    Pros

    Awesome people work here! I love most of my coworkers and then atmosphere is very laid back and fun.

    Cons

    The company pays very little. They don't care much about their product. They don't seem too concerned with their employee well being. IB offers mediocre benefits and doesn't match 401K contributions. They allow horrible employees to continue working at the company despite proof that these people are terrible workers. You can talk to HR all you want, but nothing will be done to improve anything.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees when the complain to HR and don't keep terrible employees around who don't deserve a job. Be more concerned with employee happiness and less with profits.

    I worked at Internet Brands (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was relatively easy to get a job and many people find it to be a decent stepping stone. The people I worked with were enjoyable people for the most part.

    Cons

    Company wants to do everything in the cheapest way possible, to an irrational extent. Employee turnover is very high due to low salaries and stinginess with raises and promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Identify your key employees and do what it takes to retain them. Seems like you guys have no idea how much you are losing when you are losing employees left and right.

    I have been working at Internet Brands full-time

    Pros

    I have worked at Demandforce (internet Brands) for almost 2 years now. In those 2 years I have been able to develop my sales skills, work with some great people and grow in my career. They also encourage self development and offer resources to allow me to improve skills in areas outside my normal day to day.

    Cons

    Their are growing pains similar to other tech companies who are transition or implementing new roles.

    Advice to Management

    They do a great job finding out whats important to me in order to grow my career.

    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.
