    Great product, high turnover, bad management

    Product Engineering (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsFriday Lunches (take-out), Thursday massages, snack bar (small for a startup, but you can request almost anything), good teammates. Customer Service is a focus of the company. It has all the right stuff for an amazing company, just needs management.

    ConsWorking from home is discouraged/disallowed. Extremely-high employee turnover. Several employees didn't even last a week, very few in Engineering/Operations will last a year. Unclear communication from management with conflicting priorities. You'll often get directions from two layers of management as if they don't talk to each other. Expect little positive feedback, no opportunities for advancement, no-notice weekend work, and to be replaced at any time. If you make it past 3 months, you might be ok. If you're promised something in an interview, get it in writing, and be prepared to negotiate for your salary. Non-engineering employees seem a little happier.

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on productivity, not face-time in the office. Trust your employees. Communicate to the staff. Communicate within management. Provide for skills and career advancement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Opportunity for growth, sort of...

    Product Engineering (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    Pros- Good benefits though 401k contribution would be nice
    - Weekly massages
    - Good work / life balance
    - Decent opportunity to learn and grow

    Cons- Communication is lacking. Little to no transparency within the organization from the C level down
    - Criticism of work is less than constructive
    - Employees do not feel trusted or empowered to do their job
    - People randomly disappear from the organization with no explanation, creating distrust and low morale

    Advice to Senior Management- Trust and listen to your employees; communicate with them without tearing them down. No one is going to do the best work possible if they feel they need to tiptoe around you
    - Business will get worse if you don't learn to trust your people and listen to your customers

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Highly focused startup environment

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee)
    San Francisco, CA

    ProsInsightly provides the fun environment and huge upside of a startup, with the salary, benefits and work/life balance you'd typically find in a bigger company.

    ConsInsightly offers some good in-office perks (weekly chair massage, weekly team lunch, free snacks & drinks), but not as much as some other startups.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
