I have been working at Ancestry full-time
New leadership team is finally getting us organized and aligned to operate at full speed.
Growing space pains. SF office space and conference rooms are limited, but this may be due to the current construction and build out of additional floors.
Advice to Management
Really great to see what the new P&T leadership team is putting into place. Before it felt like we were all silo'd. Now we're operating as one agile/efficient engine with all parts moving in the right direction. P&T's leader, Nat, takes the time to listen to employees and then thoughtfully makes changes that have improved our work flow. I'm excited to see the strategy now that Margo is in place.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ancestry (Lehi, UT) in November 2017.
Human Resources were slow in responding to my application. However, once I received a response, I completed the hiring process very quickly, within a week. Under normal circumstances, a phone screening occurs, followed by a coding challenge, then finally an onsite interview. In my case, it was insisted to proceed straight to the onsite interview, skipping the coding challenge.
