I worked at QuinStreet full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Still not that big that you will not have access to senior management. In general I feel people are very friendly and I am happy in general with the personal side of my coworkers.

Cons

The company has high aspirations, but it is eternally understaffed and that doesn't play well.

    I worked at QuinStreet as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great Location, Great Work Environment, Decent Salary

    Cons

    PM's with no technical background demanding unrealistic timelines from developers, Developers find better opportunities else where; in the 4 months I was there, I saw developers who built the core framework leave the company for smaller, but more interesting start - up companies.

    Advice to Management

    Developers should be treated alot better, and career progression for Developers should be better structured

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Not a lot of pressure
    PTO
    Not micro-managey
    Work-life balance

    Cons

    Insider culture. Those "in" with COO get promoted; those outside much less so.
    Outdated model. The internet has grown up while QS sites have not.
    Don't feel great about what you do -- selling leads to Visa and University of Phoenix
    Not a ton of internet talent. Haven for former mid-level consultants who bring a macro-perspective (and skillset) to a shrinking company.
    Cubicle farm
    No 401K match

    Advice to Management

    Work on your brand. Hire a real PR firm. Bring in a VP of media that can really make compelling content.
