I have been working at Ask.com full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Ask is the perfect sized company. Ask has great revenue, tons of traffic and data and an established brand. I feel like I have the power to influence substantial change at Ask while having the security and quality of life that startups can't offer.

Cons

Working at Ask.com will not impress your tech friends. It's not glamorous like a startup, it's not massive like Google. Space is a little tight in the office as well.

    Pros

    Unlimited PTO, free great snacks, lots of accessible cheap food in nearby Chinatown, great laid-back atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not sure how sustainable the business will remain. But management has been trying to make changes that will hopefully improve our product.

    I have been working at Ask.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great, smart people to work with. Enjoyable, committed workplace (both intense and laid-back). Nice benefits, including flexible working arrangements and time off.

    Cons

    Would like more structured or formal methods of sharing ideas that are noncompetitive (i.e., not hackathons). Salaries are on the low side.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to ideas from all. Continue to look for ways to innovate and lead, creating new products for new users and markets.
