    I have been working at Impinj full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    This is the best place that I have worked, and I have worked for several companies, including two of the biggest in the technology field in the Seattle area. Impinj has a great company culture that hits the right side of the work/life balance, and a nice mix of hardware and software folks that are surprisingly diverse and have fun working together. The challenge that Impinj is tackling is something that I can believe...

    Cons

    No 401(k) match, yet. No match for employee charitable donations or volunteer time, which is to be expected for a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let our stock investors, including me, distract you from the long-range view and the investments that we are making in research and development. As successful as our IPO was, I would much rather wait to see us realize those really big, world-changing goals.

    I have been working at Impinj full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've worked at Impinj for over 3 years and while there were some bumpy times in the middle we've seemed to have moved past that with a more solid leadership team. The company seems to have better direction now and a more realistic view of the roadmap ahead. The Engineering team is still quite small so there's a lot of opportunity to grow your role. The work/life balance is also very nice here. Work hours are flexible...

    Cons

    You need to be able to handle projects/priorities changing directions quartley. We'll see if that gets better with the new Engineering leadership, but the number of times a project scope has changed direction is too large.

    I have been working at Impinj full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    * Interesting day-to-day work * Opportunities galore. It's an underutilized product * Friendly atmosphere * The team and my organization is fairly awesome * Growth centric culture * So far impressed with recent hires in Engineering Leadership * Compensation at individual contributor level still needs work, but like the recent positive changes of including equity compensation. Not sure why it took so long though....

    Cons

    * People have been siloed in engineering * Management has traditionally been top-down without much upward dialogue. Longer tenure C-staff/SVPs tend reflect this more than new hires at SVP/C-staff level. * Software organization lacks broader maturity. Strong individual contributors, but not much of a track record of delivering a compelling set of software products * Benefits could be better. No 401k match, for instance....

    Advice to Management

    * Make sure you really understand what's going on at the company before implementing trickle-down goal setting * It's a 200 person company. If you're senior management at this scale, you should know nearly everybody * Work on building true cross functional teams to address business problems
