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

    Pros

    Instructure has an amazing culture and truly cares about the employees work/life balance. We are so fortunate to get 100% full paid medical benefits, equity, ESPP, lots of free food and being surrounded by amazing people...Just to name a few.

    Cons

    No real cons that I have faced

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and continue to help employees learn and grow in their role to make them exceptional at what they do

    I worked at Instructure full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great pay, benefits, and unlimited PTO
    - Fully stacked kitchen and weekly company lunch
    - Open environment
    - CEO keeps an open conversation and you feel like you're truly apart of something

    Cons

    - Management tends to favor new hires for positions over promoting within
    - When given the chance to be promoted, salary is lower than new hires for the same position
    - This company has a lot of layers of management to report too

    Advice to Management

    Value those current employees seeking other positions within the company. They have already bought into the company culture and goals and would make the transition easier.

    I have been working at Instructure full-time

    Pros

    Work life balance is amazing. I feel that I'm always learning, growing as a person and in my career. I love being surrounded by so many smart and motivated individuals.

    Cons

    You might gain weight if you eat all the free food. Because the company is growing at such a fast rate I feel like sometimes I take on more projects than normally would given to one person. We can't seem to hire fast enough.

    I have been working at Instructure full-time

    Pros

    Your coworkers are greater, free food, great view. You will learn really cool tech stuff.

    Cons

    I work in support. A year ago I would have told you that I love my job. I get to learn new things continuously, but now Support has become so big that Supervisors (at least mine) don't have time for you (or they don't care about me). I liked having one on one with the sup. It used to give me an idea where I stand. Now I have to be lucky to get my supervisor at a good time. I had 3 one on one in the last seven months. I have to remind him of what we were talking about, and he does not follow up! It is uncomfortable asking for 1 on 1. We don't have a yearly review, but they tell me I am doing great. Yet I am stuck in the same place? I feel like the only way to get promoted is to be around the management. That is difficult to do if you work different schedules from them. Hard work is not enough. Everyone is overworked and tired; I dread going to work during fall and spring.

    They will bring you food during busy times. But you will be taking back to back calls or 6 chats at some time, so good luck eating.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to know your employees and follow up with them about their concerns.
