It's really nice to work for a company that appreciates the work that its employees put in every day. Your efforts do not go unnoticed. While everyone works hard -- match provides plenty of opportunities to unwind and have fun. It's a large company but not so large that you disappear into a crowd.

PTO could be better, 401K company match is a little weak
Associate Manager, Online Marketing & Acquisition (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – November 25, 2017
The team I was on at Match was extremely fast paced and performance driven. The culture overall is upbeat and the perks are great. My team members are great to work with, but current manager's style of people-management is not in sync with the corporate culture.
Corporate Care Specialist II (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – September 8, 2017
Neat work environment that was very relaxed with it's employee's. In the corporate tier role we had to deal with customers which could be stressful at times. Also observed a lot of mandatory overtime to handle high volume coming in,
Working with Alzheimer patients and patients that are bipolar
Home Caregiver (Former Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – August 8, 2017
Working with a person with Alzheimer is hard work, but I learned that if you are patient with them you can control them and get them do cooperate with you. I also learned how to deal with people that are bipolar. The hardest part of my job would be the days when my patient with Alzheimers would get really confused.

Customer Care Rep (Former Employee) – Jacksonville, NC – April 17, 2017
A typical call center setup. They were more worried about the metrics than the customer that called in. co-workers were friendly but the building was crowded. A few other companies also used the call center for their customer support.
To be quite honest, Match was probably the best job I ever had. Great benefits, great culture, great pay, great atmosphere and great location. The ONLY thing I would say as a negative is the ethics and ultimately layoff due to a position elimination.
The job was great there expect the design department was not good just because there was too much business and management changed inside this company. Not a stable company to realize on. They only care about earning but less focus on their user experience.
Fun place to work but there is not much career progression if you don't know the "right" people within the company. The leadership team is like a clique and if you are not part of that group or don't have in roads to it, then your career will not progress much here. A good amount of politics within the company.
It is generally a nice environment to work in though and friendly, smart people to work with.
Fun activities at different times of the year, freebies, free food, etc
Too much politics, leadership is a like clique, not very transparent
I had gotten this job just out of college in August 2014, and I was very excited. I got to work on a small team of 5 (myself included), but there were only three developers (the other two being QA engineers).
In my opinion, a three-person group is a great balance of responsibility and available help from others, but then I like having a lot of work on my plate. My boss and his boss were both great people, and the culture is very laid-back, plenty of free snacks (including an M&M vendor) and drinks, with fresh fruit available every morning and bagels every Friday. Benefits were good, with all the choices you could want, and the 401k matching at 5% was also quite nice.
The problem was that my career there was cut short. At the end of January, I was laid off due to a new company direction towards mobile and front-end development; I was the first-in on a back-end team, so naturally I was the first-out. I noticed one of my QA team members was also let go. This begged the question of why upper management was stupid enough to let my boss hire me when the company needed a radical direction shift only six months later; not that I didn't enjoy the six months, I suppose, but it was extremely disappointing. Not to mention I referred a friend and got him hired -- fortunately, he's still working there because he's on a subsidiary website's team, whereas the brunt of the impact was on the domestic Match.com developers -- and he's talking about how slow QA is now that they've laid off so many QA engineers... surprise, surprise. I thought that my job would be secure because Match.commore... is known as the biggest dating service worldwide and is only growing, but apparently I was wrong.
In summary, great atmosphere and company to work for with great people, but far from exempt from your typical corporate garbage. Take the job if it's offered to you but don't be surprised if something happens to your position.less
Great culture, smart and amiable co-workers, great office perks, always room for new technologies in their framework
Executives and upper management make questionable decisions on a fairly regular basis
