Current Employee - Software Engineer In Test in Provo, UT

I have been working at Ancestry.com full-time for more than a year

Pros

This is a highly underrated employer, it's like working for Adobe, Microsoft, Google, Facebook, or Apple - just in a smaller package.

Cons

It's pretty boring to tell people you work at a genealogy company.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer in San Francisco, CA

    I have been working at Ancestry.com as an intern for 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.
