I have been working at Internet Brands full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

exposure to wide array of technologies; well-diversified business plan/model (stability!); prescient leadership; large audience -- something like a billion pageviews per month across all sites/verticals; culture emphasizes smarts (book and street), creativity, efficiency; challenging in most capacities for junior and senior techs

Cons

unorthodox methods sometimes yield unexpected outcomes; people grow so quickly, it's seductive to drop out or "graduate early" for a huge salary bumps, only to realize the missed opportunities because so few other organizations support the open, creative atmosphere or provide as much a fun and rewarding set of problems to solve and then they want to come back once they realize it. We've taken a select number of people back, but the growth trajectory is seldom as steep as before the initial departure.

Advice to Management

more rigorous employee assessment program could help prevent the common career mistake described above, otherwise doing great!

    I worked at Internet Brands full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment. Ideal for a recently graduated, junior positions. Definately good for temporary jobs instead of making a career in this company.

    Cons

    Upper management is *CHEAP*. General employee well-being is not a very high priority here nor experience, expertise and talent. Priority is always getting cheap man power. They seem to apply the same rule to employees on other countries where Internet Brands usually outsources to. With the enough resources for making this company a top notch techie shop, they decide to go cheap and not take good care of their invaluable employees. This results in a lot of employee rotations.

    Advice to Management

    Make more investment on people, they are your most valuable asset. With the usual attitude, the message sent to employees is that you don't care about them.
