    Sometimes a lack of clarity regarding management shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Managers and leadership have too much on their plates. I think we need to hire more people to spread out the workload.

    I have been working at Tinder full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Culture: this is truly an incredible place where everyone is nice, smart, and fun. I learn so much every day here and hang out with many coworkers outside of work because they’re that great
    - Big Impact: company is at a great size right now where you can work on big features that could have a huge impact on the app’s millions of users. Very bottom ups approach here on pitching ideas
    - Benefits: the events organized for the company are amazing. There’s one almost every week and a company summer/holiday parties are insane. Free lunch/dinner and snacks, basketball court, ping pong tables, fitness classes, hella swag, etc

    Cons

    - Orientation could be more comprehensive: company is still getting more organized and structured so there wasn’t much documentation to help me get situated on my team when I started. The company goes fast. Basically had to rely on talking to various people to figure out how to do things at the company but this forced me to put myself out there more.
