    Pros

    Intelligent and accessible management that allows for the opportunity to grow into different parts of the company, should you be interested. You get to be a part of the vision for the company and actively build something.

    Cons

    If you're an exempt employee, you will be expected to work long days. Could also use some more systems as the company has grown quickly and needs some tools to relieve the manpower.

    I have been working at Internet Brands full-time

    Pros

    One thing Internet Brands Inc is good at is they only care for themselves and revenue.

    Cons

    - Very low pay compared to the market.
    - Very little of promotion. Even if you ask for one, it takes months to process.
    - No long term growth.
    - High turn over rates.
    - No compensation for classes.

    So if you are fresh out of college, this might be a good place to start while looking for a better job.

    Advice to Management

    Pay its employee for what they are worth, not your greediness for improving company profits.

    I worked at Internet Brands full-time

    Pros

    Met some cool and nice people.

    Cons

    Pay is low and there's no room for growth if you're entry level. You're used as a pawn. No communication or cohesiveness. No effort to boost morale from higher managers. When something goes haywire, the common quote you will here "This is Internet Brands".

    Advice to Management

    Try to lead the team and bring everyone together. Try to actually care about those who are working for you.

    Pros

    Nothing yet. This company cares about one thing, themselves!

    Cons

    Computers - IT is no longer allowed to get computers repaired or replaced due to Internet Brands stepping in just to interfere with revenue and expenses. Let the company run itself and get the resources it needs. You think you're getting a quick buck, but in the long-term you'll lose more and more of that shiny coin.

    Referrals - you want us, the employees, to refer our friends and colleagues, but how can we do that when there is no "shiny package" to offer? You offer us a money reward, but you can't even get the new employee a new computer? This is pathetic. All I can say to potential employees is this... you'll get a 3-4 year old hand me down laptop (keyboards, screens, chargers may not work). Good luck being productive, or non-productive?

    Advice to Management

    Don't take over every company you have under your wing. Things will only get worse as you spread yourselves thin. You can't manage everything just because you see money coming in. Our CTO is onsite maybe 2% of the year it seems. How is a tech based company supposed to run with such lack of support? Get rid of yourselves!

    Great opportunity to learn and grow in the entry-level position. Also wide reach over projects. Relaxed environment, with great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Comp' is a struggle, in some departments more than others.

    Be honest about what you can and can't do, and have power over.
