    Pros

    The first pro that got me in the door initially was meeting with the co-founder/CEO Matthew Monahan. Matthew exudes an inspiring passion and big picture vision for Inflection that is enticing to take part in.

    The company has done a solid job establishing and maintaining culture as front and center. Employees are respected and extremely well taken care of not only with perks, but with work-life balance. That said, I'm not generally someone that excels in work-life balance, so I was also happy to see that when needed, the team could also put the pedal down and really crank at a high level under pressure.

    Lastly, I think the business is in a great place in terms of having a portfolio of opportunities with differing risk profiles. The company can and will continue to grow by doing what it already does best (profitable B2C marketing, data-driven optimization, clean UX, employee-first culture), but also has some riskier, big swings in play (Identity.com and others) that create compelling upside.

    Cons

    I had an extremely positive experience. My departure was for personal reasons. Arguably the company pursues too many priorities simultaneously, but I know this is actively being monitored and that the company is well resourced/capitalized to have the luxury to pursue multiple priorities simultaneously.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on keepin on.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Inflection (Redwood City, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First point of contact was at my career fair. Warning- they place A LOT of emphasis on this. If you chat it up with them there and they like you, you'll pretty much be moved onto the next round.

    Now this is where their process goes downhill. I had my first phone screen at the end of January, didn't hear back for three weeks. Then I get contacted to have my second phone screen at the end of February. And, lo and behold, did not hear back for ANOTHER three weeks and then was asked for ANOTHER phone screen at the end of March. When April rolled around and no news yet again, I reached out only to be told that the position has been filled already.

    My qualm about their recruiting process is that it can be condensed to three weeks, yet they string their candidates along for three MONTHS. The Inflection team and the interviewers themselves were great- very personable and down to earth. But their recruiting process for their college program is inherently flawed and, for lack of a better term, inconsiderate towards the candidates.
