I worked at Ancestry.com full-time (more than an year)Pros
Ancestry.com has a great company culture, and management listens. The HR staff is second to none and will update you on job opening within the company. If your full-time the benefits packages are amazing. If you are a college student looking for a flexible part-time job look no further. Free ice cream, soda, coffee, cereal, fruit, and full meals are super cheap because the company subsidizes the onsite cafe.Cons
If you are looking into member services(the call center) the company culture is completely different. It is in a separate building, training is top notch, and the current management is empathetic. However, several years ago a certain manager squashed the culture of the call center and turned it into a grinder. He got promoted.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO

I applied through other source – interviewed at Ancestry.com.Interview Details
Phone screen, couple other calls (strangely none with the elusive hiring manager) then full day of interviews. Showed up and waited for 15 minutes because the receptionist was both absent and unaware I was coming that day.
The in person interviews consisted of some general behavioral questions then a case question. The hiring manager wasn't in the office that day and was supposed to do a video interview but they couldn't get the system to work, so just skipped that one. Why they would schedule in-person interviews for a day when the hiring manager wasn't going to be in the office is beyond my comprehension.
I later had a follow up with the hiring manager and one other person. They never bothered to follow up, even after a couple thank-you emails and a later touch base email. Overall I can say it was a pretty negative experience.Interview Questions
