Former Employee - Director says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than 3 years Cons: - Management team strongly lacking management acumen. At first I wanted to give them all the benefit of the doubt (many really do seem like nice people), but after year after year of poor business decisions and empty promises and a struggling business I gave up on that. - RAMPANT nepotism of the worst possible kind. I lost count of how many times during my 3+ years there when kind, hard-working people were laid off unnecessarily while lazy, rude, incompetent leeches on the management team were promoted simply because they “go way back” with the founders/ and/or their golf buddies and/or their parents are important people/ and/or no one else on the management team has the guts to stand up to them and have a “difficult conversation” with them. - HR, aside from several truly wonderful employees, is NOT to be trusted with anything confidential and NOT worth seeking any sort of advice/help/etc from. You’ve been warned! - Benefits are pretty crappy: no 401k match, limited insurance options, etc. - Pay is pretty crappy: aside from the aforementioned leeches on the management team, most employees are paid significantly below market. Competitors frequently “poach” from Flashpoint ALL THE TIME, but the reverse never happens. Hmm I wonder why?! - Company simply isn’t doing well financially, largely due to the aforementioned reasons."
Former Employee - Director says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than a year Cons: Unhealthy culture. Founders inexperienced and cost people jobs and stopped growth. Inexperienced sales and customer support and finance management. HR has no care about employees, gossips and lets bullies run all over people."
Former Employee - Manager says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than 3 years Cons: Company culture is highly political with constant side maneuvers by leadership whereas the dissent suppressed and punished both directly and indirectly. The company competency is jihaddist research at its core comparable with the general media coverage. The company focus is on open source. Analysts are focused on rewriting news publications and other secondary OSINT analytical conclusions for customer reports (rarely seen any primary research or collections). It is the company leadership answer to intelligence. Free lunches are a way to counter a highly political environment. Be aware."
Former Employee - Sales says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time Cons: Flashpoint has seen over a third of its company get laid off starting in November and continues to hemorrhage top talent as they grab their life preservers in search of a boat that isn't capsized. Poor leadership in many areas of the organization have led to highly toxic bullying and clique behavior with some of the worst sticking together in an effort to push everyone else down. Most of the top analyst talent is gone with the exception of very few. HR is non existent and turns a blind eye to the destructive culture right along side the rest of senior management. Too concerned with the flashiness of marketing instead of putting out a sound, consistent offering in product and services. Under performance of lofty and unrealistic sales goals coupled with lack of innovation and execution has lead to the complete deterioration of company and culture."
Former Employee - Analyst says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than a year Cons: Company used to have one of the best intel teams in the entire industry back in 2016-2018, however, now the company is under-performing: most of the top analyst left, while client relationship desires better. The company is caught in a cycle of managerial mistakes decreasing the already-mediocre quality of product. Nominal career growth (virtually all you get is a number or adjective added to your title after a year of work (if you will be able to handle for that long). Minimal job security: the company had a massive lay-off of 30% of workforce this fall and there are no indications that this won't repeat.

Former Employee - Analyst says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than a year Cons: The vision and product are the most disappointing. The company cannot understand why they fail and rationalize it."
Former Employee - Sales says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than a year Cons: Support led organization - there is animosity towards the sales teams. Highly micromanaged environment. Highly political environment Innovation is at a low point."

Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"I worked at Flashpoint full-time for more than a year Cons: Driven by numbers. Technology still has a ways to go. Difficult to be heard. High stress."
