    I have been working at eHarmony full-time

    Pros

    - Some of the smartest, warmest colleagues I’ve collaborated with.
    - Meaningful, fun product – with a unique opportunity to be surrounded by relationship science.
    - Perks – lunches and increasingly healthy snacks, subsidized Equinox gym membership, etc.
    - Poor leadership has been cut.

    Cons

    - Product admittedly needs innovation, but that’s underway.
    - Can be high stress. There’s a lot to do. That said, you won’t be bored, success is usually recognized, and work/life balance is respected.
    - Our top PPO plan (Blue Shield) could be better for coverage and cost .. Aetna had been great.

    Advice to Management

    The last few months have been a breath of fresh air.

    Pros

    80% of time there is free food around.
    Lots of events for employees
    Weekly all-hands standup meeting with most important updates.
    Agile development practices
    Frequent talks and meetups plus reading groups.
    Very family friendly - good work/life balance.
    Subsidized chair massage and gym membership.
    Quick to adopt new technologies.

    Cons

    There used to be a bit of reluctance to try new things out but this seems to have changed with new CEO (Jeremy Verba - ex Zynga).

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to innovate more. Make the site at least as simple and intuitive as the mobile apps.

    I have been working at eHarmony full-time

    Pros

    This is a great company with one of the best cultures and work/life balance I've seen. Collaboration and mutual respect is very high and the level of talent in the organization is amazing. The product/service is something that is very unique in it's industry and that is made possible by the high level of sophisticated science and enabling technology involved.

    Cons

    Word on the street isn't as good as it should be, a symptom of misguided opinions and misinformation that could be better addressed through Public Relations.

    Advice to Management

    Tout the goodness that is eHarmony! Dispel the rumours and misinformation. Let people know who and what we are so that more people can enjoy the great benefit of the product/service and or the great rewards that come from working at such a great company!

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

    Pros

    * It's nice to work for a company who's vision comes before business (don't get me wrong, they care about the business portion as well).
    * The Founder/CEO is very focused on the vision (long term) and overall benefit to society, and the COO is very focused on the numbers. It's a good balance. Both are very focused and know what they want. Both are smart in very different ways.
    * The current management is much more interested in employees' professional growth than previous management teams.
    * Not a lot of ego or management face-offs, as in years passed. A lot more cross-functional efforts and support.

    Cons

    * Morale is pretty good across most departments, but some departments are still recovering from the previous several years -- there had been a lot of change and turn-over, and we moved from Pasadena to Santa Monica. Because of that we lost a lot of people, but we're staffing up again.
    * Although the company is doing well right now and there are several opportunities for expansion, management still isn't certain of the roadmap for these.

    Pros

    eHarmony really takes care of its employees. There is a very positive vibe in the office- everyone is into the company's mission and it shows.

    Cons

    There really isn't a downside to working at eHarmony. It is truly a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    I think our management team does a great job.
