    I have been working at Insider Inc. full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    - Retirement home for developers; if you're lazy, don't care about career development, this is the place for you

    Cons

    - Retirement home for developers - Dead-sea effect in full swing - Constant changing priorities and over-utilization of specific people - No measurement, teams have no idea of the impact of the work they are doing - Success ceremonies without any knowledge of impact - Primary goal is feature output without any focus on refactoring and tech debt work - Because of focus on feature output, work is released in large...

    Advice to Management

    Start over. Get rid of waste, focus on salvaging the relationship between tech and product. invest in growing people that are still there and hold people accountable. Nurture those that still care. Alternatively, fire everyone and outsource. It's a blog after-all, not rocket science.

    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.
