      Pros

      Innovative, cutting edge products People - talent, ethic and drive the best I've ever experienced in 20 yrs in the business Fast-paced, never boring Lots of room to grow, contribute, learn and earn

      Cons

      This is a start-up. That's not a con for me, but it may be for you. If you want career guidance and your hand held, keep looking. If you want to make your mark then this could be the place for you. EMEA team is in growth mode and the time commitment can be very intense - you need to take care of yourself and know when to say no. Typical EMEA >< US culture issues require maintenance - energy that could be better spent selling, implementing and growing business. Again, it's not something that needs solving, but it's a drain sometimes.

      Pros

      From a technology point of view, Instart Logic represents a new direction from the old network centric focus of traditional CDNs. This makes selling the idea exciting for both employees and prospects. So far the employees I have met include a lot of very smart motivated people. Good package Exciting growth possible

      Cons

      Very much a start up with all the usual drawbacks/advantages Hours can be long and plenty of travel (although this is done in a flexible way)
