    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management doesn't listen to the people who are actually doing the work so there's no advice I can pass along.

    Former Employee - Production Control Managerial in El Segundo, CA

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

    Pros

    Relaxed fit environment. Can wear everyday clothes to work. Flexible Schedule.

    Cons

    Poor leadership. People at the top make the most money and there is ZERO room for growth. Company went through a re-organization and cut jobs and lowered salaries. Took away bonus structures. I came in for one position and during reorganization I was moved to another position and my pay was lowered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not worth my time.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in El Segundo, CA
    Current Employee - Project Manager in El Segundo, CA

    I have been working at Internet Brands full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is very relaxed yet the work can be, if you want it to be, very challenging. There is lots of work and growth opportunities for those looking to seek it out. Good health benefits.

    Cons

    Below average industry pay and lack of a career path can make the future uncertain. Lack of bonuses or incentives to work harder. Lack of 401k matching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide even small incentives to your employees (a small $100-$500 bonus or even a free lunch every once in a while goes a long way).

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in El Segundo, CA

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

    Pros

    A great place to learn the ropes of the internet for nearly any facet of the web (product management, project management, design, development, etc.).

    Cons

    The majority of employees are learning and therefore the majority of the company really doesn't know what's going on. Due diligence is just not there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on more structured processes company-wide to ensure that everyone learns the right way rather than trial and error.

    Pros

    Lots of growth and change providing room for advancement. Hands on experience in the digital space. Quality management and great environment.

    Cons

    Pay is based on merit. Lots of people don't like this since they actually have to earn something and prove their value. If you work hard and smart you will not encounter this issue as so many on these boards do.
