Pros
  • I like how Instart Logic is fixing performance for web applications in a different way than traditional CDN's (in 9 reviews)

  • Great team, great technology that lives up to its promise (in 7 reviews)

Cons
  • Inevitable "growing pains" (ex: constantly changing team structure) (in 5 reviews)

  • A little bit more structure as we scale would ensure the work/life balance would be better (a nitpick) (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    I like working at Instart Logic because we are still so small that, even as a pretty junior resource, I get a lot of exposure to all the executives at our company. While I am in sales, I get an up close look at product, finance and marketing as well. There is a lot of room for growth and I am never bored and have learned so much in the 5 months I have been here. The leadership and camaraderie on the sales team is excellent. Some of the superficial perks are that we get free lunches on Mondays, Wednesday and Fridays and a fully stocked kitchen.

    Cons

    I live in SF so it's a long commute to Mountain View. Classic start up issues as far as there is more work than there are people, but that could be a pro or a con depending on who you are.

    Pros

    Great team with some really smart talent but no egos which is nice. We have some disruptive technology in a space that has not seen much new in some time so its great being the new company with something very different than the competition. Still an early stage startup so its easy to make a big impact with the company and the customers. But they are past much of the really early stage risk. It feels like you can make a difference here. Great benefits for a company this small.

    Cons

    It's a startup so the work/life balance could be better, everyone works really hard. It's still early so not as much infrastructure as a more established company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep innovating and staying ahead of the rest of the competition.

    Pros

    The team is pleasant to work with. Management seems to have zero ego and no appetite for unneeded drama. The investors are top notch and seem quite enthusiastic about the space and prospects for the company. The technology is unique and cutting edge. Marry all of that to a great market opportunity - with well-understood, vast demand - and you have a very nice place to be indeed.

    Cons

    The office location is not the best. It's easy to access from unlovely 101, but it's in a nondescript, flavorless area.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course as this one should surely make it to the playoffs, if not the Super Bowl.

    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!
