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

Pros

Industry leading pay and a dynamic environment. Engineering team is top notch delivering an amazing product. The company has a big enough footprint to offer exciting travel opportunities, including travel to Europe and Asia for sales and consulting professionals.

Cons

If you work in Sales or Professional Services there is extensive travel required. Most consultants travel Monday through Friday, sometimes Sunday to Friday. The product lacks direction and has been slow to adapt to some market realities. However this is being mitigated and a bolder product with a much richer feature set is on the way.

Advice to Management

Management needs concrete vision based in reality of the marketplace and solving the real challenges of the customers. The visualization process is a game changer, however the real problem customers have is managing their projects and their documentation. Pay more attention to defining a product that works with existing SDLC processes within organizations and solves the pain points of documentation and review of requirements.

    Pros

    Good people with strong values. They certainly like parties and car racing.

    Cons

    Poor senior leaders
    Minute to minute decision making

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who is not so attached to the product to run the company. The two leaders now are more concerned with being a billion dollar company rather than a highly successful one


  2. "Great overall experience, great people, however, low pay and slow growth"
