    Pros

    I've worked at a variety of tech companies and agencies and I have to say that Invoca is a special place. We do our best work, trust each other, and everyone understands and is working collectively toward the company goals.

    But above all, employees feel supported by their peers, managers, and the leadership team. This means we can push ourselves without being fearful, speak up or stay quiet without being judged, and celebrate our successes with pure joy and appreciation for each other.

    It's unique for a high performing software company to have this kind of culture and while it has always been part of Invoca's DNA in some way, it has definitely flourished under the leadership of our CEO, Gregg Johnson.

    Cons

    We are growing and expanding in Denver and SF, so there's still work to do to ensure these other offices are on the same "level" as HQ in Santa Barbara.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being transparent with employees about strategic priorities and company performance. Continue the focus on people and strengthening the unique culture we have.

    Pros

    Amazing culture and people. The environment is extremely collaborative where everyone is supportive in the mission. That comes from the top and down through the organization. Best company culture I have ever been a part of. Fast paced environment where your ideas and opinion count. Leadership is engaged and supportive while continuing to drive learnings and career development. Great to be surrounded by extremely bright and educated colleagues who support you along the way.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. Don't lose sight of all of your hard work to get to this point. Love the transparency, vision, and mission.

    Pros

    The team I work with is amazing. Honestly, Invoca does a great job hiring, because everyone here is extremely helpful, communicative and inclusive- it truly is a TEAM effort. Not only that, but each individual is given a chance to shine and truly showcase their skills - it makes for an open career path, as you are able to refine your professional skills and present to C-level teams. And because of the fast-paced environment and fast growing company, you truly don't know where you'll be in 6 months.

    Cons

    We're currently growing at an extremely fast rate, so you need to be ready to pivot at a moments notice. If you aren't used to this & need more structure, this probably isn't the job for you.
    We're also a group of very hard working individuals that are all passionately focused on the same business goal, so we may not have the best work/life balance, but honestly no one complains because we enjoy the company so much.

    Advice to Management

    Keep ensuring you are pushing the message to have a good work/life balance. I think we touch on it sometimes, but it's always a nice reminder.

    Pros

    As a newer developer Invoca was a great place to hone my skills.

    Cons

    Some of the technical debt of the company was very bad while I was there. Hopefully it has improved since I'v left.
