    I have been working at Impinj full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are awesome - smart, talented, collaborative and overall GREAT. Management displays a good amount of transparency. Perks include unlimited time off, bonuses for biking/busing/walking to work, tuition/training reimbursement, lots of fun events that give you the opportunity to relax and get to know your coworkers.

    Cons

    For years the RFID industry didn't take off as expected so major career advancements could be tough due to little internal growth.

    I worked at Impinj full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Emerging technology, bagel Fridays, quarterly company events, stock options. Impinj also offers an open paid time off policy that the company values for their employees. CEO has a clear vision.

    Cons

    Mid-management lacks communication and training engagement with employees, in other words you are pretty much left to fend for yourself and believe it is a result of growing pains. Lots of water cooler talk as well which is not professional.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make yourselves available to train your employees and better engagement to make sure new employees have proper knowledge and tools to succeed.

    Pros

    Great group of people working in an enthusiastic, supportive environment. Best products in their market. Great location in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. If UHF RFID ever really takes off, Impinj is poised to take the world by storm.

    Cons

    UHF RFID market hasn't grown as anticipated. Salaries are ok but not great. Too many layers of management for the current size of the company. Small cubicle workspaces.

    Pros

    Leader in Gen2 RFID. Wide variety of tasks. Informal, friendly atmosphere. Fun technical challenges. Engineering employees are valued and recognized for their contributions.

    Cons

    Salaries are only so-so. Passive UHF RFID market hasn't turned out as well as hoped. Commuting in the Seattle area can seriously cut into personal time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work. You've done a terrific job creating a company culture that makes employees feel valued for their contributions.

    I have been working at Impinj

    Pros

    location
    smart team
    quality of management
    bagel fridays
    not a sweat shop
    respected in the field
    even distribution of responsibilities

    Cons

    There are some very smart engineers and accountants, but there are some very areas of the company. Manufacturing and IT were not strong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The senior management seem good, but there is some middle management that seems unaware of the client responsibilities and the middle management focuses on process for the sake of process.

    I worked at Impinj

    Pros

    It is a good location. The work force is mostly young and very open-minded. The company is very supportive of alternative transportation for its employees including being very accomodating for buses and vanpools.

    Cons

    The ability of management to make a plan, support it, and flow it down to the various departments is poor. To hire people and then lay them off a month later before they are given a chance to prove themselves is bizarre and indicates and extreme level of short-sightedness

    Doesn't Recommend
