    I have been working at InVision full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    As a 100% virtual company, InVision is creating the model for a way of working that will be much more the norm in the future. And, while the virtual working model is part of what makes InVision special, it is only part of the whole picture. Like any high-growth, successful start-up we work hard but it really feels like any person who is giving it their best effort is leaving a serious mark on the company and can say...

    Cons

    Like many start-ups, there are growing pains. Sometimes those things can be a minor irritant, but at least I feel like I can tell someone about it and they will want to make it better and help make sure I'm okay. I have also seen active improvements being made to employee raised issues in the year that I've been here. Our perks and benefits keep getting improved (and they're as good as most great tech employers already),...

    Advice to Management

    - Keep making it a safe environment to ask questions - Keep the top down communication happening - Continue to invest in developing the people that are here. Many of us are willing to work our butts off to stay as the performance bar gets higher

    I have been working at InVision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Truly feel as though I am part of something dynamic and innovative. This is the first role I have had that has been 100% remote and InVision has made it so much easier to get acclimated. The work/life balance is great and I feel valued on a daily basis. There are also excellent and competitive perks/benefits.

    Cons

    There have been some typical growing pains but it's a good problem to have! The organization is hiring smart, talented individuals and we're growing rapidly.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. It is clear employees are being heard and valued. Continue being transparent. The last few all company meetings have been great!

    I have been working at InVision full-time

    Pros

    I am so proud to call InVision home. We have amazing products and people! Below are a few reasons I believe make Invision different than any other company. People- We all take our co-ownership very seriously and I have been able to work with some of the smartest industry leaders around. Being a fully distributed workforce allows us to work with others that you may have never had the opportunity to meet in a “traditional”...

    Cons

    Traditional growing pains that companies have in growth mode As a leader, being able to understand effective, efficient and meaningful communication models in a fully distributed workforce can be challenging at times

    Advice to Management

    Continue being humble leaders. It’s refreshing and needed in an environment that is fast paced and ever changing.

    I have been working at InVision full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    The team is absolutely phenomenal. I'm working with some of the most talented people in the world (literally, since we can hire the best talent on earth as a fully distributed company). I've been with the company for nearly 4 years, and seeing us grow from 50 employees when I interviewed to 800+ employees worldwide in that short period of time has been nothing short of breathtaking. We have maintained an exceptional company...

    Cons

    There is always room for growth, regardless of how fantastic a workplace is. I'd say one area for improvement would be defining clear cut career ladder paths. Having grown this rapidly, it was a bit impossible to define them up to this point, but going forward I think it will be important.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. InVision is an absolutely incredible place to work, and I can't wait to see what our future holds!

    Pros

    Fully remote/better worklife integration Great coworkers Good benefits/perks Lots of variety in the work

    Cons

    If youre anything below director level, you might as well be an intern. Take your assignments/marching order and move out of the way so the important people can steer the ship. New management every 6 months, meaning you can never promote/grow b/c the new core team will hire their friends to come execute new grand plans. The insider group does not care about you at all, youre just a number and you can be replaced but they...

    I have been working at InVision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Autonomy, opportunity for growth, encouraging team and leadership, and a fully remote and distributed team. And the flexibility to be a real human, I'm a parent and often have to feed someone, take someone to the doctor or step in when childcare falls through. It's an incredible feeling to be able to do impactful work while being available and present with my family.

    Cons

    Figuring out how to work fully remote and distributed around the globe. Learning to leave the house and talk to others in real life!

    Advice to Management

    Be transparent and over communicating what's going on is a best practice given how the company runs.

    I worked at InVision full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I worked with interesting, knowledgeable, kind people, and a couple of fantastic managers. All of the engineers are senior-level, so I had access to a lot of expertise. The company structure is divided into teams with a manager, a product manager, and about six engineers who work closely together. Interactions between teams are mostly mediated by API boundaries between micro services which allowed a lot of autonomy for...

    Cons

    Due to some reorganization in 2017 I was shuffled between three teams with three different managers in the space of eight months. My first manager was fantastic. But later I had a manager who did not have much experience working with engineers. That coincided with a time when there was pressure from upper management to get some work down on a short timeline. IMO one of a manager's most important jobs is managing upstream...

    Show More

    Advice to Management

    I was in a position where my team was told by upper management to implement a large set of changes on a timeline that I think was not realistic, with goals that were not super clearly defined. My experience at InVision was not all like this, but the months that were were tough. Please make an effort to get your engineers to tell you how long the work will really take, and base product timelines on that instead of the...

    I worked at InVision full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    - Some teams are very close and great to work on. - Management WANTS to do better re: transparency, communication, etc. - Benefits and perks are great.

    Cons

    The usual drawbacks that come from working at a fast-moving, high value, fully remote company: change is a daily thing, priorities and deadlines are moving targets, communication can be a struggle. Beware new managers who want to make a name for themselves at whatever cost.

    Advice to Management

    Be even more open and communicative. Be clear about regular evaluations and their possible effect on an employee's status. Do more than promote diversity in hires, particularly managers and above; actually HIRE more diverse candidates.
