I have been working at QuinStreet full-time

Pros

Good compensation, good benefits. Flexible hours. Flexible work from home policy. I've seen many people get promotions and move up. Also many people make horizontal moves to different departments.

Cons

I have nothing negative to say. You might read some other negative reviews but some of those people will always find something to complain about. Quinstreet is not perfect, nothing is.

Advice to Management

Avoid recognition awards and ceremonies based on social popularity and not measurable performance. Awards based on popularity only demoralize those productive people who are not the social butterflies..

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

    Pros

    Nice location, free snacks in cafeteria, smart co-workers. If you have Hollywood dreams, you might even get a chance to star in a theatrical production produced by a C-level executive.

    Cons

    Frequent layoffs, Company is not doing well financially. Outdated / old technology stack, so no chance of learning something new.
    Primary criteria for growth in company is how good you are at sucking up. This is an open secret and the management kind of likes it that way. Not a merit-based company.

    Advice to Management

    The company might be better off if some of the C-level executives were doing theatre full-time. The culture in that particular department is toxic.
    Mr CEO, You have stuck with this set of people and see how it is turning out. Maybe it is time to get to a makeover. The next set of people cant do any worse. You deserve a better team.

    Pros

    - You never complain about compensation, one of highly paid places.
    - Culture is good, causal environment.
    - Balancing your work and personal, manager respects your personal priorities.

    Cons

    - Career opportunities are veryyyyy limited. Top management don't value talent, so don't expect much support if you want to do something innovative.
    - No process ownership, if any wrong kind of people own it. While implementing new projects there is no value for business analysis practices and very less efforts on complete pre-project analysis and planning.
    - There is very less effort made to retain employees, even when team, vertical or the whole company is struggling.
    - Make sure you think twice before joining, don't solely go by compensation it can be pain if you decide to move on.

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate frequently with your employees about current strategy and goals, specially now when the company is so bad.
    - Fast implementation of your technology projects is costing you a lot. When your revenue is directly proportional to time your system and sites stay up, then why take such a risk. Hire specialist who can set process at every level, specially on the tech side. I mean the company is not a start-up any more.
    - Most of you tech team has settled down to very causal and relaxed attitude, shake them up a little bit.
    - Try to retain your motivated or talented employees, you can get a lot done from them. Compensation is not the sole thing to satisfy your employees.
