    I worked at Intelius full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good teamwork among engineers and manager level employees. Good work-life balance and good benefits.

    Cons

    Inept leadership team. It is a sinking ship in an industry where it could easily be successful if they just did a few things right. No customer focus, no innovation, no direction. Upper management (new CEO) does nothing to inspire good work from his team.

    I worked at Intelius (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Fast and start up feel with opportunities if you want to run hard at projects.

    Cons

    Since the acquisition and shake out of the team, the remaining management team is a study in ineptness and back stabbing demoralization. No one I know would or should work here.

    Advice to Management

    Quit.

    I worked at Intelius full-time

    Pros

    Pros here include: Decent parking compensation program. Near Bellevue bus. Engineers on call get comped on cellular bill. Some smart folks work here who want to do good. Facilities and working areas are pretty new. Working on the 22nd or 16th floor offers good views of Bellevue.

    Cons

    Baggage with a number of older projects, products and botched aquisitions. Lots of wild hair side projects to make a quick buck. Lack of concern for customer and delivering a quality product. Management will lie about a number of things to cover up issues with the company. Lack of willingness to admit failure to improve the business. Company also has a tendency to go low on compensation. Lately employee attrition has been high. Lack of respect for the CEO in the region. Intelius is not a well liked business in the region.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one product and remove distractions. Learn from your mistakes, and become more accountable to your employees. They know when you make mistakes, so addressing them and making a plan to succeed in the future is key. Get a CEO who's focused on the company's success. The current one is focused on a number of projects. Intelius/Inome seems to be a side project.

    Pros

    They seem to have money to throw around. Facilities are nice.

    Cons

    Very shady business that is suspicious of new employees as they are always scared of the next lawsuit. People are a very strange bunch.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing shady things and skirting the law. Senior management does not seem to have any scruples at all.

    Pros

    The pay is OK. The people that work there are nice. On Friday's they have a Tiki Bar with beer.

    Cons

    No internet, no email, no break room that has a sink in it, they do not promote from within, they don't even post their open positions on their website, most of their customers are pissed off. Their product is way over priced and not that accurate. You are micro-managed and treated like a POS when you work in the customer service department.

    Advice to Management

    Don't eat yellow snow.
