    I worked at Insider Inc.

    Pros

    - Good benefits - Unlimited vacation is really unlimited. - Great snack selection, good coffee - Flexible work hours - Great place if you’re at the end of your engineering career, looking for early-retirement.

    Cons

    - Lots of technical debt resulting from years of deprioritized maintenance. The mantra has been don’t upgraded until end of life. - Constant context switching (daily). - Terrible place if you’re a new graduate looking to get some real world work experience and learn some transferable skills. - Work gets bounced around from one mediocre engineer to the next. Eventually the same small handful of capable people take over...

    Advice to Management

    Watching the company wide all hands (parent company Axel Springer) it’s evident that every unit is thinking longterm and making investments in technology and engineering teams except Insider Inc.. Proper software engineering is time consuming and expensive. If you can't afford either just switch to Word Press or Drupal and call it a day.

    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...
