    I worked at Invoca full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    An employee-focused culture with an incredibly talented and passionate team make Invoca a very special place to work. The marketing technology product they offer is a game-changer for marketers and the company overall has a very bright future ahead if the current leadership can continue to deliver.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, there are certainly some growing pains as the teams learn to scale, but overall the company is investing in the right parts of the business and most importantly, investing in their people.

    I have been working at Invoca full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    One of the most important things that has always stood out to me since joining Invoca is the values the company has that align with how I live my life. Invoca allows for the flexibility I need to be successfully both personally and professionally. I work with people who I consider to be my friends, to solve problems for our customers by working on difficult but exciting problems!

    Cons

    Invoca is undergoing a lot of growth. As expected, that comes with growing pains which takes some figuring out in areas like salary banding, projecting head count, etc. That said, the majority of this pain is often absorbed by the right people, making it (hopefully) transparent to the majority.

    I have been working at Invoca full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Invoca is a company that attracts great people. And that's hard to find. I've had tech jobs where the egos and workaholic mentalities take over and create a cycle of stress. That doesn't fly at Invoca! - I've been given many growth opportunities, and have put more on my resume in six months than I did in the two years previous. But, I don't feel overwhelmed, and I can be very open with my team if I need to pass on a project or need a deadline extension. - I work out of the SF office, and it's the perfect opposite of so many jobs here in the city. I don't have to put in crazy hours like so many of my peers at other tech companies, and there isn't that environment of fire-drilling. It's a great place to work for someone looking to come in to a positive workplace, do work they care about, and still get to go home and have a life. - Invoca is currently making employee feedback and needs a huge priority. By hiring a new VP of People and Culture, and providing resources to that whole team, positive changes are already being made.

    Cons

    - I am in a remote office (SF), but still feel connected to my team. I do know that isn't always the case for every remote employee at the company. I know things are in the works to improve that. - This may be a con for some job-searchers: I you're looking for a flashy Silicon Valley company with unlimited free breakfast/lunch/dinner/happy hours/massages/personal trainers/sleeping pods — Invoca isn't that. We do have a great snack selection, and a constant supply of the infamous La Croix that techies can't seem to go without, but the company doesn't spend frivolously.
