I have been working at Inflection full-time for more than a year

Pros

Awesome team culture, everyone shares the same goal to help company succeed. Inflection focuses on work/life balance and the well being of employees. Lots of opportunities to work with talented individuals. We often celebrate milestone success with happy hours and offsite trips. Free catered organic lunch daily, beautiful campus and grounds, free Caltrain pass and shuttle bus. Competitive salary, health benefit, 401K, etc.

Managers care and trust employees with ongoing opportunities to learn, develop and grow. People with big egos will not survive here.

Cons

Dealing with big data may not be everyone's cup of tea, but it has enormous potentials and comes with interesting design challenges. We have a lot of talented fresh graduates who can be rather immature, but also high energy so it's not necessarily a bad thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Love our open-minded CEO and other talented leaders. I'd like to see more people embracing new technology and establishing a better (and open source) platform for our products. Because frankly, they're a bit out of date and may hinder our success going forward.

    Cons

    Full of young, inexperienced employees who dare not question leadership or bring new approaches to the table.
    Older employees have too much sway in business decisions, promoting stagnant thinking and a lack of innovation.

    Encourage new ideas & innovation from all employees on all products.
