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

    Pros

    Brilliant team, located all over Europe. Everyone is ambitious yet helpful, and the culture is great. Whilst it’s a fully remote company, you have access to wework in London and Amsterdam where there are a high number of employees which provides a nice balance to working from home. The SVP International setup the business in the US and is now doing the same in Europe. Great to have that experience and everyone on the...

    Cons

    Not for people that don’t enjoy working hard and building a business. Lots to do at InVision and you’re always required to go beyond your job description to get things done. I like this, but it’s not for everyone. Remote isn’t for everyone. There’s always a lot to do, and the expectations are very high. If you think fully remote means easy ride, you’re very mistaken. The business made a couple of poor early sales hires...

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you’re doing. Really appreciate the way we’re all treated like owners in the business and how supportive you are through challenges. Recent mgmt hires have made a BIG impact on morale.

    I worked at InVision full-time

    Pros

    They talk a good game. Endless rounds of funding which if you're intelligent you know is concerning how fast they burn through money... but they think they got it all figured out. Nice laptops!

    Cons

    Everything else. Another poster said it's like an abusive relationship, couldn't be more true. Horrible execs. CEO/COO who are 1000% inexperienced and making knee jerk, emotional decisions. How do investors not see this? No CTO or CFO! Think they're going to IPO without a CFO?! and a Software Co without a CTO? Joke. Their C- of HR doesn't seem to know HR and has made numerous comments in front of others where he and...

    Pros

    work from home. some good perks like free coffee.

    Cons

    everything else. comp. people culture they will work you until you end up in the hospital, this happened to several people on my former team. prepare to be on slack 7 days a week at all hours. no kidding. if you don't respond on a Sunday at 5pm you will be reprimanded. a lot of "testing" to see if people are working. no trust in the team they built. Leadership with NO experience at this level. Completely running...

    Pros

    Free starbucks card , good benefits, and working remotely.

    Cons

    You have to be very motivated to work from home. If you want to be micromanaged this isn't the company for you.

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

    Pros

    Working from home is the only pro.

    Cons

    Toxic management, and terrible culture. All management tracks and listens to your every call. That's their job. Not one manager gives a presentation or interacts with customers. Don't be fooled by their enchanting "work from home" set up. It's not worth it. Seriously, they record your every move.

    Advice to Management

    Middle management is awful. Find true leaders. Not friends of friends.

    - You feel like you are on a rocket-ship, the market opportunity is immense - you feel very empowered, employees are trusted to do what they need to do to be successful, there is no micromanagement from any level - Complete flexiblity, people work from home or remotely. I've travelled to Italy and Poland and worked from there so far. It's great to manage my own schedule and work according to my own energy levels and...

    Cons

    - Working from home gets some getting used to, you need to figure out the optimal times for you to work and ensure you don't feel isolated, so split up your routine by leaving the house, going to the gym, working from a cafe etc - You need to ensure you are proactive about communicating with others & set your own boundaries about - It's a scale- up and is changing often you need thrive in an entrepreneurial environment.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing

Besides a healthy professional environment , there is a good atmosphere with colleagues and everyone collaborates. Great product, awesome people...

    Cons

    Work from home requires quite some good habits, but when you know them it’s fine. Of course, the organic growth generated some problems with hiring last year and I experienced it myself but this has been addressed too. No major cons.

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

    Pros

    - Communication is a must due to fully remote workforce so everyone makes an extra effort to communicate. - We treat our employees great and in the US we have recently upgraded our benefits plans to be more family friendly. - I find it is easier for me (not everyone) to stay focused while working from home. My quick breaks of throwing in a load of laundry or running the dishwasher between meetings also helps me in...

    Cons

    - Sometimes it is hard (especially in the winter) to feel like you can get outside of your house and see some sunlight. The Cafe Card (coffee card) and gym membership helps though.

    Advice to Management

    - Make sure that on big, high level concepts it is clear who owns what. With the company growing so fast some things fall into the "I thought that was you" category!

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

    Pros

    I've been with InVision since we were ~200 employees, and have seen us more than double in 2 years. We've managed to scale in a way that's smart, we've continued to hold a high standard for hiring and build features and products that our customers need. We've recently brought on incredible new leaders who have made immediate impacts. Being part of a company whose clients are such huge champions is an amazing experience,...

    Cons

    Not everyone loves the work from home environment and you do need to make an effort to be visible to those you don't interact with daily. That being said, the opportunities to get involved are endless. I would also love to see more diversity (gender and racial) in leadership. With so much growth, you have to be comfortable with change.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to promote internally and acknowledge rockstars on the team. Cross-departmental interactions are really important to foster relationships.
