Former Employee - Director in Foster City, CA
Former Employee - Director in Foster City, CA

I worked at QuinStreet full-time (more than an year)

Pros

QuinStreet is a company that pays its employs well and does reward individuals based on performance.

Cons

When I was there, the company was inclined to throw MBAs from elite business schools at every problem. While those professionals are important to a business, they don't work exclusively as line of business managers. Experience seemed to carry less weight than where you went to school and consulting "experience."

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire people with more real-world experience and stop relying on your model of hiring MBAs from consulting firms such as McKinsey and Bain.

    I have been working at QuinStreet full-time

    Pros

    Good compensation, good benefits. Flexible hours. Flexible work from home policy. I've seen many people get promotions and move up. Also many people make horizontal moves to different departments.

    Cons

    I have nothing negative to say. You might read some other negative reviews but some of those people will always find something to complain about. Quinstreet is not perfect, nothing is.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Avoid recognition awards and ceremonies based on social popularity and not measurable performance. Awards based on popularity only demoralize those productive people who are not the social butterflies..
