    I have been working at Invenio Solutions full-time

    Pros

    - nice boss - ok 401k plan - quarterly awards

    Cons

    - working for clients (makes things complicated) - same pay regardless of your education and/or experience - lack of teamwork between departments (i.e., inside sales and sales ops...sales ops give you heck of a time)

    I worked at Invenio Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The training is very long but extremely helpful, very cool people to work with and your not micro-managed. full kitchen

    Cons

    It is a stepping stone. The base pay is ok but commissions are horrible because most of what you sell never gets installed, strict on being on time to work

    Advice to Management

    Change bonus structure to reflect sales not what ends up being installed because once you have sold the service it's out of your hands and you have done your job

    I have been working at Invenio Solutions full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The vast majority of people who work here are talented, educated, and friendly. There are many client campaigns one can work on, as openings come about. With drive and a little bit of luck, one can move up or laterally.

    Cons

    Since this is a contract work environment, one's job is never secure. If a client decides to take their business elsewhere, or the contract is not renewed...well, you're without a job and benefits. People who you have been working with for the past 6-12 months are suddenly no longer around. There is also inequality of wages; some contracts pay more than others, even though the work load could be every comparable.

    Advice to Management

    Make more of an effort for team-building activities. We work really hard, and letting off a little steam every once in a while is good for morale.

    Pros

    good pay work-life-balance Health benefits I was able to pick my own schedule, which is always a plus. The hours and pay are terrific.

    Cons

    The managers are not always very respectful and professional, they have a tendency of talking down to employees in a condescending and not helpful way.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more supportive in the environment.

    I worked at Invenio Solutions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None. Run don't walk away from this place. Unfair treatment and quota setting. Crappy office, crappy people, unreal expectations, truly talented people will not stay here.

    Cons

    Unethical, illegal, poor management, people last. Should be sued for most business practices. HR is ridiculous. Nothing good about this place. Wasted time and energy. Don't even consider Invenio as a valid place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get over yourself. Go find a real job.

    Pros

    Great work environment, great training and great people.

    Cons

    Every year they tend to go through lay offs on or around July 1st. Hard planning for the long term since you do not know if your contract or your teams contract will be renewed.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the snakes in the grass. They kill the spirit of the company and cannot be trusted.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Training, not great, but not bad. Most co-workers are friendly. Hiring process not too difficult. possibly an okay place to start a technology career, as long as you go into it with your eyes wide open.

    Cons

    Beware!, fine place to work as long as you don't have a family crisis or illness. No sympathy, they'll simply cut you loose. Also, This is essentially a call center. If you can handle the cut-throat nature of this business, go for it. In my humble opinion. Invenio has potential to be a good organization. However, low level managers have a deer in the headlights mentality. The upper management right hand, doesn't know what the left hand is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Management knows what needs to be done. They just need the will and desire to do it!

    I have been working at Invenio Solutions full-time

    Pros

    Most of my co-workers are really good people Casual dress code (although some people take this too far in a not-so-good way) Decent hours - sometimes we get let out early the day before a major holiday 401k matching

    Cons

    The company is cheap beyond belief - cheap computers, cheap, mismatched workstations, expensive benefits, the Austin building is constantly having some type of repair work done because the building hasn't been well maintained, parking lot floods when there is rain Wants skilled experts at entry level wages and will try to tell you that they are doing you a favor by paying you below market rates Avoid leaving the building around 10am when everyone floods outside for their first smoke break, else you will walk through a cloud of cigarette smoke Pretty sure they've found people doing drugs in the restrooms before, but that's hearsay (would not surprise me though)

    Advice to Management

    If you really want your people to stay long term, it's time to start investing in good talent at market wages, and raising the bar on who you bring in the door. It's one thing to be fiscally responsible, it's another thing to be cheap. I see this as a starter job that is going to help me build my resume for when something better comes along. Benefits are too expensive relative to income. Invest in your infrastructure a little bit - the building is kind of a dump.
