    Pros

    Flexibility, good salary, some good personalities / talent hired on, easy to understand the product, great support team in India.

    Cons

    Poor accountability cross departmentally, No guidance from upper management, product(s) lack innovation. Company has been around too long to be "where" it's at today. Little growth. Very stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    Hire stronger leads for the departments, invest in employees development and growth.

    Pros

    Good people with a good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a stagnant company. Not quite sure where they're positioned. Perhaps that's why. It's like they're running in place. N

    Pros

    The people, opportunities to grow, weekly Happy Hours, fun outings

    Cons

    Not everyone seems to be held to the same standard. Lack of mentorship/presence by some leadership

    Advice to Management

    Have the same expectations amongst all teams; continue to focus on the keeping the same culture there was a few years ago; hire people that will make an impact, not skate through

    Pros

    PEOPLE - Culture is king. The right culture attracts the best people and helps them accomplish great things. InsideView has taken great care in hiring A players and encouraging them to try new things (try, fail, learn, try again, succeed.) As a result I can say this is the smartest and friendliest group of people I have ever worked with. Also important to note... I laugh hard at least once a day.

    PRODUCT - Best product in the industry in terms of both capabilities and quality. Working with great people is fun... helping your customers win with the best solution available is even more fun.

    OPPORTUNITY - The company offers tons of opportunity both in terms of individual growth and overall market potential. The rate of innovation and level of investment being made in the areas of CRM, Big Data, Predictive and Market Intelligence all equate to being well positioned for growth.

    Cons

    There really aren't many cons. But you need to be prepared to work hard. That doesn't mean crazy hours or weekend work, it just means being super productive and accomplishing a ton. Part of the culture is work hard, play hard (e.g. drop everything at 4pm on Friday for our weekly happy hour) but this is not a place to come play ping pong.

    You also need to be agile. The markets we are playing in are rapidly evolving, as are customer needs and competitors. So one constant at InsideView (other than an awesome culture) is change. So you've got to be adaptable and thrive in a fast-paced environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. Keep hiring stars. Keep setting the vision for the market. Keep being transparent. Keep leading and we will follow... we Insiders are committed!

    Pros

    There is a lot of energy, and being a part of a company that defines what is happening in the market is very exciting. The hierarchy structure is very lateral which is nice, you can feel comfortable approaching any of the directors, VPs, or even the CxOs! Very unique in that way.

    Cons

    The vacation policy and compensation are a little stingy, to be competitive with other companies and get TOP talent in the bay you need to increase both. The lateral structure lends itself to slow decisions being made, IV is not as nimble as it should be for such a small company. There is not a defined way to get into new positions, and often times positions are filled from the outside so that lower level people are not able to grow in their positions.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring from outside, try to give people a chance at proving themselves in the nesxt role - the only thing that is happening is that you are showing a lack of faith in the people you are molding.

    Pros

    Bright, highly motivated people willing to support one another in a truly collaborative way. The culture is a key element to the synergy and excitement around here. Strong leadership team, outstanding products and customer responsiveness.

    Cons

    If you're looking to have an office, forget it. Everyone here is in an open environment with lots of conference rooms and "telephone booths" when you need privacy. Parking is tough, but there is reasonable bus access to the office.

    Advice to Management

    The Leadership team is evolving and as the company grows senior management needs to make sure they keep remembering "it's the people that make this company so successful."

    Pros

    I really like working at this company, the culture is dynamic and fun but at the same time we get a lot of work accomplished. Another thing that I like is that there is ample room for growth and management is not at all hesitant about promoting from within. I have worked for several companies over a period of 30 years and this is the first one that I am still excited to come to work for almost a year-and-a-half in. That says a lot!!!

    Cons

    It would be cool if they had annual reviews in place.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! Maybe slightly more diversity in Senior Management would attract an even wider variety of talent.
