    I have been working at eharmony full-time

    Pros

    The people are smart, nice, and easy to work with! (most of them)
    Upper management has greatly improved and is leading the company in the right direction.
    Clean office space, free snacks, free drinks, catered food, benefits
    Occasional company outings

    Cons

    Some people here have been here for so long that they resist change (and bring along a poor attitude), which can impact our pace and culture.

    Work-life balance at times

    Advice to Management

    Hire more talented people and get rid of the people who are not contributing and have a bad attitude at work.

    I worked at eharmony full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free snacks, some good people.

    Cons

    Cliquish management and senior engineering braintrust, loudest/most senior voice wins. Projects spun up and thrown away willy-nilly as management grasps at new ideas to keep product alive. If you are an engineer be prepared to be on call 24/7, forget about work-life balance, all due to creaking infrastructure that breaks daily. Good luck getting sleep because you will be expected to answer emails at 3 am. Ancient technology struggling to get along with the new world.

    I worked at eharmony full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Talented individual contributors
    - Weekly lunch
    - free snacks and soft drinks
    I worked for 2 years before I decided to move on . Over all I liked my colleagues and other team members .

    Cons

    Bad management and recent clean up of higher management only made it worse . They need a whole new management to clean up the whole mess . Building new UI won't get any new customers . There's a need for changing the business needs to address 2016 dating problems . None of the top leaders seems to understand that. Technology is ancient and with no vision and leadership ,Eharmony is ready for the sinking very soon

    Advice to Management

    Fire all managers or directors in the technology group and hire some best in the business .Most of these managers has been staying for ever ,with zero or little contributions to make Eharmony better . Introduce a 360 degree feedback and make manager earn their rating performance by working for the team like in many other product company . That will clean up some of them

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

    Pros

    - Free snacks
    - nice co-workers

    Cons

    - Recently hired lots of manager or lead
    - There is no more transparency , every thing is decided already for you
    - They are rushing to hire people without the team consent . On the other hand they have a product(elevated careers) which is solely based on the company culture matching
    - Performance is based on how close you are to your manager and not based on the performance

    Advice to Management

    - Listen to your employees
    - Define a clear process on performance and promotion
    - Listen to the whole team before hiring some one new

    Pros

    Some nice benefits including free lunch once a week; free bagels once a month; and free snacks every day.

    Cons

    Very cliquish; extremely legalistic and upper management acts cult-like.
    Huge amount of self-congratulaions - as if whole identiy is on doing well.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourselves.
    Great amount of power-tripping going on.

    Pros

    Great company culture, very relaxed office, free snacks and drinks in every corner, bikes to ride around Santa Monica, decent benefits, quarterly outings and team building, good perks, free lunch Wednesdays, free dodger tickets, thirsty Thursdays, awesome management, hard work is recognized, gym downstairs is subsidized.

    Cons

    Office space is not set up for easy collaboration with other teams. However, with the new office location coming up next year, hopefully, we can plan for a more open space type of set up.
