Mission: Unlock the full potential of advocacy, for advocates themselves and the organizations they support. (An advocate-centric world, where companies provide better value and overall experiences to their customers in order to succeed, is a better world.)
I have been working at Influitive full-time
This place, man...you could not ask for a better employer! Ridiculous amounts of trust and autonomy; a crazy amount of emphasis on empowerment and continued learning (you're given 4% of your base salary to spend on education annually); amazing culture with tons of transparency; legit equity opportunities for employees; so much market potential and we still don't have any direct competitors, although we're looking forward to their arrival...
Being a pioneer is hard, we're tackling a ton at once and can lose focus on what's most important. Go-to-market teams seem to act with immense urgency, other teams do not quite have the same fire. While everyone is friendly and awesome, some people seem to have been spoiled by the early success of the company. Cross-functional communication needs to be improved, there is too much tribal knowledge retained inside departments.
Advice to Management
Instill a sense of urgency across the organization and don't be afraid to challenge employees who push back. We're building something great and it's fair to expect employees to work 50+ hour weeks. I've never worked at a tech company where the vast majority of our engineering department appears to check out at 5pm, just sayin'...
I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Influitive (San Francisco, CA) in September 2015.
Email, Phone Call, On Site. I dealt with one of their VP's who obviously negotiated his way to that title. He was in no way close to the calibre of person you would expect from an executive. I think anyone who wants to have the arrogance and self-fellating nature of an executive, should take the bad with the good and have the fortitude to follow up with candidates to hand out the bad news. To be clear, I'm saying they didin't posess the common decency to follow up with the unsuccessful candidates after the interview to let them know they didn't get the position. In fact they reposted the job ad the next day and just kind kind of hoped the old candidates would go away. Rejection is part of the hiring process, any candidate knows that, but not even sending an email to let them know their candidacy wasn't successful does not fit with the portrait painted by these other (suspicious) reviews.
