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

    Pros

    Benefits are generous. Food all the time. Staff are extremely friendly. Company believes in fostering a healthy culture and doing local events. Make changes to operations and leadership when appropriate. Typical growing pains but that's recognized.

    Cons

    If you don't like eating lots of food (for free) then it can be hard to stay out of the cafe.

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop the train and keep doing what you've been doing.

    I worked at Imprivata part-time

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Great products. Easy mobility within company. There are many planned outings. Working there allows you to gain great insight into the healthcare IT market.

    Cons

    Location is difficult if you live in the Boston. Company was recently bought by a private equity firm. Possibility for them to be cutting certain departments.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to spend less money on areas that don't directly contribute to overall revenue. Certain areas of marketing may be un-needed and there is money being wasted on a few products that add a disproportionate amount of revenue

    Pros

    People
    Ambition
    Great prospects
    US driven
    Good petential ahead

    Cons

    US-driven - too much so.. no visits by any US VP's, what does that say ?
    Mixed communication from US - messages delivered late or not at all ?
    US 300 plus staff, EMEA 30 or so ?
    No VP sales in EMEA - no leadership= people are doing what they want and not reprimanded
    Some bullying going on - by Directors in emea, no HR to manage them
    Is anyone even listening ?

    Advice to Management

    Pay us a visit, listen if you care, do not bother if it's a token thing.. people will walk unless nurtured..

    I worked at Imprivata full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues were awesome, good benefits, unlimited PTO

    Cons

    It all depends on the team, the team I was on was not the best.
    -There was way too much favoritism.
    -Many false promises and lies from management.
    -Management cares nothing about you if you are not in the small buddy group

    Advice to Management

    Please stop the lies and false promises and just as a reminder...Your team is bigger than just 3 people....

    "Marketing and Sales focused company."

    Pros

    Imprivata has a strong flagship product that produces excellent revenue. Imprivata excels at marketing to its customers and the healthcare industry. It is well positioned to build upon its brand and expand its business as an IT security provider that ‘gets’ healthcare. The company isn’t in any danger of closing up or collapsing anytime soon. HR has been criticized in other reviews, but they are functional and professional.

    Cons

    Imprivata is a sales and marketing focused company. Leadership favors vocal extroverts with strong personalities that can up-sell and promote their own contributions. Introverts and quieter individuals are repeatedly overlooked and undervalued in the organization. Politics and alliances are essential to getting promoted. Compensation is consistently under-market for top-tier technical talent. A strong ‘fear of public failure’ culture hampers risk-taking and innovation. Fire-drills occur far too frequently -- a result of letting long-standing structural problems fester and under resourcing back office and r&d teams.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond passion and the loudest voice in the room to make business decisions. Create a culture where it’s ok to fail instead of vilifying mistakes. Recognize and reward all kinds of leadership and leaders, not just the ones you prefer and are just like you. Sunk cost fallacy and personal loyalty is preventing sound business decisions from being made. Marketing can only compensate for a lack of innovation for so long. Execs dressing up in costumes and free food may be fun and easy, but building a great place to work involves the hard work of creating environments where innovation can thrive and everyone’s achievements can be recognized, not just the bullying extraverts.

    Pros

    So many positive people work at this company, and they are really the company's highlight. Whenever a coworker leaves, that is always the thing they say they miss the most. Everyone is very supportive, and there are solid opportunities for growth and movement within the company if you seek them out. In general, the culture is upbeat and there are lots of fun events that draw in new employees and get people excited about the company.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lot of turnover, not all departments are created equal so it's important to get a grasp of the culture for the department you are interested in.

    Advice to Management

    There are ways to improve culture besides buying pizza for people- let's take some focus away from overblown internal events and focus on strategies to retain employees in the long run.

    Pros

    Sound IT products. Technically savvy people who are friendly. Foodie type company. Nice office space and clean and modern work areas. Benefits are okay.

    Cons

    The arrogance of some of the managers and their bully tactics go unchecked by HR. It runs rampant and ruins people's lives. There's a culture of darkness in that respect with certain departments and how they are managed. It causes fear and distrust among teammates.

    Advice to Management

    Hire experienced, educated, considerate, and kind managers who enjoy working with people of all personalities and who want to help build their staff to be successful people both personally and professionally.

    Great friendly people that are ready to work and tackle new ideas. The workflow worked well for most.

    Cons

    The company is expanding and changes are bound to happen. People do come and go, but usually there's a new person ready to fill the spot.

    Advice to Management

    As an intern, we were pushed to try new things and expand our horizons which any employer should do; cultivate the future.
