    Company Reviews

    When I tell my friends about Networked Insights, I talk about our culture. We take care of our colleagues and make sure that they have what they need and that they enjoy coming to work.

    I love how rapidly we can develop products based on feedback we hear from the market. We were hearing from partners how amazing it would be for them to build out audiences themselves, and less than a year later we have a living breathing product to bring back to those same people.

    There’s an apparent sense of autonomy within the work we perform. I love that I can come and go as I please without being constrained to a certain amount of hours, as long as the work gets done.

    I love how laid back the office is and how every day is different. One day I will be coordinating fun events for my colleagues, and the next I could be helping the sales team with call sheets for top clients.
