I have been working at Internet Brands full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Flexible work environment
- Wide range of technologies and talents to learn from
- VC backed, so at least there is some trust in the company's financial stability

Cons

- Employee retention has been very poor. The turn over ratio is too high to allow employees to feel stability
- No standardized process for, well anything. Too much freedom is usually not good.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Implement standards. Whether its building a product or employee review, there just seems to be a fundamental lack of process.

    Pros

    They'll hire anyone with a pulse.
    If you're trying to get into a different field, it's a chance to get some experience on your resume and build industry contacts, so you can hit them up for a better job.

    Cons

    Pathetic wages
    Expect you to work late for those wages.
    You'll work with some of the most mediocre talent in the industry.
    You will not get promoted, but they will lead you on about getting promoted for months until you wise up and leave.
    The seating arrangement is like a call center. You won't even get a cube. People sit at very long desks with no privacy whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're losing tons of money by having employees who don't know what they're doing, or even if they do know don't really care. Be a better place to work.

    Pros

    You have the opportunity to move around the company and work in a variety of roles. Definitely a relaxed environment for a larger company.

    Cons

    Pay is low. Don't expect to get much of a raise, even if you perform well. Management does a poor job of communicating vision and direction of company to employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people a little more. It's hard to build a vibrant culture and keep top employees when you don't pay employees what they're worth.
