I have been working at Instart Logic full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

- catered lunch MWF
- fully stocked kitchen
- flexible working hours
- happy hours on Fridays
- generous shares upon employment
- collaborative environment in which everyone owns their work but is constantly lending a hand to make sure the team is reaching its goals

Because of the company culture, everyone is on a first name basis, including members of the executive team. Everyone sits in the same open office and will share ideas with each other and contribute to the healthy balance of work and fun.

Everyone is inspired to work hard, but not because there are managers that are breathing down your neck all day long. You are given respect as an employee and trusted to do your job and because of that, the work gets done.

Cons

Haven't seen any yet.

Advice to Management

Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Awsome management team that's very supportive, great culture, excellent work life balance, free food, and innovative product. Overall, the best company I have ever worked for. Love coming into work everyday! So many opportunities to learn from and work with extremely smart people. Also, a lot of opportunity to grow as the company continues to take off.

    Cons

    Not that many snacks in the kitchen. Other than that, no other cons!

    I worked at Instart Logic full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Start up culture, well backed financially, great idea to be disruptive in CDN space, lots of potential if can execute and build a stable product, free food M-W-F, belief they have the best thing out there.

    Cons

    Terribly inexperienced leadership team, decisions changed constantly (lack of consistency), minimal opportunity to make big money (small compensation compared to the rest of the market), unrealistic expectations, product buggy, special features are not fully baked, terrible location to get to, minimal collaboration/ideas not well received, no runway to ramp, lack of trust with and from management, minimal branding in the industry. Overall they have a lot of work to do and if you don't have an appetite for constant change or patience while they "figure it out", this is not the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Build some trust with your employees by making sure they have ample time to ramp up and make an impact. Don't play with peoples livelihoods with short term expectations or allowing changing moods on the fly to affect decision making. Know the space, landscape, competitive nature of the industry so can strategically attack it and take marketshare. This is not Akamai or Cloudfront, structure the business accordingly that is geared to a start up vs. thinking like you are a big company already. Get the product stable and easy to deploy. Figure out how to make a great place to work to retain/hire key talent rather than displaying signs that are of concern and questionable.
