    I worked at Inflection full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been meaning to write a review since I left Inflection. To both new graduates as well as more senior hires, my advice to you is this: you can do better than Inflection. In my years as a professional I have realized that to be able to excel and be motivated in your career, you either must 1) love the product or experience you're providing to customers or 2) admire the vision and leadership of the executive team. Neither is possible at Inflection. However, I considered the pros to be: -nice, open office surrounded by greenery where you're encouraged to get outside and walk -free catered lunch and weekly massages -friendly people who consider coworkers to be friends -frequent happy hours and offsites -excellent work/life balance (to the point where people take advantage) -ability to work from home

    Cons

    To my earlier point, it is impossible to be motivated by the products at Inflection. Their only moneymaker is a people search engine that makes money by selling public information as a subscription product to unknowing customers. They built their customer base by using shady marketing tactics and now continue to scam money out of the people who fell for them. When I left, their other products were fledgling at best and had little hope to ever be profitable. It is hard to go to work everyday knowing that you're contributing to products that add no value, and perhaps even take away from those who use them. In the workplace, if you don't believe in the product, to stay at a company you have to at least believe in the leadership - ultimately this is why I left Inflection. The company is run by a pair of immature brothers who promote based on friendships and politics, and hire a swath of new grads every year to try to make the company have a young, start-up feel. They dump their money into perks like weekly massages and free lunch because they know it is the only way any talented person would work at a company that makes money by selling people's personal information. They promote transparency but never tell employees how poorly the products are doing or how exactly they make money - instead they simply use the distraction technique by throwing another party or happy hour. The work/life balance is great, but it also leads to extreme complacency and has a hugely negative effect on efficiency. You will stop growing and learning here after the first 6 months, and even growth in title is slow and not guaranteed.

    Advice to Management

    Take a good, hard look at your company and acknowledge your failings. It's time to pack up and call it quits, boys. Sales are falling, turnover rates are off the charts, and celebrating random developments will only distract your employees for so long. Let your employees remember what it's like to come to work every morning excited and motivated.
