    Pros

    Open office makes for a fun place to work. People are all friendly and helpful. This is an amazing job and I'm glad I came to work here.

    Cons

    Hard to have any cons at this point. The money could be better, but where isn't that true?

    Pros

    ocean view kitchen. very light work load

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    If you think interns can do the same job as full-time, good luck!

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

    Pros

    I work with a lot of managers and teams throughout the company and I really enjoy everyone! It's a positive environment and great work life balance. Also, there's a lot of growth potential.

    Cons

    Other than below market pay, I really can't thing of any cons. I think the positive environment makes up for that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you have amazing employees you need to fight to get them raises!

    Pros

    Stress free and you meet some good people here.

    Cons

    Senior 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.

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

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Start to acknowledge your staff and their accomplishments more. Do more for the employees to raise morale.

    Former Employee - Junior Web Project Manager in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Internet Brands full-time (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 ManagementAdvice

    Show 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.

    Give you a lot to do, but it's not too tough, and it's good experience.

    More incentive for public transportation.
