Growth potential, interesting challenges, and the power to make a difference

Department Head (Current Employee)
Oakland, CA

ProsAsk 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.

ConsWorking 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
