    I have been working at Envisage Information Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Options to work remotely, there are a couple great people there still. Hours are somewhat flexible, sometimes this is detrimental though.

    Cons

    Deterioration of general leadership due to most of the senior leadership team having left the company. Generally immature place to work at.

    Advice to Management

    Maturity is hard to acquire, I'm not sure there is anything that can be done. Most people are in positions they are not ready for, due to general personnel loss.

    I worked at Envisage Information Systems full-time

    Pros

    Coworkers are friendly and great to work with

    Cons

    Senior leadership has terrible communication. Told us that everything was going well until all of a sudden large groups of employees are being laid off without warning.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lie about the status of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make the Care & Feeding process more involved for employees who don't feel like they're gaining proficiency fast enough.

    Management improved a lot when in early 2016 the founder and former CEO exited the firm.

    "Once A Great Place To Work"

    I worked at Envisage Information Systems full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Ability to work from home. Flex hours. Satisfactory pay and benefits. Some really great people. A lot of knowledge from which to learn. Interesting projects. Interesting software design and architecture. Several offices in the region from which to work.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement. No benefit to working hard and long hours vs those who did not. Was once a great place to work. The company was bought out by a former client and things went downhill for employees. Poor business decisions led to loss of sales which led to several rounds of layoffs. It's not a safe place to work right now.

    Advice to Management

    Diversify product offerings within your area of specialty (too many eggs in too few baskets). Get rid of the flat organizational structure. You need to have people in positions of accountability and employees need to have a source of guidance, someone leading the way for them. Reward those employees who give extra time and effort.

    Pros

    Culture is very nice. People are very open and honest. No hierarchy to worry about. Ideas are heard and valued.

    Cons

    Driven by one major client whose values do not align with the companies. Communication from management is not clear even though they try to share it seems like they don't listen to the questions. Compensation is not aligned with the type of work or positions.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be better listeners. Don't commit to something that seems difficult to achieve.
