    I have been working at InVision App full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working at InVision is a privilege. The people are talented, intelligent, fun to work with and know how to get things done. No project is too big or ambitious. Resources are supplied to get great ideas off of the ground. The flexibility of working remotely is a huge bonus. Opportunities for growth are given to those that show ambition and deliver results. I can't recommend working here enough.

    Cons

    Onboarding could be standardized and use some improvement. The company is constantly growing (which is positive), but it inevitably leads to constantly evolving processes/structure which can be difficult to keep up with at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep putting belief in employees that deliver results. Keep pursuing the challenging ideas that no one else will.

    I have been working at InVision App full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I started with InVision earlier this year, and when I did, I was sceptical, working from home as an extrovert was hard, onboarding was very stretched to get me started. The accounts were a little scattered, and people that I joined with were trying to find their feet as Europe was a new venture, move forward seven months, and I must say, what a fantastic company to work!

    The company has managed to hire some of the best talented, humble and smartest people I have ever worked with. Everyone is innovating new ways to work and develop the business, and the hiring process makes sure that everyone that comes in, is the right fit for them and InVision.

    I have the luxury to work at home, in a Starbucks, in the London WeWork, anywhere I feel comfortable, any place I feel comfortable. As a father, I can see my children grow up as I do not have the travel time to an office to battle with because of the work from home culture!

    The perks are fantastic too, which include but are not limited to:
    Free Starbucks EVERY DAY
    Free Books from Amazon (convenient)
    Linkedin Learning (excellent for learning new skills)
    Shares in the company (I feel like I own a bit of it too)
    Unlimited holidays (yes that is correct)
    Gym Membership

    The product is fantastic, I would in a customer facing role, and I have never sold a product where EVERYONE likes it.

    I would highly recommend the company as it is going places.

    Cons

    As we grow out EMEA, there are natural growing pains, but nothing a startup in a new space doesn't go through.

    My advice if you are thinking of working for InVision is, if you are someone who can't work from home, or have a hard time dealing without human interaction, InVision is not for you. Although the company never forces you, you will find yourself working long hours, but this is because you will find yourself exploring new avenues and projects as there are opportunities to progress and be involved with the companies growth is everywhere.

    Advice to Management

    Keep going! As the company is in a hyper-growth stage, clarify vision and why we do what we do (Simon Sinek methodology) and define what the culture of the business is through set values. Keep hiring great people and make sure that the work from home culture stays forever!

    Pros

    Working at InVIsion was by far the most important step I could have ever taken in my career. The company grew from this little startup to one of the most recognizable brands in the startup world, and especially the design community. Saying that users love the product and the company would be an understatement.

    The company moves at an incredibly fast rate, projects can go from a conversation to reality in just a few days or less. This is normally a pretty difficult feat at most companies, but InVision, under the direction of the CEO, has really brought together a group of world class individuals.

    From engineering to design, sales, and marketing, everyone is incredibly driven to get the job done. The company and it’s crazy awesome product is what really attracts you to work there, but it’s the people that make all the difference. I can really say I’ve made lifelong friends over the course of my time at InVision, and thats not a culture I’ve experienced at other companies I’ve worked at.

    The CEO is a true visionary, a kind, heartfelt guy who will straight up called me during the middle of a work day, even with his busy schedule, if there was something I wanted to talk about strategically, or just get off my chest.

    He has really created a strong culture that makes your co-workers feel like family, with strong support to always do your best work coming from all sides. InVision is really a place where anyone, from top to bottom, has their opinion heard and can be a big part in taking the company to the next level.

    Cons

    None, loved every second of it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Wish we could get together more often since we are remote - but when we do get together it's the best!

    Keep up the good work and the company wide meetings! It's great that we are in the know!

    I have been working at InVision App full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Impressive team of top notch people across all areas of the business, with a seasoned leadership team steering the ship.

    Tackling an ambitious vision to transform the way companies produce digital products and run their design departments.

    Amazingly positive workplace culture. Everyone is incredibly friendly, helpful and ready to pitch in. (True story: when one employee’s house burned town, the team raised tens of thousands of dollars in a matter of hours to help the employee’s family).

    Remote workplace brings unparalleled flexibility. Tools like Slack and Zoom make it easy to adapt to remote-work and connect with colleagues. Until I worked for InVision, I never realized how great it is to have NO commute.

    Cons

    Rapid growth breeds some growing pains that are common in many startups. Communication could be better across departments, new employee on-boarding can be challenging, and information and projects are distributed across many tools. Luckily, internal initiatives are being discussed to address these areas already.

    Advice to Management

    Keep promoting the mission & vision. Keep the team laser focused on the goals at hand and remove distractions wherever possible. Keep highlighting and praising the culture of iteration and improvement that has made this such a special place to work.

    I worked at InVision App full-time

    Pros

    The company has a remarkable brand and loads of potential, but it is a mess inside. It is an open-ended question whether it can deliver solid product and achieve the market dominance the company aspires to. Many feel that the answer is no.

    Cons

    Leadership is terrible. They sew chaos with constant, ill-considered shifts in strategy and roadmap. There is constant churn and frustration. Lack of transparency and communication is the norm. Very little has shipped in last 2 years. There are a few critical reviews here, PAY ATTENTION to them.

    Troubling lack of diversity on product team.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up, embrace honesty.

    I have been working at InVision App full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    This company is full of the most talented, humble and hard working people that I have ever had the privilege to be around. No matter how much we grow in size, InVision still feels very much like the company I started working for almost 3 years ago (when it was a fraction of the size). It's a contagious place to work at. You're always inspired by the work others do and are consistently pushed (positively) to do your best work. Everyone at InVision works hard but they play hard too. People care about one another and the company does too. The best thing... is it's only getting better!

    Cons

    I honestly don't know of any down-sides here. If you're able to work in a remote company, be a self-starter, adapt to change (in a growing start-up), you'll do great! If you struggle with working in an environment that's consistently growing and need to be in an office setting to feel 'connected', you may find it tough at first.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! The recent changes in visibility across teams have been great!

    I have been working at InVision App full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We have a ton of perks, that's for sure, but that's really not why I like working here. I love the fact that people are encouraged to explore and improve constantly, people are treated fairly, leadership cares about you as a person, and yes, the working from home aspect really does put the final nail in the coffin. I've been able to shift and grow here in a way that you don't find at many other jobs. It's fantastic.

    Cons

    Although we're outgrowing the "startup" size and definition, we still operate like a startup in a lot of ways. This can really not jive with people who want to just make a decision and stick with it. If you can't go with the flow and aren't willing to be flexible, this is probably not the environment for you. (i.e. you've been working at a thousands-strong company and love the way that operates) Also, you might not like working from home if you need more face to face interaction during the day, but I'm also surprised by the depth of the relationships I've formed with people I've never met in real life—just talking over Slack and video chat.

    Advice to Management

    Speak more to the "why" behind what we're doing. Give the team something real to rally around, even if that "why" changes every 6 months.

    I have been working at InVision App full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you are a self-starting, self-directed worker, the all-remote, work-anywhere structure is a dream come true. Work where you are. It's refreshing to be at a company that is really trying to experiment with the future of the workplace in a meaningful and systematic way.

    The product is incredible, and aggressive/visionary product development is ongoing. No resting on laurels here!

    Employees are welcoming, friendly, and apolitical. Everyone is trying to get things done.

    Cons

    If you struggle with being remote, it probably won't be your cup of tea. As a rapidly growing software startup, all of the normal stresses and strains are present. Things move fast, and you work hard. Systems are being built in earnest across the company. Nothing atypical for a rocket-ship startup, but, again, not everyone's jam.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the devotion to the product and customer experience. Keep up the devotion to doing right by employees. Everything else will follow.
