    I have been working at Internet Brands part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Casual environment, nice atmosphere, opportunity to learn a lot, and company events and perks to keep morale and general work ethic up.

    Cons

    Unless you are hired for a management position you won't advance much (no promotion) and they are not crazy about raises. Raises must be approved by company CEO after an official request for one is submitted. Can start to take on more responsibility than you are being paid for.

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

    Pros

    Flexible hours
    Fun, energetic environment
    Young atmosphere
    Great coworkers
    Ability to gain experience and the opportunity to try positions you hadn't naturally
    Right by LAX, so you get to watch the planes take off

    Cons

    Lower than average compensation
    Things progress very slowly
    Not much money put into advertising/marketing

    Advice to Management

    Allow your employees to grow and succeed. So many people here are hard workers and are not being compensated for it as much as they would at any other company.

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

    Pros

    Great learning environment, a lot of great talent and cool people, easy to approach upper management, great location, by the airport.

    Cons

    Pretty much 0 benefits unless you are upper management. You will not be payed well, even if your manager leaves and you take on their responsibilities so that they don't need to hire anyone else, you will not get a pay raise or maybe if you're lucky a minimal bump. I know a ton of people who have taken on more responsibility as peers left, with no added compensation or even promotion in title.

    Advice to Management

    You're goal is to save money, and get a good "deal" on your employees. If that's your mentality turnover rate will stay high and you will lose some gems that you could have kept if you cared a little more about your employees.

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

    Pros

    Some very smart technical people there, great place to learn and hone technical skills, flexible hours, most people were friendly, ability to learn different aspects of the business

    Cons

    middle management miscommunication to upper management created differing "realities". mediocre salaries, no real performance incentives available, seemed to have a very high turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    because a manager is technically brilliant qualifies them to be a good manager or leader.
