    Pros

    Friendly people. Focused on outcomes. Rewards initiative. Challenging ideas is promoted, not frowned upon.

    Cons

    Start out at 10 vacation days, and only get 5 more after every 5 years. Not truly flexible hours.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to work from home and work flexible hours within reason. Be more focused on work being accomplished and fulfillment of employee rather than when the work takes place (i.e. 8-5 every day).

    I have been working at INVISTA full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Internship + guidance made readily available to new hires.

    Cons

    Job is not the most entertaining, management is very old and out of touch and stuck in their old ways. Lots of long time employees who have been in stagnant roles for years, the only way to advance is to move to Wichita.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on actually innovating, not just talking about it.
