Default Internet Brands

Does anyone work for Internet Brands? Someone recommended it to me a long while back and I've applied twice. Never heard a thing either time. I assume they just weren't hiring. If you can get on, are they good to work for?

I've been writing for Internet Brands for three years. As far as I know, most channels are no longer assigning work. I'm in VetInfo, PuppyDogWeb and WAHM. VetInfo's been dead since around New Year's. WAHM I haven't seen anything in a year. Some say there is the occasional project, but I never see them. My editor told me PuppyDogWeb was about to start back up with a huge project, but he apparently told writers before it received final approval from management and after an apology, I've heard nothing since. He also told writers that other channels were not accepting new writers and not to waste time asking for referrals to other channels. Given that, I'm thinking my time with IB is over.

Some channels actually have a good amount of work right now, but it it not that way all the time. They only seem to update each channel with titles a couple times a month. So they're not dead yet, but I highly doubt they are hiring.

I write for the finance channel, and there haven't been any new assignments in months.
