    I worked at Intelius full-time

    Pros

    Pros here include: Decent parking compensation program. Near Bellevue bus. Engineers on call get comped on cellular bill. Some smart folks work here who want to do good. Facilities and working areas are pretty new. Working on the 22nd or 16th floor offers good views of Bellevue.

    Cons

    Baggage with a number of older projects, products and botched aquisitions. Lots of wild hair side projects to make a quick buck. Lack of concern for customer and delivering a quality product. Management will lie about a number of things to cover up issues with the company. Lack of willingness to admit failure to improve the business. Company also has a tendency to go low on compensation. Lately employee attrition has been high. Lack of respect for the CEO in the region. Intelius is not a well liked business in the region.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on one product and remove distractions. Learn from your mistakes, and become more accountable to your employees. They know when you make mistakes, so addressing them and making a plan to succeed in the future is key. Get a CEO who's focused on the company's success. The current one is focused on a number of projects. Intelius/Inome seems to be a side project.

    Pros

    They seem to have money to throw around. Facilities are nice.

    Cons

    Very shady business that is suspicious of new employees as they are always scared of the next lawsuit. People are a very strange bunch.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing shady things and skirting the law. Senior management does not seem to have any scruples at all.

    If you're going to work there, do not take a customer service position.

    I worked at Intelius

    Pros

    The pay is OK. The people that work there are nice. On Friday's they have a Tiki Bar with beer.

    Cons

    No internet, no email, no break room that has a sink in it, they do not promote from within, they don't even post their open positions on their website, most of their customers are pissed off. Their product is way over priced and not that accurate. You are micro-managed and treated like a POS when you work in the customer service department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't eat yellow snow.
