Pros

there are potential growth opportunities and advancement in the company, fast paced environment, good experience for newcomers, fresh out of college looking to enter corporate world.

Cons

Culture of the company changed over years, can be long hours with little pay, loss in incentive to do more than the task at hand do to culture change, mediocre moral.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

re-evaluate company values and strive to keep to them, a happy employee is a hard working employee.

    Only take the job as a last resort and keep looking even if you are hired.

    Former Employee - Low Level Management - Too Many "titles" to List in Foster City, CA

    I worked at QuinStreet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very little to speak of other than the liberal PTO schedule after 3 years of employment.

    Cons

    Horrible pay. Expectations of the employees are not nearly commensurate with the salaries. Upper management attempts to bribe their employees with worthless stock options (just check the historical track record) while selling their own options as soon as they vest (can be confirmed on any financial site).

    Management promotes and shelters their favorites even though they are inept in their roles. They also squash any constructive criticism and dissension.

    Management goes out of their way to advertise their "company values" (printed wall placards everywhere you turn) yet they are merely window dressing and not upheld or committed to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start holding yourself as accountable as you do your staff.

    Walk the talk and stop over-promising and under-delivering.

    Start to recognize the talent you have and the huge amount of talent that you have lost through the years instead of burying your head in the sand and denying the absurd attrition rate.

    Former Employee - Customer Service Representative in Beaverton, OR

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

    Pros

    Friendly and supportive coworkers, very relaxed dress code, some of the managers and leads are quite friendly

    Cons

    Customer service people are treated like cattle, kept as temps via Randstad for upwards of 2-3+ years, and provided no benefits or vacation time, save for 7 days a year of combined sick/personal time. Virtually no growth opportunities, outside of a handful of people who beg, plead, and brown nose, and if you aren't friendly with senior staff, you will go nowhere.

    The work itself - lead generation - is extremely shady and you are encouraged to mislead customers as to the true nature of the work, and what will be done with their information. Excessive scrutiny of what you say and do, combined with massive turnover, has cultivated a paranoid atmosphere. Executive and administrative staff has almost zero involvement with the call center side, save for the rare visit with call center leads and managers, but don't acknowledge or speak to reps at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reform your business model to build the brand rather than just hiding it behind multiple layers of deceptive practices and front companies,
