Current Employee - Department Head in Oakland, CA

I have been working at Ask.com full-time for 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.

    Pros

    The "no-official" vacation policy where you can take as much time off as you want, casual dress, snacks in the kitchen, close to bart, upper management are easy to talk to, the company makes you feel valued as an employee

    Cons

    Sit behind a computer all day

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Can we get some caffeine-free diet soda?
