    I worked at Inflection full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Inflection’s culture is very strong. The office is lively with people chatting, people hang out after work, and meetings are fun and upbeat. The company has done a great job recruiting people who form strong relationships at work.

    Inflection also has an executive team with strong moral leadership. The background check industry doesn't always do right by consumers, and sometimes it's downright shady. But leadership has always made the tough decisions to stick to its principles even when it left serious money on the table. It's nice to know that your company is one of the good guys.

    The company is a certified B-Corp, which means that it's held to rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. The result is a company that's really generous to its employees and the community.

    Finally, I think it's a great time to join Inflection. I was there for five years and saw ups and downs (products sold, layoffs), but I left at the most exciting time. New products have found the right market, the strategy is focused, and growth looks great. Anyone joining now will get in at a time where momentum is strong but it's still early enough to make a significant contribution.

    Cons

    More like a word of warning: the people who thrive most at Inflection don't wait to be told what to do. They carve out their own job descriptions and career paths. It's a very collaborative team (instead of hierarchical), so you'll be expected to manage your own workload and drive initiatives you believe in.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Inflection.

    Interview

    Absolutely terrible experience. The recruiter emailed me at all hours of the night, including one time after midnight (I happened to be up studying) to ask if I was available for a Skype interview the next morning.. They dragged the process on for about 3 months and 8 interviews, including both of the cofounders just for me to be told that I wasn't being hired. When I asked why the woman said 'There isn't a specific thing I can really point to, but we think you would be a great fit and we think you would do a fantastic job'... What??
