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

    Pros

    Nice hours, good pay, commissions are easy, generally flexible with hours

    Cons

    Micromanaging constantly, little opportunity to move up, in general talking to old people on the phones is not ideal, constant calls, very understaffed, not interesting work at all

    Advice to Management

    Stop micro-managing everyone- employees are very dissatisfied even if they don't say so.
