    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Maybe make the sync-up spotlights optional but encouraged because not everyone likes public speaking

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

    Pros

    Influitive invests in your career development and believes from hiring from within (in most departments). They are open to employees exploring different opportunities within the company so that they are able to find the job where they are the most impactful.

    Great people - humble and friendly. A lot of recognition of people doing great things.

    Good work-life balance. Get your work done and show determination and your managers / leaders won't be hovering over you about when you're getting in the office and time off.

    Cons

    Most people feel a little unsettled or unconfident about the future success of the company because of the layoffs and restructuring that has happened over the past couple years.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to try and be realistic and honest with employees about the future success of the company.

    Work hard to keep the good employees and make them happy.

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

    Pros

    Can't speak for the entire company but I have an amazing manager who's invested in my growth, with monthly 1:1s specific to this and setting up key milestones to ensure that I'm hitting my goals and challenging myself to grow.

    To complement this, there's an education budget for everyone, along with personalized learning and development plans (and manager training for new people managers).

    Some other perks like catered lunches, stocked fridge, ping pong, VR, monthly socials, unlimited vacation, etc. but it's the first point that really keeps me here - people who trust and empower you to learn and grow beyond your normal means.

    Cons

    You can say 'organized chaos' isn't for everyone but it's definitely an environment that I enjoy and thrive in. Not for those who want to coast since there's still much to be done to bring our vision to life (I'm biased since driven people tend to drive me too).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people!

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

    Pros

    I feel lucky to work here and am constantly learning and growing in this role, which is what I was looking for when pursuing a new role. Here's a few of the things I appreciate:

    Transparency

    Our management team is dedicated to transparency, and I feel that they are more open with us than most other companies. Through various channels and methods including Slack, an internal newsletter, daily sync ups, and quarterly town halls, I feel that there is a significant effort made to support, informing, and driving company engagement and transparency to ensure we're all moving in the right direction together.

    Accountability

    Through the different channels we use for communication, we hold ourselves accountable through targets which connects back to the transparency portion. The management teams and departments provide updates to help drive cross-departmental communication and updates which is something I really appreciate

    Goal Oriented

    As individuals, teams, and as a company, we are all working towards goals that are clearly communicated and shared. I know what I'm working towards, my boss is effective in sharing existing, updated ones, and new goals, and our management team is consistently sharing updates, tips, and resources on how we can all work towards them,

    Cons

    This company is not for the laid-back types. Our HR team does a good job in finding driven and motivated individuals for the role, but even still there is a lot of work to be done. Management is very supportive in helping teams find a good balance that works for them to help offset some of the workloads.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!
