Former Employee - Software Engineer  in  Oakland, CA
Former Employee - Software Engineer in Oakland, CA

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

Pros

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

Cons

The 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    You can be heard. Upper Management approachable and open to listening to good ideas irrespective of who it comes from. Work culture is open and honest.

    Cons

    Leadership cycled around a few strategies with each one being the focus for a set of months. But then this stabilized and Answers has been focus for a while now which is good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue listening to employees through All Hands and other means.
