    I worked at Imprivata full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Smart people who know what they are doing
    Fun company culture and great parties
    Nice modern offices with well stocked break rooms
    Solid IT and Ops teams - things seldom go down and don't stay down long - if you need it, your get it quickly
    Some of the best executive staff that I have had the pleasure of working with - key members of the C-level get it

    Cons

    Favoritism is strong in some team's upper and middle management resulting in a lack of work life balance for some teams and at times, poor product quality.
    The same management team follows ‘the three laws of performance’ religiously, demonizing team members who cannot present their message in positive way.
    Some key leaders are in way over their heads and are dragging down their Divisions, with their teams succeeding in spite of – rather than because of them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shift away from a Command and Control culture, it hampers innovation and sends the message that you don’t trust the experts you hired. Invest in Servant leaders who are force multipliers, rather then leaders who drain productivity.

    Listen to your teams – when presented with feedback you do not like – do not try and discredit it, throw it away, or shoot the messenger. They gave you honest feedback and then watched your actions, and I doubt anyone will make that mistake again.

    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.

    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.
