    Pros

    Great company, values, and technology stack. Great perks, and mostly surrounded by very smart people who challenge my way of thinking.

    Cons

    Upper management needs to be some more in touch with employees. Can be difficult to get your voice heard if you are not persistent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep in sync with employees. Make sure to always provide a growth path. Neil is great and acts like everyone's favorite grandfather.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    - Surrounded by smart people
    - I know others have reviewed the benefits as poor, but they seem good to me
    - Friendly leadership
    - Frequent all-company events
    - The company's mission is personally fulfilling

    Cons

    - Opportunities for advancement are just okay
    - The company has been slow to respond to a changing market and economic challenges

    Advice to Management

    Give those in positions of accountability (but not the highest levels of decision-making) more freedom to act on their ideas and instincts.

    Pros

    Lots of really smart people (in some departments)
    Tons of free food!

    Cons

    Little room for career advancement
    Poor benefits

    Advice to Management

    Refocus your priorities on what built eHarmony to be what it once was. Side projects/initiatives like Jazzed are a waste of everybody's time.

    Re-align your business practices with the message you communicate - practice what you preach. For a company that supposedly cares about its customers, the business practices often suggest otherwise.

    You give off a really poor impression when you lay off a whole bunch of people and then go on a big hiring spree weeks later.
