    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Plentyoffish Media for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Fun company culture, amazing parties, free food, beautiful office with the best view in the city. The other best thing is that although the work impacts millions of users worldwide, it's not life or death, so there is less pressure there. Not to say that expectations are not high, they are, but they are reasonable.

    Cons

    Old technology, with any change to the website, there is a high likelihood of something breaking (which negatively impacts ad revenue), so the CEO was conservative with change, understandably.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Something I'd love to see in the future would be for each department to share a clear path of what career advancement at POF looks like — it would be motivating for those who crave professional growth.

    Cons

    (I left a while ago so things may no longer apply!) - Technical staff reported to a project manager which was always a bit odd - Office security could be improved - No adjustable standing desks which is not good for people with back pain - Sprint planning / estimation was a little hit and miss - No sprint retrospecitives made it hard to properly learn from mistakes - 15 days vacation (like most places in Canada)...

    Pros

    Amazing office culture!! They have really mastered work/life balance and appear to do everything in their power to create a fun, welcoming and supportive environment. Tons of work perks like weekly fitness classes, weekly happy hours, endless snacks and drinks and yearly weekend retreat with a ton of great teambuilding and bonding activities. Everyone in the office is incredibly friendly and there is a great team of execs....

    Cons

    So many snacks and desserts (realistically this is not a con but if you have zero willpower then it is a little bit)

    Pros

    Best company culture I have ever experienced. Company provides: unlimited snacks, drinks every Friday afternoon, and frequently puts on special lunches and social activities for employees. They are selective in their hires to ensure a strong cultural fit, to go with strong technical skills or professional expertise. The office is located in a central location with a fantastic view of Vancouver.

    Cons

    You will probably get fat.

    Pros

    Collaboration with some brilliant people. Challenging tasks. Flexible work schedule. Casual and fun atmosphere. Free snacks, and the view from the office is hard to beat.

    Cons

    Fast-paced, sometimes too much so. Not enough time to think carefully about the best answer to problems.

    Advice to Management

    Consider implementing some type of profit-sharing incentives tied to individual projects.
