    Pros

    In business environments, “teamwork” is a word that is often used/overused and rarely a reality. Imprivata is the exception. At Imprivata, teamwork is how everyone works every day. It’s part of the culture and can be seen during the best of times and most importantly when the chips are down. As a service provider, I’ve honestly never seen a company where everyone pitches in in such an honest fashion regardless of who owns the problem or how it’s impacting their day. In the truest sense of the word, to be at Imprivata is to be part of the team and part of something bigger than yourself. It’s also refreshing to see an executive management team who understands how important this is and nourishes in every imaginable way they can. Truly, a place you can enjoy coming to work every day!

    Cons

    The only thing that comes to mind is all the great food around all the time makes dieting hard!

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up. You've got something special here.

    Pros

    This company has an incredible social culture! Tons of food; free breakfast on Mondays and free lunch on Fridays. Summer outing for employees and their families, year-round team sports like softball, basketball, volleyball and a morning golf league. Yoga Thursdays, trail walking the minuteman path during lunch and there’s also a group of employees that run in the morning. So when you add it all up…food + fitness + friends =)

    Cons

    The company was indeed acquired by a private equity firm in 2016. As with any acquisition there was a period of transition. However, the uncertainty has settled and it is still a work hard, play hard environment. Employees have been empowered to not to only maintain the culture, but to add to the fun inside and outside of the office.

    Pros

    Comptetive Comp & Benefits
    Fun Events, Ridiculous amount of food
    Good teams
    Ability to improve healthcare tech

    Cons

    Outside of town, tough public transport from town

    Advice to Management

    Imprivata is a growing healthcare tech company out on RT128 about a dozen miles from Boston. Would nice to be in town, but the base tends to lean towards young family professionals, which is a bit more suburban. Imprivata is going through a transition - developing new products instead of just relying what made it great in the past. Change is hard - but if you want to solve great problems it is an great place to be. This is a place where you limit yourself - just jump in when you have an idea to help improve!

    Pros

    Excellent culture, laid-back, and very friendly.

    Cons

    Benefits are competitive but a bonus aspect would be desirable since the company no longer offers ESPP benefits after going private.

    Pros

    Awesome co-workers
    Solid product and install base
    used to be a dream now it's a nightmare

    Cons

    Thoma Bravo acquisition completely destroyed a wonderful diamond in the rough. It's all about profitability and the bottom line. The CEOs only clear vision seems to be systematically laying off good talent. The morale has gone from passionate dedication from employees across departments to constant fear of losing your job. Almost everyone that made this company pulse is gone or on their way out.

    They are starting to write fake Glassdoor reviews which are obviously not authentic.

    Advice to Management

    Change for the sake of change isn't always a good thing. It would be nice to listen to the people that know the industry instead of steering a ship Blindly. Trying to force a culture that doesn't work for customers or employees will only leave you shipwreck

    Pros

    Generally good office environment, cool office space, good rapport amongst ground level employees

    Cons

    Lacking direction, compensation is not market competitive, morale is low due to acquisition and layoffs, good people leaving, unclear direction or strategy

    Advice to Management

    Communicate some form of strategy, your losing good people either because they are leaving on their own or you are laying them off, management disconnected from reality and what's really going on at the bottom and middle management layer, not enough staff and resources, people working too many hours

    a Paycheck every pay day

    Cons

    This company is the worst company I have ever worked for. Its all about who you know and not your job performance. If you know someone, you get promoted. This place sucks!!

    Advice to Management

    Wake up before you run this company in the ground.
