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

    Pros

    Despite being a remote company, the culture is particularly strong and inclusive. InVision is scaling fast and there is always a lot to get done but you have a sense that your role is important and you're part of a team. Joining InVision is a unique experience to get better at your job and learn how to work remotely effectively, something that will be invaluable in years to come.

    Cons

    If you're not prepared to be flexible or looking to be challenged then this isn't the right place for you. Businesses at this stage don't suit everyone but it's a really supportive place to learn if you show up with the right attitude.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening and putting the effort into retaining our culture.

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

    Pros

    Honestly can't really think of anything good to say about this company.

    Cons

    Micromanagement dressed up as remote working. Woeful leadership. Terrible culture. Avoid at all costs.

    Pros

    - 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

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

    Pros

    I started with InVision earlier this year, and when I did, I was sceptical, working from home as an extrovert was hard, onboarding was very stretched to get me started. The accounts were a little scattered, and people that I joined with were trying to find their feet as Europe was a new venture, move forward seven months, and I must say, what a fantastic company to work! The company has managed to hire some of the...

    Cons

    As we grow out EMEA, there are natural growing pains, but nothing a startup in a new space doesn't go through. My advice if you are thinking of working for InVision is, if you are someone who can't work from home, or have a hard time dealing without human interaction, InVision is not for you. Although the company never forces you, you will find yourself working long hours, but this is because you will find yourself...

    Advice to Management

    Keep going! As the company is in a hyper-growth stage, clarify vision and why we do what we do (Simon Sinek methodology) and define what the culture of the business is through set values. Keep hiring great people and make sure that the work from home culture stays forever!

    I have been working at InVision

    Pros

    InVision is a team of the smartest, most enthusiastic, friendliest people I've ever been involved with. The remote culture has been implemented in a way that sometimes you forget that you're hundreds of miles away from your colleagues. At InVision, I've developed professionally more than I could have imagined when I joined the company.

    Cons

    Not so much a con, but you need to be prepared for how demanding the startup world can be. You'll find yourself sucked in by your own desire to going way above and beyond the normal 9-5.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow the product and the wonderful team we've created.

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

    Pros

    The company atmosphere is tremendous, where else do you get a staff member who checks if you are happy and if not can do something about it? The flexibility of working at home with the free Starbucks card so you can work away from home too! The joining package (mug, T-shirt, stickers) is more than most, and has been supplemented with a hoodie too! All the work is appreciated and you know where you stand. A great company...

    Cons

    Outside the US you have to take care of your own benefits, and you can miss the personal interaction of working in an office.

    Advice to Management

    To keep doing the same thing and caring about the product and the staff in equal measure, it is a winning combination, while management cares the employees will care too.

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

    Pros

    Where do I start!? A little about - I've been with InVision for over a year and I have to be honest here: It's the best place to be right now. I'm not going anywhere. I'll stay until they kick me out. People = smartest you've ever worked with - Working with smart people makes life a lot, lot easier. Right guidance, management and input received from my teams has allowed me to produce the best work of my career....

    Cons

    No cons but there is this - I love my colleagues, but as we're all around the world I don't get to see them as much. It does make it that much better though when we do all meet — we meet up as much as possible, and when we do it is *always* such a blast!

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing what you're doing <3

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

    Pros

    - Smartest team I've ever worked with - 100% distributed. Since there's not a central office, you don't feel like an outsider working from home / remote. - Flexible hours - Flexible vacation time - Very approachable executive team - Awesome perks (unlimited books, starbucks, gym membership, etc.) - Great product. Very big buzz in the design industry. Constantly innovating. - Huge growth (and still growing) - Great...

    Cons

    - Sometimes miss in-person interactions. Although as the team is growing, there is more of us working in local areas to each other. - Easy to get caught up in the excitement and work long hours

    - half day fridays - tech stack is modern - decent benefits except 401k match

    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...
