Event and Social media Coordinator (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – December 2, 2018
Coordinated events in Los Angeles and Orange County Lounge sites and Convention centers. • Managed client relations and guest list of 200+ members. • Achieved equal member sign up turn around by being a gracious host. • Implemented marketing strategies which resulted in 18% growth of customer base. • Responsible for creative design for prominent dating stir events. • Performed initial client assessment and analysis to begin research process. • Email blasts and social media-content creator. I learned to be an independent liaison and to be the best customer service provider and guide in the dating industry. Beautiful culture as there were various locations to visit and host the dating events at. The hardest part was the company keeping consistent with hours and a keeping the events without canceling them. The most enjoyable part of the job was creating relationships with all the venues, managers and staff in all the different cities and counties.
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.
Associate Manager, Internet Marketing (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – August 30, 2012
Company employs some smart people, but the overall culture is still that of a small home based company that grew too big too fast, and does not know how to manage the growth.
There is no professional career growth opportunities for employees, no team building events, or even an HR system dedicated to track maintain and improve employee performance. There aren't even weekly 1x1s.
The company is all about "WHO" you know rather than "WHAT" you know.
Most importantly Match.com is not an ethical company. They laid off employees just 3 months after hiring them, with 2 weeks pay.
This shows poor management planning and no empathy for employees.
no growth opportunity, job instability, poor management
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.
Coffee bar, snacks, fresh fruit, Bagel Friday, pool table, ping pong table, table games, standing desks, free onsite gym
PTO could be better, 401K company match is a little weak
Anonymous (Former Employee) – Dallas, TX – April 18, 2018
I came at a time when things were transitioning, so my review is mixed. Started out great and after 6 months it changed drastically. Gone were the good vibes and administration caring about its employees.
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
Match.com is in my opinion one of the best companies I have ever worked for. The benefits are great and management is really good. The team that I work with is a group of very bright and brilliant folks led by equally capable architects and managers.
I would recommend this company to anyone any day :).
great benefits, very bright team of technologists and managers, latest technologies being used, challenging projects that help you learn and grow
Exciting and fun with a different experience each day.
Match Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Mendota MN – May 19, 2014
Each day at match.com was different, this was mainly because each customer was unique and had different request. There was never any 2 customers who were exactly alike. I learned that, I should never give up my aspirations to find the one for me. Several older customers encouraged me to find my own match. The management team was always willing to help and remained professional and friendly. My co- workers were accommodating and helpful. The hardest part of the job was trying to find a match for a difficult person.The most enjoyable part of the job was the success stories and talking to the various people.
I was giving a free match.com account.
It was hard to find the perfect match for difficult customers.
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.
Challenging, Productive and team oriented work place
Micro Computer Specialist and office manager (Former Employee) – Aliso Viejo, CA – November 22, 2013
Work in a team environment to achieve challenging year end office objective and reachs objective goal. Learns about higher expectation from corporate level of expertise. Worked as a manager and computer specialist for over 10 years to achieve yearly objective and bears major responsiblities from customers and upper management. Maintains the computer, office accessories and networking troubleshooting to reduce down time. Works with office manager and trains employee with new programs and guideline.
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
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.
Learning to work with clients with different medical problems
Working without supervision and one on one with my clients
