Very good company

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Oakland, CA

I worked at Ask.com full-time for more than 3 years

ProsInnovative leads who can always come up with new products in new domains. Very fast growing company and keep acquiring many companies

ConsThe company's search engine marketing development team is controlled by cognizant contractor , who keeps kicking full time employees. He and another junior lady were controlling the entire team, the lady was kicked off by their own contracting company. It would be great to get your own full time employee and get ride of all contractors

Advice to Senior Managementplease invest your own full time resources. Don't invest on contractors and make them to control full time employees.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
