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

    Pros

    - Smart and talented people, some of the best and brightest that I've ever worked with. - Growing fast. Customers, product and employees. This creates a lot of opportunities. - You learn a lot. Management and peers all care about making things better for customers and employees. Almost everyone is willing to teach you about stuff you may not know.

    Cons

    - Fast paced. Con for some but not for others. - There are a lot of things going on and sometimes things get crazy.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Keep communicating everything you can. Keep listening to concerns and empower those on the ground to fix them.

    Pros

    Amazing work/life balance. The best coworkers I've ever had. Great support from senior leaders. Encourage promotion and individual growth.

    Cons

    We're growing so fast, sometimes it's difficult to get the correct information communicated across the board.

    Advice to Management

    The company is growing so fast, it's better to over-communicate than assume everyone knows.

    Pros

    The people are great, great benefits and culture! The work is very challenging and they have sent themselves up to support all of the teams. The customers are very happy with the product.

    Cons

    No real cons yet. In some ways it is a startup still, still trying to figure some things out, but for being that startup, they really have things together.

    Advice to Management

    keep focusing on the needs of the customers and your employees so they can deliver to your customers.

    Pros

    I have never written a review for any of my employers in the past, but I feel like I owe it to Instructure to do so. Instructure is by far the best place I have ever worked. Awesome, awesome culture, fun and interesting and talented people, high quality products, great pay and benefits, tons of upward mobility, and great management. I'm going to have a hard time working in any job after this. Awesome job, awesome people, awesome company.

    Cons

    I try to be a very objective person, and I'm struggling to think of one con. I worry about the culture changing after an IPO, like with any company, but that's all I got.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing things that make employees and customers happy and not doing things that make employees and customers unhappy.

    Pros

    Great people, great fun, fast-paced growth with everyone working together. It's amazing how well they've kept a small-company feel after growing a bajillion percent in the last 4 1/2 years.

    Cons

    It's growing fast. There can be growing pains as they figure out how to deal with sooooo many new people.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Awesome people everywhere you look. Great benefits--they make sure to take care of the people that work there. The view of the mountains ain't bad either

    Cons

    Open office full of enthusiastic people. If you are an easily distracted introvert that generally hates people that are happy... this might not be the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being awesome!

    Pros

    This company really goes above and beyond for their employees. Not only are the benefits killer, the managers are really awesome. You get 100% medical paid for, and I was also able to add on my domestic partner and his children. It really helped us out and we save $400 a month on premiums! Most departments get to choose their own schedule as long as you work your 40 hours a week. They have really great pay, and the atmosphere is a lot of fun. I can honestly say that for once, I am completely happy with my job and the company I work for!

    Cons

    You have to be with the company for 4 years before you get any stock. There is no referral program.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work, you're making us happy!
