    The best career development I have ever received

    I have been working at Instructure full-time

    Pros

    The company has huge upside and growth - no really.
    If you are willing to do what it takes, management provides the opportunities for career and personal growth
    People really want the best not only for the company, but also for clients
    There is internal training and certification to help grow, the company also supports external education
    The best benefits - great coverage
    Really good compensation
    It is a competitive environment, but at the same time very supportive and generally people don't take themselves too seriously
    It's a rare situation of success and good people.

    Cons

    This has gotten better, but we would do ourselves a world of good if we handle our problems constructively by talking out our angsts with the people we are frustrated with and working together as a team to solve issues. It's hard, but it changes everything and we are more productive. Work and life is already stressful - no need to pile on more. With that said, HR has done a lot to help get everyone on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is great. Not perfect, but they truly want the best for you and will do most anything to take care of people, especially in sales. Keep engaging, teaching and working with employees. Employee success is the most important thing.

    I have been working at Instructure full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful office.
    Extremely smart and talented employees.
    Freedom to be creative in solving problems.
    Challenging.

    Cons

    Higher levels of management are a little clicky and tough to break into if you haven't been around for a while.
    Pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management get to know those you manage! How about inviting those you manage out once in a while to get to know them.

    If you're new to the company, and most are, show in interest in the people that come on board.

    Be open to discuss career advancement opportunities.

  3. Instructure opened up a whole new world of doors for me.

    Current Employee - Regional Sales Director in Salt Lake City, UT
    Current Employee - Regional Sales Director in Salt Lake City, UT

    I have been working at Instructure full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Free Benefits (we pay no monthly premiums as employees for health insurance, as well as many other perks)
    -Awesome culture
    -Best CEO on the planet (or at least the state of Utah...for reals)

    Cons

    -No offices. If you are used to your own office, you will be disappointed. But it's a great collaborative environment and there are plenty of little rooms you can sneak away to for some privacy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I've been really happy with Management at Instructure. I don't always 100% agree with everything they do, but they don't always agree with 100% of everything I want to do. But I feel I am given the flexibility and freedom without judgement to voice my opinions to potentially make the company and my team better.

    Pros

    Flexible with hours, time off, lifestyle. It's all about productivity.
    Healthcare premiums paid 100%!!!
    Hilarious, talented, amazing people.
    Inspiring leadership.
    Upward movement with high growth.

    Cons

    Startup atmosphere requires going the extra mile - lots of pressure to succeed.
    High growth, lots of new hires, must perform above average to stand out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep promoting from within and being generous with benefits and how Instructure cares about lifestyle, job security...the human elements.

    Pros

    Management listens to aspirations and desires, strives to help employees grow in that direction. Work hard, and the sky is the limit. Very progressive organization that pivots very quickly to address market needs. The overall happiness of our paying customers speak for this in its own right.

    Cons

    The company is growing so fast, sometimes the culture suffers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing!

    I have been working at Instructure full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a culture of openness and trust. Employees are given support to do their jobs without being micromanaged. There is tons of opportunity for growth, and internal promotions and movements are well supported. Great health and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    401K matching could be better. It can be very "title"-centric. Sometimes inflated job titles are given out to people that aren't very good at their jobs, while other people that are great at their jobs can't get title changes for trivial reasons (such as years of experience) even if they demonstrate all the qualities needed.

    Pros

    Great company culture. Openness to input from individual employees and teams. Values employees.

    Cons

    Not enough women in engineering and/or management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to see the company - specifically Engineering department - to make greater efforts to recruit women. This could include things like making the job descriptions, interview process and company policies more friendly and appealing towards women. Also having a discussion with employees about a more inclusive culture to those in the minority.
