Pros

You get to work with talented people who know how to deliver with current technologies! The work/life balance is good - the benefits are good and the pay is competitive.

Cons

Engineers are packed in tight! They are rebuilding cubicles with only waist high partitions - so anyone walking past your desk on the opposite side can see your face and distract you!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Help cut down on the amount of red-tape to get products/features delivered to the customer. Once a feature is developed there is too much red-tape in the way of delivering it to the customer.

    I have been working at Ancestry.com

    Pros

    Benefits and pay can hardly be matched by non-consultant companies in the area. Two company parties a year plus team and department gatherings with lunches.

    Cons

    Can be quite political to find new or better career opportunities. Even executive level positions are filled internally and externally seemingly at random.

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

    Pros

    Benefits for full time employees, 401k, life insurance, free subscriptions for world, great supervisors, and & you could retire here easily!

    Cons

    One downside is they concentrate too much on multi-tasking for too many different call types, so it's makes if difficult to get really at your target.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    GET ON THE SAME PAGE!!! I have worked there for a very long time and see so many different supervisors say different things for the same type of issues. Please take the escalated calls per the customer's request, do stick us with all of them!
