Positive Experience!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I have been working at Internet Brands full-time for more than a year

Pros-Great company culture.
-Ability to see your ideas come to fruition.
-"Try it first" mentality. Meaning, management is open to trying out new ideas and see what happens, rather than shut them down right away.
-Flexible work schedule.
-Laid back environment.
-Very friendly executive team. They are always stopping to ask how you are doing.

Cons-Pay is below market, but the flexibility helps make up for it.

A place to learn, that's it

Web Developer (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Internet Brands full-time for more than a year

Prosocean view kitchen. very light work load

ConsThe work load is low, but at the same time you don't get much to learn and improve yourself. It is a open secret that the company pays you way lower than others. You hear people leaving all the time.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf you think interns can do the same job as full-time, good luck!

A stepping stone to the digital industry

El Segundo, CA

I have been working at Internet Brands full-time for more than a year

ProsStress free and you meet some good people here.

ConsSenior management does not invest in their employees. The turn over ratio was around 50% during the 2007-2009 period, not sure if anything has changed since.

It was an awesome time there with awesome people to work with.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Internet Brands full-time for more than a year

ProsThe casual environment was one of the best ideas, as well as the ease of work with your peers. Everyone handles their job, which makes your job even easier.

ConsThere was a pay increase freeze the entire time I worked there, which i did not like. No one was able to get a raise, no matter how hard they worked. That wasn't very motivating.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart to acknowledge your staff and their accomplishments more. Do more for the employees to raise morale.

Good learning experience, but management not interested in too much change

Junior Web Project Manager (Former Employee)
El Segundo, CA

I worked at Internet Brands full-time for more than a year

Pros- Good work-life balance
- High levels of autonomy, little micromanagement
- Opportunity to learn about and be exposed to many different technical systems
- People and location are nice

Cons- Little opportunity to advance from junior positions
- Under-resourced on tech and CS for number of sites maintained
- Virtually all sites are on very legacy systems
- Very hard to implement any real changes to legacy sites; business is more interested in acquiring more niche websites than improving/expanding ones it already owns.

Advice to Senior ManagementShow some of your sites some TLC and get them up to standards- it might prove more profitable than continuing to acquire and spreading your resources so thin.
