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 Management

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

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

    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 Management

    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.

    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.
