    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 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...

    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

      Pros

      There are some wonderful and solid people. Remote working. Clark, founder, is a good person from what I can tell. Well known brand.

      Cons

      Under the guise of “this is an agile and brave enough to show the bad version kind of company”: it’s really a shitshow. There is constant re-pivoting of roadmap, packaging and pricing and staff. You get your legs under you and then it all blows up or you’re told to do something else. The culture in almost every department is very much a boys club. In client side you’ll find lots of bro-ish joking and all male leadership....

      Advice to Management

      Collect much more feedback in an environment where people can be transparent. Get super clear on 3 important things you want to do this year and get everyone aligned on just those and do them. Make one of them overhauling information management and distribution.

      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...

      Fully remote/better worklife integration Great coworkers Good benefits/perks Lots of variety in the work

      Cons

      If youre anything below director level, you might as well be an intern. Take your assignments/marching order and move out of the way so the important people can steer the ship. New management every 6 months, meaning you can never promote/grow b/c the new core team will hire their friends to come execute new grand plans. The insider group does not care about you at all, youre just a number and you can be replaced but they...

      Pros

      Truly feel as though I am part of something dynamic and innovative. This is the first role I have had that has been 100% remote and InVision has made it so much easier to get acclimated. The work/life balance is great and I feel valued on a daily basis. There are also excellent and competitive perks/benefits.

      Cons

      There have been some typical growing pains but it's a good problem to have! The organization is hiring smart, talented individuals and we're growing rapidly.

      Advice to Management

      Keep up the great work. It is clear employees are being heard and valued. Continue being transparent. The last few all company meetings have been great!
