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

    Pros

    Typical remote tech pluses: Flexible schedule, work from anywhere with WiFi, unlimited vacation, etc. Plus a well-known name that looks great (for now) on a resume. If you can put aside the stress and chaos, there's a good amount of work-life balance.

    Cons

    Leadership is just unbelievably bad. There is no strategy coming down from the top. The marketing department has so many different activities going at any given time that all of it comes out a little half baked. From a work standpoint, goals aren't clear, campaign performance isn't clear, what success looks like isn't clear. From a career standpoint, there is no career path, no clear idea of how to get promoted (or sometimes...

    Advice to Management

    Develop strategy at the top and work with the channel owners to flesh it out and implement it down. Stop promoting and hiring high-performing ICs as leaders and instead hire leaders to lead.

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

    Pros

    Fully remote, easy to interview for next job, people are generally nice

    Cons

    Awkward "pledge of allegiance" at IRL, compensation is low, remote work requires heavy documentation, might be too large of a company for fully remote, animosity between sales and product because of under-delivering, required to create too many videos (waste of time) rather than effective real time communications

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

    Pros

    InVision is a great product, the sales and marketing people are talented and easy to work with, you can see they are passionate about what they do. Remote working is a great perk. Nice perks like Bonus.ly (giving bonuses to colleagues) and really great SWAG and good brand name in the Design space.

    Cons

    When I joined the talent team it was really great- collaborative, with a good goal and strong team working and good managers in place. However, once we had new leaders join the team everything went downhill and it became a highly toxic environment. Imagine how bad it was that you could even feel this toxicity in an ENTIRELY remote company... Collaboration was not encouraged, certain members of the team were not...

    Advice to Management

    Hire actual leaders into the HR and People team. Not authoritarian people who are only looking out for themselves.

    Pros

    Love working here. Lots to learn. Great impactful opportunities. Leaders are attentive and care

    Cons

    You need to be comfortable working remotely (home/coffee shop/wework) as we don't have office space

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

    Pros

    Lots talented, quality people here. High bar as InVision attracts top talent all over the world, so the co is full of self-motivated, high caliber folks. Autonomy to be creative/entrepreneurial. Exciting growth stage (see career-launching list by Wealthfront if relevant to your interests)

    Cons

    Remote is certainly for me, but it's not for everybody..self-awareness and proactivity is key to making this a successful setup. Definitely mid-stage growth co and not all processes are dialed in - pros and cons to this - def pro to me to be able to add value in material way, but not for everybody.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage new ideas and strategies rather than resting on what has worked in the past (explore and exploit). Continue to reward folks for stepping outside of their specific job description to explore new ways to add value. Continue to invest in strong culture and people's career interests. Keep long term thinking/vision, not racing for short term value extraction.

    I worked at InVision full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Although I worked in Finance, my job was to build relationships and work closely with leaders across the organization - including Sales, Marketing, Engineering, Product and Design - right up to the COO and (occasionally) the CEO. There has been a lot of change in the past 6 months - and really in the entire 2.5 years I was there - which is fairly common for a company growing so fast (it tripled in size during my tenure)....

    Cons

    Although I personally see it as a pro - since I loved it - the learning curve for getting used to a fully remote organization can be tricky. Managing an even bigger team at scale - as the company continues to grow - is going to put more pressure on this model but I have a feeling they are going to make it work.

    Advice to Management

    Look after your Finance team, they're the best!

    Pros

    - half day fridays - tech stack is modern - decent benefits except 401k match

    Cons

    signs of toxic management: - entire teams have been let go with zero communication from any level of management - some engineering managers are overly aggressive/abrasive and contribute heavily to task churn - constant talk of high attrition amongst rank and file engineers also present: - high amount of tech debt - design/architectural issues present in many teams contributing to brittle services - negative inter-team...

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

    Pros

    Was once a well known brand.

    Cons

    We are just a shadow of past selves. Unless we do something drastically different, we're going to continue to fail. Let me start off by saying that a remote environment doesn't work. At least not at this scale. Employees are just not as invested in the products, management can get away with murder, etc... Our customers don't care about Studio, the product that we've been working on for the last 3-4 years. They...

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

    Pros

    Half day fridays, decent parental leave, recognizable name in the industry

    Cons

    Where to begin? Management: Management will let go of teams when something goes wrong instead of putting some of the blame on themselves. Toxic environment. If you have a bad manager, your life will be miserable. You're working remote, on an island, and no one will hear your cries for help. Pay: Not only are you paid under market value, don't expect to get a decent pay raise for doing good work, only enough to...
