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

Pros

Ask is the perfect sized company. Ask has great revenue, tons of traffic and data and an established brand. I feel like I have the power to influence substantial change at Ask while having the security and quality of life that startups can't offer.

Cons

Working at Ask.com will not impress your tech friends. It's not glamorous like a startup, it's not massive like Google. Space is a little tight in the office as well.
