Our Benefits

Our Benefits

First, the fun stuff...

  • Biannual cash bonus eligibility We are not talking about a “participation ribbon” for showing up! We pay cash bonuses twice a year to all our employees when we hit our goals for a quarter.
  • In house gym & personal trainers Who has time for a workout? We do, especially when our personal trainer offers classes – before, during and after work hours. We even have two workout rooms in the Charlotte office.
  • Casual work environment At LendingTree, you can dress as swanky as you want….or as comfortably as you want.
  • Awards & recognition Our quarterly GSD (Getting “Stuff” Done, according to HR) award is announced in our Town Hall meetings. We also have spot bonuses, shout-outs, and a picture of the CEO who will mysteriously appear on your desk.
  • Unlimited vacation days Yes, we are all adults here! This doesn’t mean you can take off all the work days in months with an “r”. It means we all know that we need to get our work done and keep our bosses happy, even while we take some time off work.
  • 401(k) matching While we’d love people to work here forever, you really should plan for the days after your retirement party. To help the Company will match 50% of your 401K contributions into our plan up to the first 6%.
  • Daily catered lunch in Charlotte What’s better than the craft table at a movie shoot? OK that may be a bit of an oversell since you probably won’t meet any movie stars at our lunches…but it’s just $3!
  • Innovative work environment This one should be obvious as you learn more about LendingTree. What other company includes the things we’ve listed in their recruiting site?

We want to foster an environment that increases employee freedom and responsibility so we can continue to attract and retain innovative people. We want our paid time off process to reflect this priority.

Newly eligible employees may start taking paid time off after completing 60 days of continuous employment.

Employees are expected to meet their goals and get their work done. Time off is a reward for hard work and good results, and, as such, eligible employees (regular full-time staff) can take reasonable amounts of time off with pay as they need it. Management approval is required based on performance and business necessity.
