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


    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.


    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.

    Motion Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Redwood Shores, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


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


    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.
