I worked at QuinStreet full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The culture was pretty relaxed when I worked at Quinstreet with a nice work life balance. Fun events and amazing holiday parties. The office layout is nice and functional.

Cons

The company's vision was pretty poor and they missed several opportunities to stay competitive because they weren't willing to change their business model. The people at Quinstreet were among the best I've ever worked with, but unfortunately many of the best ones are no longer there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value mid-level talent more. I saw a lot of great talent leave to higher paying start-ups while I was there.

    I worked at QuinStreet full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The opportunity is here to work on a relevant segment of online marketing. They're well-positioned for the future in terms of web properties and traffic. The pay is reasonable if you're in software. You need to create your own career path. The technical opportunities are there, but you have to be proactive about it.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be mentored or have strong leadership in the Engineering team. The senior leadership is pretty in-bred and they tell each other that they're doing a great job, when in fact, there's a large vacuum of technical leadership. As long as the business-side of the company blindly accept whatever message the engineering group says, nothing is really going to change. Very little accountability. Promotions and attention give to those who kiss butt and never raise concerns or reveal problems in the code or teams. If you cross the path of the CTO or her minions, you should start writing up you resume and leave on your terms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask yourself why mid-level talent keeps leaving, but the top people don't.

    I worked at QuinStreet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work from home and PTO

    Cons

    Compensation is not up to the market rate. Company had many Lay offs. Developers have to deal with bad quality code from offshore.
