Pros

You get to work with talented people who know how to deliver with current technologies! The work/life balance is good - the benefits are good and the pay is competitive.

Cons

Engineers are packed in tight! They are rebuilding cubicles with only waist high partitions - so anyone walking past your desk on the opposite side can see your face and distract you!

Advice to Management

Help cut down on the amount of red-tape to get products/features delivered to the customer. Once a feature is developed there is too much red-tape in the way of delivering it to the customer.

    Not easy to be noticed for chances to be promoted

    Advice to Management

    Ancestry.com could do a better job of providing growth opportunities to junior employees, as well as making sure the management of the Customer Solutions department has expert-level knowledge of how to use the current versions of the software that department is supposed to be able to support.

    I have been working at Ancestry full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Innovative engineering culture! Catered lunch Mondays! Modern office space with diverse workforce. Great benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    Not always the most exciting stuff to work on. Can be a bit of a challenge to work in San Francisco when most of the stuff is going on in Provo HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Bring even more development to the San Francisco office to take advantage of the Bay Area talent.
