I worked at Instart Logic full-time for more than a year

Pros

- Free Lunches on M-W-F.
- Had a lot of opportunity to work on my crisis management skills.

Cons

- The executive team is inexperienced, and it shows.
- Very questionable morals.
- Their pitch is the best part of the product, it makes a great power point, but has challenges in real world applications.
- There is zero cultural bonding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Hire Executives that have experience, start with a CEO with industry experience, or any experience running a company.
- Stop using "we are a startup" as an excuse.
- Be accountable.
- Stand behind your word.

    Pros

    Instart Logic is taking on a huge market opportunity with a very disruptive technology! What makes it even more special is the timing of this, riding an omnipresent wave of web application content consumption over wireless networks.

    Its all the more exciting to be part of this tremendous team where I get to learn from my peers every single day. There is a very open and flexible work culture which focuses heavily on solving the right problems which deliver the highest business value. There is just enough process to allow getting work done in the most efficient way possible without slowing down. There are team lunches thrice everyday and a boisterous happy hour every Friday. Mountain View office location is great with all the great eating places nearby!

    Cons

    None really, maybe there should be a bit more out of office gatherings but I am nitpicking now!
