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

    Pros

    * Friendly, smart, and social group of people
    * Casual work environment
    * Free breakfast and snacks

    Cons

    *Total lack of product direction. Involver should have picked one area to focus on and become a leader in that area. Instead, they ended up taking on random projects and partnerships and being mediocre in a bunch of areas. They really stopped being innovative with new additions to the platform that competitors didn't have about 2 years ago. Far too many 1-off custom projects are taken on that take up a lot of resources but don't improve the platform at all.

    *Lack of communication between sales, engineering, and product teams. The product roadmap was always changing and teams were kept in the dark about changes to it until after the fact. This lack of transparency was definitely bad for morale and hurt the overall work environment as there was a lot of bickering between teams.

    * Seems to have plateaued with both technology and revenue while other competitors in the space have excelled and recently been acquired.

    Advice to Management

    Create more transparency between the product, engineering, and sales teams so everyone is on the same page in regards to the direction of the company.

    Figure out what your focus is going to be and then put a lot of resources into that while not taking on random 1-off custom projects that distract the company from improving the platform.
