    Pros

    Room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    I have yet to find something I would place as a con. Not that there may not be any but I don't feel them.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ancestry.

    Interview

    this was absolutely the worst interview I had (out of 25 interviews that happened ).
    The 'interviewer' just stopped in the middle of the process and stopped answering my emails and basically 'ghosted' me. Stay away from this place. What a joke
