    Internet Brands bought out the company I work for about a year ago. My company is located in NY, and Internet Brands is located in California, so we didn't actually get to meet a representative from the company that was now essentially taking us over. They did however send over someone from another company based out of Chicago that they had previously bought out. This company was similar to ours, also a website hosting company. The guy who came to our office let us know that everything would be “business as usual”, yet he also stated how "excited" he was for what was to come. We never did get to find out what he was so excited about…. Over time, they would send someone else over from that other company to check in with us. We had very little interaction with anyone from Internet Brands though, and were never really told who we could go to with concerns, or who was "in charge" of anything. We had an HR contact, but once that person resigned we weren't officially given another point of contact. Promises had been made in original employment contracts that were not being honored. Yearly performance reviews that were given in the past or that had been promised were no longer being given, raises were no longer being offered, and no one received end of year bonuses which were offered every other year and were relied upon as part of our yearly income. We were overworked and underpaid, with no one to voice our complaints to because we no longer had a boss and the upper management didn’t have answers for us either. Employees quit due to the unfair treatment and realizing that there was zero room for advancement anymore, and temps were hired to replace them instead of permanent salaried employees. Training was not offered to these temps, so the work was not getting done properly which made the workload and frustration levels increase for the remaining employees. Eventually they just completely stopped hiring replacements for the employees that kept quitting so it was basically impossible to keep up with the workload and no one was compensated for taking on double or triple the amount of work than they used to do. We soon found out that while we've been asking them to hire more people for our office in NY, they instead had secretly hired a "back up team" at the Chicago office to help us out. Why would we need a back up team?!! We needed a team in OUR office. We kept asking if they were shutting our office down, and were assured that everything was okay, and we would still have jobs. They claimed they were looking at the budget first, and then we would get new hires. Well, a few weeks later, an HR rep from Internet Brands hopped a plane to our office to deliver the news that our office would be closing and we are all going to be laid off. First time we ever actually met someone in person from Internet Brands. Now we are expected to basically train and assist the new team that is replacing us while they transition into taking over the company that our staff collectively spent years building loyal clients for. Good luck retaining the clients who have been treated like gold by a hard working and caring staff. It’s unfortunate that no one from Internet Brands got to know any of us well enough to know who the real honest, loyal, and valuable workers were.
