    Pros

    Some of the smartest minds to learn from.
    Good pace of development. Really enjoyable to be a part of.
    Flexibility in lateral movement.

    Cons

    Getting all the information about a project is difficult if you have to juggle between different sources, but this won't be the case for too long.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is good when you take extra efforts in making us aware of any of the major decision taken. Can't think of better strategy to earn Employee trust.

    Pros

    Having worked in technology for a long time, it's nice to be among people who have little ego, are enthusiastic, and make work fun.

    Cons

    Small companies always have limited infrastructure. A big part of solving every problem is defining it and figuring out the solution.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Our real success will be maintaining the integrity of our products and support throughout our growth process.

    Instart Logic - Breaking the mold

    I have been working at Instart Logic full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Instart Logic has been a great place to work since day one. There is very little ego on this team, and everyone is very self motivated. Bureaucracy and ego's can really stifle efficiency in start ups. That is why It has been so refreshing to work with such intelligent people in such a no nonsense environment.

    We just recently moved into a beautiful spacious new office in Palo Alto.

    Cons

    It has been difficult to fill technical positions in timely fashion because we have developed a very high standard.

    I have been working at Instart Logic full-time

    Pros

    I came to Instart Logic very impressed with the product/solution. I am a firm believer that the solution will make a significant impact on the computing world. It didn't take long to become equally blown away by the team. It does not matter who you work with (executive, sales, engineering, dev, marketing...) everyone is top notch. Very much a team approach. I am very bullish on Instart Logic and could not be happier.

    Cons

    Any "startup" will go through challenges. It is part of finding your way. Process/procedures are still being vetted out. Internal communication around roadmap/release dates could be a bit tighter. Comparing Instart to former employers they are very agile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing. Exciting times!

    Pros

    People - Instart Logic has managed to put together an incredible group of people that are not only brilliant at what they do, but also awesome to work with. It's like having a family that you actually hand-picked!

    Office Culture - great office environment, very typical of a silicon valley startup. Nice open office space, great amenities (food, drinks, conference rooms, couches etc) and an awesome location.

    Leadership - the entire management team are a pleasure to work with. Really nice people, very well educated with lots of experience in the market space. This is the right team to make this company the next big thing.

    Cons

    I'm sorry I didn't find Instart sooner.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. Continue hiring the right people and being approachable.

    Pros

    Culture of transparency, and team-first environment.
    Superior technology, great direction, strong leadership and unlimited market potential.
    Top-tier investors.
    Industry best hiring practices.
    PLENTY of room for rapid career advancement.

    Cons

    With all the pros of working here, the cons fall in line with a typical start-up. Training program needs to be built out, and sales strategy/positioning is still in the process of being defined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With the company's rapid growth plan, don't lose sight of the culture that has made this place such a great environment so far. Continue to keep employees at all levels involved in the company's strategy and vision.
