    I have been working at InVision full-time for more than 3 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!

    I have been working at InVision full-time (Less 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.

    Pros

    -Best work/life balance I've ever had professionally. This is due to 1) the culture and 2) instilling self-discipline on my own work:life ratio -Culture definitely embodies a drive towards constant growth and improvement. Knowing everyone is pushing to learn and grow helps me consistently elevate my game -High caliber of talent across all departments -Opportunities are endless if you're one to identify areas for...

    -We're growing quickly which brings steady change. If you lack resiliency and don't thrive in constant change InVision wouldn't be right for you. That said, if you love that 2 days never look the same this is a great opportunity -We've had some bumps historically in delivering product on time based on original target dates communicated. That's said, I've seen HUGE improvements here in the last 6 months and have complete...

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

    Pros

    Despite being a remote company, the culture is particularly strong and inclusive. InVision is scaling fast and there is always a lot to get done but you have a sense that your role is important and you're part of a team. Joining InVision is a unique experience to get better at your job and learn how to work remotely effectively, something that will be invaluable in years to come.

    Cons

    If you're not prepared to be flexible or looking to be challenged then this isn't the right place for you. Businesses at this stage don't suit everyone but it's a really supportive place to learn if you show up with the right attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and putting the effort into retaining our culture.

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

    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 worked at InVision full-time (Less 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...

    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 a year

    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.

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

    Pros

    once this was a exciting place to work, with fast growth. We had a good team of supportive people and we got the job done. Our team hired nearly 1000 people for Invision in a couple years.

    Cons

    As of this summer leadership changed on recruiting and it became a lying, backstabbing horrible place to work. new leaders have irrelevant and poor experience and treated the team like factory workers (who, shouldn't even be treated that way). the environment we once had was lost. additionally, the new leadership fired a third of the team the week of Christmas. Most of the team has now quit and found better, higher paying...
