    I have been working at Inflection full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    At Inflection we kick off our week with high energy. Monday team meetings include agreement on our priorities and plans for the week ahead. I dreaded Mondays for 20 years of my corporate life and now I can't wait to see my team and get started. It's rewarding to make an impact and work with such talented professionals.

    My proudest moments at Inflection are when our team members are recognized for their hard work and creative solutions. I work primarily on the employment screening side of our business and the GoodHire team is a fresh, eclectic and diverse mix of geniuses with a lot of energy moving in the right direction. I have seen more product growth in my 11 months at Inflection than in 5 years at any other company I've worked for. Our customers love our product and the support team is world class, which makes my job even more fun.

    Inflection is a truly transparent culture. Most all organizations in the valley claim to be but Inflection lives this value and we all are better equipped to meet our goals because of it.

    Cons

    Previous restructuring caused some shifts in morale but the ace team in place is focused and determined.

    Advice to Management

    Remain transparent.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Inflection (Redwood Shores, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    1. phone interview with general information
    2. 2nd interview with a higher up HR person
    3. in person interview with 4 different people some with design backgrounds some with a marketing "social" title.
    4. followed by weeks of not getting back to you. Having phone interviews not be finalized because their HR person forgot to schedule them.

    Like many of the reviews say this place plays itself off as a "startup" and runs a puppy mill campaign actively targeting recent grads. Allowing for low wages and unqualified youngsters with "management" titles. Making for a painful in person interview full of "uh huh" and "giggly laughter" responses. The interview allows you to have lunch with your potential coworkers allowing you to see the great divide of the people who actually do work (programers, designers, sales, etc.) and the rest of the collective dorm people, 99% of which where from Boston oddly enough. Free lunches and massages and other silly perks seem to be the jedi mind trick that keeps the recent grads drinking the kool aid. When you have enough work/life experiences you realize these are simply a means to offer less salary and keep you working, no thanks.

    Interview Questions

    • Many of the questions had nothing to do with my skill set and where merely "what can you do with our brand?" type.   1 Answer
