    Pros

    There is a clear focus for the company on customer satisfaction and innovating on the current products. Unbelievable set of customers they are building on and are in the middle of some exciting new markets with addressable advertising.

    Cons

    There has been a focus on bringing in quality leadership and changing the culture. That is always a challenge but so far most everyone has been embracing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On the right track, keep your ear to employees and customers as you are doing.

    Pros

    Very knowledgeable people that are well-respected within their market space and that are very passionate about their product. Striving to be a more professional software development shop.

    Cons

    You really need to know the cable, broadcast, syndication advertising space well if you want to be successful and accepted within the culture. Striving to be a more professional software development shop.

    Pros

    Allowed flexibility to work from home.
    Pay is good, but you need to ask for raises.
    Management is very approachable.

    Cons

    Can be long hours. Management often overcommits.Whichever client complains most recently is the one that gets attention. Employees are left working overtime to deliver everything that was promised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The new management team understands the business much better than the old team, but needs to be careful not to try to do to many things at once.

    Not much of an office culture other than the occasional team lunch or happy hour.

    I have been working at Invision full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The executive team holds a monthly town hall where they discuss the company's financials very candidly and share the success and challenges affecting the bottom line.

    Cons

    There is no culture in the NY office. On the one hand it is nice that we have the flexibility to work from home as needed but that leads to a desolate workspace where one never knows if a colleague will be in the office or not. What's lost is the chance encounters in the kitchen or the overheard conversation in the hallway about an ongoing project that might be of interest.

    There is no sense of an Invison way of doing things. The company is in the middle of trying to establish what tools an processes to put in place across the organization. At this stage in the company's life one would expect that to be established with maybe some initiatives to improve tools and process but it is if they have never existed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be tougher. Articulate a strong direction. Too much of the communication from the top seems to have come from an HR 101 pamphlet.

    Pros

    Management has a product line and vision that should keep this place around for a long time. It's a small company that rewards the hard work, treats employees well, allows working from home, and lets you learn as much as you can handle

    Cons

    Company is a little too spread out. ~120 people spread over 3 offices (and dozens of telecommuters) means that there isn't much "culture" and phone/online meetings can be way too inefficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't accept incompetence. Higher standards should be enforced.

    Can be fun to work for, but career development won't happen

    I have been working at Invision full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of people who are smart, friendly and willing to help. Happy hours, when they occur, are great too. Monthly company meetings inform everyone how the organization is performing financially and helps keep everyone focused. Management gives flexible work schedules to accommodate life balance. New senior management is good news.

    Cons

    There are multiple teams and no real description of roles or responsibilities. Long hours, depending on job function. When majority of the company has "Work From Home" disease on Friday, it's hard to tell who is really working or available. Management is top heavy; too many managers, directors and vice presidents. Requests for help from IT take a long time (days, weeks, sometimes ignored).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to re evaluate every role in the company and take care of the hard working people that contribute to success. Cut the fat and stop rewarding mediocrity. Terminate people who don't work out quickly. Need to hire HR and work on career development.
