    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.

    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.

    I have been working at eharmony full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It has been enormously rewarding to work with some of the smartest and most motivated people I've ever met to build and support a product which is innovative, uses the latest data technologies at scale, and provides a proven benefit to our users.

    Cons

    There have been occasional managerial missteps, especially in the selection of past executives.

    Advice to Management

    Demand the same level of excellence from your executives that you demand from individual contributors. Be faster to recognize errors in hiring and correct them at ALL levels. Be better at recognizing and rewarding key players when they DO excel.
