I have been working at Ancestry.com as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Ancestry.com is very supportive of career development and doing interesting work while working normal hours. There is no stigma in working from home as well. There is a lot of great technology being developed within Ancestry: any interest that you may have within software engineering can be satisfied within the company.

Cons

I personally don't see too many downsides in working for Ancestry.com: it is a great place if you have relationships or activities outside of work.

    I have been working at Ancestry.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fantastic atmosphere, passionate employees, great location. Even though this company is the largest in its segment, there is no slow down in momentum. Very good place to work.

    Cons

    Not the highest pay, and advancement into the highest tiers of the company is fairly rare. However, generally, the upper management is fantastic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat salary seriously.
