    I worked at Influitive full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Influitive truly lives and breathes by their mission and culture. I felt blessed to be able to work with people who are smart, ambitious and kind. I met many people who are now life long friends and the knowledge that I gained while on the team will continue to serve me for years to come.

    The management also truly cared about each member of the team and took our feedback to heart. Given that Influitive is a category creator/innovator, there are guaranteed to be growing pains along the way. However, I knew that the right leadership was in place to get us to where we needed to be. The pay, benefits and work perks were also best in class.

    Cons

    The head count was consistently low (I believe this was due to the fact that they are very selective with who they hire) and because of that, there is a lot of pressure to perform. This can lead to some stress at the end of quarter, so if you are looking for a role where you can breeze through the week then Influitive probably isn't a good fit for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to the team (both customers and employees) and truly internalizing their feedback! You have some truly talented people - keeping them happy and engaged with the vision should continue to be the #1 priority for the company.

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

    Pros

    - They care about you. This is a people-first company, and they can afford to be because they are so careful about who they bring in, and then shower them with trust and love.
    - Managers are empathetic, and really, genuinely prioritize helping me with my career goals!
    - Transparency within the company is great, and wherever there's an opportunity to improve, they take it. Your voice is heard.
    - Obviously it's a beautiful office space with catered lunch on Mondays and Fridays, snacks all week (including lots of breakfast food), hammocks, beer etc. But the genuine love and happiness in every single employee is the best part.

    Cons

    It's really hard to think of cons. I would say that I wish there was more window space for everybody and more common spaces with natural night if I'm being picky.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the amazing work, and keep listening to your employees! They have so much insight to give, and knowing that they are being heard is so motivating for them to keep making the company the best it can be.
