    Joining QuinStreet .. It was the biggest mistake of my life ...

    Senior Engineer (Former Employee)
    Pune (India)

    ProsIf 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.

    Cons1. 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 Senior ManagementI 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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No technical growth

    Web Developer (Former Employee)
    Pune (India)

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

    ConsLean and improve your css skills.

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

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Web developer

    Web Developer (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

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

    ConsJoining 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 Senior ManagementIts 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very good company for fresher or 1-3 years of experience

    Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    Pune (India)

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
