Good company, under the radar

Manager (Current Employee)
Oakland, CA (US)

I have been working at Ask.com full-time for more than a year

ProsYou won't get envious looks at Bay Area parties when you say you work at Ask, but there is a lot of good here. Good people, interesting work, lots to learn.

Latest hires, especially in management seem solid.

ConsThe 'no vacation policy' is bad policy. The people who need vacations are too conscientious to take them and the slackers take advantage.

There is a tendency to give the few slackers the benefit of the doubt instead of getting them on plan and out asap.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess tolerance of low performance, please. Continue the strong hiring track you are on.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
