    Pros

    Instart has an innovative product, visionary leadership, honest culture, and smart/fun people!

    Comp: 4 - Above avg. for Silicon Valley/SF - this company runs on carrots, not sticks

    Product: 5 - Game changing service that speeds up the web.

    Sales: 5 - Well developed pitch, fast growing team, smart and respectful leadership. Enterprise grade service with applications in high growth industry verticals such as SaaS, e-commerce, mobile... anyone that has a web site or application could be your next deal.

    Perks: 4 - Catered Lunch MWF, paintball/movie trips (next trip is to go see Interstellar!), suggestions are welcome, stocked kitchen, etc.

    Leadership: 5 - Intelligent, Transparent, and cares for people. The hierarchy structure is through respect, not fear.

    Cons

    Early stage so we are still developing processes in each dept... this also gives you the chance to discover your inner entrepreneur

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain your focus on building a great product and nurturing your team as we scale.

    Pros

    This is a no BS culture which is refreshing. All quickly growing start-ups have great successes which Instart has had. I think a better indication of what it is like working here is how the company handles mistakes. There is an assumption here from both management and co-workers that all employees are both incredibly competent and are doing their best to deliver on their goals. With this type of an environment, nobody is afraid to examine something that doesn't work because they know that it alone is not a measurement of their own capabilities. Failures, though not desired, are seen as a part of the process, are reviewed extensively, and help drive the future processes moving forward. This leads to a feeling that the company gets stronger in foundation and better in development each day and creates an employee base that is not afraid to experiment (where appropriate).

    Cons

    The main negative I would have could also wind up being a positive. The leadership has taken the idea that "all start-ups who fail do so because they run out of money" to heart. While the office is terrific and any item that is critical to your job is quickly purchased, it is not the environment that will wind up on TechCrunch's Cribs or anything. That said, I'd rather have cash in the bank vs. an embroidered pool table if the current market changes.

    Pros

    Very intelligent senior staff. Very knowledgeable about the industry and extremely supportive. Culture is awesome (very familial). Great group of people that are gearing up to change the way people interact online.

    Cons

    This is a small and rapidly growing startup which requires employees to wear many hats. I love this quality however this may not be a positive attribute for those that require a more structured environment you may find in a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow the company but keep the culture intact.

    I have been working at Instart Logic as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Dynamic start up culture - conscious of the growth potential and laser focussed on customer care and great opportunities for all employees to grow. I have rarely experienced a company that is so focussed on truly caring and respecting the customer. Completely open plan office - including executive level - everyone is approachable and working towards one objective "respect and care for the customer" which will lead to stronger engagement with the customer. lunch is catered for 3 days per week and the culture empowers each individual to contribute and feel they are contributing. No finger pointing...very supportive...dynamic....great environment to grow career wise and gain tremendous experience.

    Cons

    there are many growing pains typical of a start up....but management are addressing this....so no real cons that i can think of.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    consider employee perks and ongoing training. more team building events.

    Pros

    Great team, great technology that lives up to its promise. The future is bright for Instart Logic.

    Cons

    The only con, if it can be considered one, is that this is a fast moving start up. If you are looking for a cushy sit on your rear job just for a paycheck this is probably not for you. If you, however, want a seat on a rocket ship Instart is for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep aggressively innovating
