    I worked at Insider Inc. full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great perks - WFH options, pretty much your own hours. Do as little or as much work as you'd like.

    Cons

    Top heavy management. Almost more product managers than engineers. Titles given to match salary requirements of the market. Turnover rate is really high. Little to no high level technical representation. Rarely punishment for those not working (3 commits a month? all in who you are friends with) Working hard is rewarded with more work. Technical debt is suffocating No training opportunities or expectations to...

    Advice to Management

    New management since I was there, but the rules still apply. Be the same person in an engineering meeting as you are in a product meeting. Flip flopping is seen as weakness or betrayal. Be brutally transparent - rumors and secrets spread in that place like wildfire. Focus on growth. Very quickly developers become stagnant. Treat developers like adults. If they don't work, punish them. If they do work, give them...

    I have been working at Insider Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Excellent company culture, plenty of after work events, co-worker are very friendly, and the office is very inclusive making it a much more rich experience, plenty of room for growth, and management really tries to guide you into a position you love.

    Cons

    Sometime you'll take on new responsibilities but pay won't reflect that

    I worked at Insider Inc. full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Flexible hours. Great flexibility regarding vacation time.

    Cons

    Take a good look at the work agreement that they present to you before signing it. Make sure to ask them to send you the work agreement before you sign the offer letter, otherwise they may present the work agreement to you once you have already begun employment. Unless you want Insider, Inc to own all your work permanently, I recommend you look to continue your career elsewhere. Also, watch out for the non-disparagement...
