    Pros

    Most important message - you're not going to get very much out of Inflection if you're not willing to work and push for growth and learning. Training and opportunities aren't set in stone and often times non-existent. You have to be proactive, assertive, and eager to learn. Being analytical is great, but making it actionable is key.

     Growth opportunities - a ton of growth opportunity if you're a 'go-getter'. Different roles will have different ceilings, so there is no guarantee that you will reach you life's potential at Inflection, but there's still plenty to learn and do if you seek it.
     Perks and Support - there are great perks at the company and plenty of support... IF YOU ACTIVELY SEEK IT. Everyone's busy, everyone's got a job and Inflection is no exception. You will not get the support you want or need if you aren't proactive. With that said, there are a number of smart and experienced people at the company, use it to grow yourself and the company.
     Get it done - if you want to do more and try out different things, certain teams will allow you to wear multiple hats. As long as you establish your track record of being very competent in your role, there are opportunities for you to tackle projects beyond your scope.

    Cons

    Growth - it's both a pro and con at Inflection. Certain roles will see no real upward movement. This isn't the same as compensation, where there is still upside even in the same role. But as with all start-ups, go for more equity early on.
    Middle management - there really aren't any great middle managers. Middle managers being defined as not individual contributors nor VP/C level.
      Cross-team collaboration - it has gone from rare to nearly non-existent in the past year. There may be plans to change that, but something is fundamentally flawed when marketing should be involved in the process and could have very valuable input for product during a new site design and launch.
      Shared product vision - anyone outside of top product folks will have very little insight into what the company or products are up to. Only by getting close with PMs or having a direct contact with upper management will you have any idea of what is going on, other than high level initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please provide stronger support to employees with several years of experience versus new grads. I've been involved in managing both entry-level and experienced hires and the feedback is clear - the experienced hires need more. They need more vision, more role clarity, more growth opportunities and more management.
      Be a visionary and inspirational - don't talk high level all the time, get into the details. Answer why, inspire why the people should be excited about tomorrow, next month, next year and on.
      Finally, communicate more to teams that could be effected by your decisions. Certain teams need a longer runway to make changes and the sooner they know, the less wasted time there will be. The last thing someone wants is to be working on a project and at the 90% mark have to scrap it.
