-Competent management
-The company is focused on acquiring websites with great content
-Flexible hours = good work/life balance
-Employees are given a lot of autonomy

Cons

-The pay is lower than comparable positions at other companies
-If you're a person who needs to be told exactly what to do, this is probably not the company for you because you're given a lot of autonomy. If you don't like to be micromanaged, and enjoy having some freedom at work, you'll be happy here.

Advice to Management

Pay needs to be at least industry standards and there should be more emphasis put on growth and advancement opportunities if you want to have better employee retention

    Pros

    Nice view from the office.

    Casual dress code.

    Free tea and coffee.

    Cons

    You will get paid a fraction of what you can earn in other companies. If you are interviewing at two companies and get an offer from both, I can guarantee that Internet Brands offer will be the lower of the two. Considerably lower!

    IB has a revolving door for employees. People start, stay for a few months and leave when they see the company’s true colors. Management make no effort to retain employees. Their strategy is to use their large recruiting department to quickly replace you once you leave.

    IB will do everything it can to scam you out of your health benefits. I would estimate that 50% of the company isn’t offered any kind health insurance. They even prevent some employees from parking in their parking lot (depending on the number of hours they work).

    If you are lucky enough to be selected for a promotion congratulations! You now have extra job responsibilities but no extra pay. Management constantly low ball employees, particularly internal transfers. If you bargain hard enough you might be able to get them to agree to a 90 day review, after which time you will have to chase down management to conduct the review. They would much rather ignore it and hope you forget.

    CEO boasts about how much money he has while underpaying his employees. He commissioned an "art" piece for the lobby that cost $10,000 while many of his employees are earning $10-$12 per hour. Very disrespectful on his part.

    Moral within the company is low. There is a constant undertone of unhappiness around the office, which is a response to managements "I don’t really care" attitude to the staff.

    Advice to Management

    Stop abusing your workers. The very least you can do is pay the industry standard.

    "No respect, no proper compensation, no support."

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    You may be given an opportunity for professional growth as long as you're willing to accept the fact that compensation won't follow.

    Cons

    If you want to work somewhere with fair pay, good communication, a basic amount of respect and intelligent management, Internet Brands is not for you. You won't get anywhere within a mile of market rate for your position and the way the business is run is extremely immoral.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people fairly and you will see higher production and stronger retention.
