    Pros

    -Very hands on. Get to learn a lot right from the start. Training has been great, everyone is super helpful and genuinely nice.
    -Fun environment- ping pong/fruit day/popcorn. Lot more fun things than I expected.
    -Laid back schedule and boss.

    Cons

    It's been great so far, so not much to complain about.

    Pros

    Casual clothes and that's about it. Oh and a nice view of LAX.

    Cons

    Everything. Unrealistic hopes for commission and horrible managers that make you meet with them and waste your time way too much.

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

    Pros

    Company picnic during work hours, so you get paid for that. I guess that's cool. If you are an intern, you have more room to grow because you start at the bottom. High turn over = a chance for the little guy.

    Cons

    Low pay, no room for advancement, CEO that cares more about saving money than recognizing/keeping employees around and brags about getting another zero added to the end of his pay check.. yea, that happened. No one stays for more than a year because they realize there is no room to grow. Anyone there for more than a year is drinking the koolaid.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people. Recognize accomplishments more immediately and tell the truth instead of lying to get what you want out of your employees.

    Pros

    Co-workers are very friendly from across the different verticals. Environment is laid back and casual, but definitely plenty of work to do.

    Cons

    Below-industry salaries for what you do. Also, a lot of the "pointing-the-finger" attitude from some employees when things need to get done.

    Pros

    Only pro is casual environment and schedule.

    Cons

    Everything, pay is horrible, in the interview they sell you the job, make it seem like its very easy to make sales however you sell boring sites that never come up in searches. Managers have horrible management skills. No one is happy working here, people even have to get 2nd jobs to survive. you always see people leaving, and every tuesday is new hire orientations so you see a group of new hires taking a tour, they sure do not know what they are getting themselves into. You will meet so weird people working here....trust me run do not waste your time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay employees more, maybe they will actually try to work and make you more money

    Pros

    You'll meet an interesting mix of people and have a variety of opportunities. People are for the most part friendly. They have great company holiday parties.

    Cons

    Some projects may feel rather conventional, not overly cutting-edge. Pay rate seems to be on the lower side.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foster better technical communication among employees. Discover a way for employees to more significantly and directly benefit from the fruits of their labor, so they are more inspired.

    Pros

    Location and late starting hours

    Cons

    horrible managers and corporate hungry executives. The pay is terrible and there is no incentive to work. Every current employee is always searching for a way out. So save yourself some time and opportunity cost, and work for a better company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    How on earth do you all overlook your employee turnover and refuse to do anything about it?
    Your salaries and daily hand delivered lunches are a despicable waste of company money.

    I worked at Internet Brands full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn about online advertising. It all depends on which team you are on. Some managers will help you grow while others will just want to make sure they do not get in trouble if you do something wrong. But definitely a lot interesting things to learn if you are on the right team and bring a good attitude.

    Cons

    This is the best part. Everything is a con except for opportunity to learn. The pay is still around the 1920's rate. Though, engineers and programmers are closer to market rates. 401k matching - around .00001%. Annual bonus - you get to keep your job next year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on teaching. They will learn.
