    I have been working at Imprivata full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Nice offices, healthy snacks, some great people still in the company (but not as many as there use to be)

    Cons

    Very Political environment (East vs West Coast mentality), Management does not like to be questioned or disagreed with (even by Experts who they have hired for their knowledge), some teams are given unreasonable hiring objectives (find people with 10+ yrs of experience who are happy to do the entry level work 50% of the time and get them to join for $10k less than they are making now). GM wants to see daily progress reports for individuals. Innovation is held back or differed in favor of copying their major competitor’s newest feature and mountains of technical debt are not just going to go away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take responsibility for making things better – don’t get hung up on only hearing “positive forward thinking language”. The frustration and sarcasm you hate hearing from your teams are important gifts they are trying to give you because they care about making things better.

    You have hired people with 15+ years of experience creating software, not listening to them because you don’t like what they are saying doesn’t mean they are wrong. When a team with multiple locations consistently calls out ‘Meddling Management” as the number 1 things slowing down their progress – don’t disregard it !

    Pros

    Positive team environment - team is largely remote but everyone helps to back each other up. Lot's of new people - team has almost doubled in size recently.

    Cons

    Sometimes processes break down as we scale, but management works with the team to help implement new processes when needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There has been an increase in promotions from within the company, please keep it up!

    I have been working at Imprivata full-time

    Pros

    There is a genuine interest in keeping the culture lively and interactive. Regularly provided food and beverage. Plenty of communication for senior management. The work life balance is solid. The open door policy is in full effect and you never have to be concerned about going directly to the source to get things done.

    Cons

    Need more regularly defined training. A training calendar would be a good place to start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to promote the company culture and energy by staying close to the troops. A high growth organization like Imprivata can be distracting for senior management, so keep your eye on your people and what made you successful in the first place.
