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

    Pros

    If you don't want to grow and just want good salary ... This is the right place. Once you learn the work to be done at QS; you don't need to apply your brain; you can keep that aside and carry on your daily job. You can enjoy your life here. Good salaries.

    Cons

    1. No Standard Processes
    2. Particular type of repetivtive work; so no scope for Technical Growth
    3. No Scope for Innovation
    4. Average industry experience is less; so Maturity lacs everywhere
    5. If you want to become something in life ... Don't join QS

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they require any advice ... they are doing good business in Marketting with current processes ... it's not a software company ... Its a marketting firm

    Pros

    If you intend to not grow technically and get paid for it, ideal place!

    Cons

    Lean and improve your css skills.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep recruiting interns, that's the best way, given the quality of code requirement, you will not be able to retain any good work force.

    Pros

    Definitely a good place to work for web producers, SEO experts etc

    Cons

    Joining Quinstreet as a tech person can be extremely disappointing. There are 2 technologies basically used, Java (to build products and platform) and PHP (website maintenance). Both are more of mundane work and less innovative (n least documented).

    Job security is extremely low, especially in Foster City office, employees are often laid off ! There is no proper long term planning in hiring (n firing). Cost cutting is always there.

    Promotions are joke, and only based on experience, rather than performance. Average period of stay of employees is 1 year

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its time to have structured long term goals and not just thinking of the present. Most importantly, though tech guys are there to only support business, skilled guys can make a lot of difference. Do take care of them and try to retain them for long term profit.

    Pros

    - You ca learn a lot as fresher in shorter period of time.
    - You learn complete model of company
    - One can easily check API developed by company, no restriction.
    - Not much of strict rules.

    Cons

    - You can not grow much technically, once you complete around 4 years of experience with company.
    - As per US market situation layoff keeps happening which can put you in insecure mind state.
    - Senior management don't give any importance to technical growth of company/employee. Every time cost matters most.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - You need to plan for Developers career progression, it should be better structured.
    - Latest technologies don't add any harm to company.
