I have been working at Ancestry full-time (More than a year)
Collaboration is critically important here. Some senior leaders (c-suite) are pretty tone deaf but the mid-level leaders and VPs are holding a high bar. New products are developing and new people are joining so fast now the atmosphere is really exciting. But they have not forgotten their roots - collaboration and problem-solving are still top of the list.
New c-suite leaders are working to find their way. Many are new and have learned that the company team has a lot to offer and their 'vision' (aka ego) has no real place amongst so many smart people. They are learning quickly and the progress is clearly visible.
Advice to Management
C-suite ... Put your egos on the shelf and keep engaging with the teams. They are super smart and know how to execute.
I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ancestry (San Francisco, CA).
Standard interview process. Started with an initial phone call followed by a code pair and an on-site.
The whole process was very enjoyable and the recruiter was very helpful through the entire process not to mention very fast at coming back with next steps and finally the offer.
