Took the time to train me. I'm very appreciative with them. Fun place to work.
JR. SYSTEM ADMINISTRATOR (Former Employee) –  Bedford, MAApril 23, 2014
My co-workers took me under their wings and made me feel like part of the team from day one. I learned more than I could imagine and it was very exciting place to learn & work. Deadlines were a part of every day operation and maintaining up-times were very crucial, making this place a high demanding job. I loved every minute of it.

Thanks

The place, in all incarnations, was a wonderful place to work
Knowledgebase Tester (Former Employee) –  Emeryville, CAMay 12, 2018
I was a Knowledgebase (sic) Tester here. I was also an Associate Editor. As an Editor, I tried to build a robust version of the Ask.com application for Corporate clients. As a Knowledgebase (sic) Tester, I tried to "break" same said databases (dBs).

Ask.com (it was Ask Jeeves when I as there), was a good company until, basically, they automated everything and took out the human touch. That, to me, is what made Ask.com so uniq
Pros
Innovative, Fun, Challenging
Cons
At times, in the startup atmosphere in its beginnings, the "challeging" was almost too much so...

Advisor (Former Employee) –  Remote Texas USAMarch 3, 2018
They hire you telling you you can work your own schedule either chat or phone but once you are on board they begin nagging you about more phone time and start texting and nagging you to take calls so it was not as he was portrayed to be.
Pros
Work from home and set own hours
Cons
Micromanaging of Independent Contractors is a bit much
