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

    Inconvénients

    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...

    Avantages

    Half day fridays, decent parental leave, recognizable name in the industry

    Inconvénients

    Where to begin? Management: Management will let go of teams when something goes wrong instead of putting some of the blame on themselves. Toxic environment. If you have a bad manager, your life will be miserable. You're working remote, on an island, and no one will hear your cries for help. Pay: Not only are you paid under market value, don't expect to get a decent pay raise for doing good work, only enough to...

    J'ai travaillé chez InVision à temps plein moins d'un an

    Avantages

    I worked with interesting, knowledgeable, kind people, and a couple of fantastic managers. All of the engineers are senior-level, so I had access to a lot of expertise. The company structure is divided into teams with a manager, a product manager, and about six engineers who work closely together. Interactions between teams are mostly mediated by API boundaries between micro services which allowed a lot of autonomy for...

    Inconvénients

    Due to some reorganization in 2017 I was shuffled between three teams with three different managers in the space of eight months. My first manager was fantastic. But later I had a manager who did not have much experience working with engineers. That coincided with a time when there was pressure from upper management to get some work down on a short timeline. IMO one of a manager's most important jobs is managing upstream...

    Conseils à la direction

    I was in a position where my team was told by upper management to implement a large set of changes on a timeline that I think was not realistic, with goals that were not super clearly defined. My experience at InVision was not all like this, but the months that were were tough. Please make an effort to get your engineers to tell you how long the work will really take, and base product timelines on that instead of the...

    Avantages

    #1 for most people is probably the flexibility of working remotely. After living and working in the SF bay area for two years, I was grateful for an opportunity to leave and still work with an A-class software company. #2 is that it's 100% remote, not just partially. A 100% remote company has lots of advantages over a partially remote one. 100% remote makes everyone feel like they're equally as informed as everyone...

    Inconvénients

    Only for some people: - The company tries to stick to US hours. I started with the company in the US and moved to Taiwan, so I ended up working all night long and sleeping half the day. This obviously doesn't apply if you're anywhere in the Americas.

    Avantages

    Fully distributed and remote culture Free coffee Nice laptops Some really good people

    Inconvénients

    The culture is toxic. Upper management has no idea how they are going to do all the things coming down. Constantly being berated for the mistakes of the upper management. Teams would constantly be at odds with each other. Communication is terrible. My priorities were changing weekly (no joke!) because someone decides that x is more important and needs to be done now and is communicating to the relevant stakeholders at...

    Avantages

    Challenging, exciting work on an industry-defining product. Very good engineering tools and deployment processes. Working remote is the best perk. Strong work/life balance; management is understanding of day-to-day family time and family leave.

    Inconvénients

    Little communication between teams -- but you can make an effort as an individual and it's welcomed. Roadmaps are sometimes unclear because we're in such a high growth phase.

    Conseils à la direction

    Clark and David are awesome, as is the engineering management. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Upper management can't be trusted. Inexperience leadership team.

    Conseils à la direction

    I was highly encouraged to give a good Glassdoor review but I can't hide the weird things happening at InVision, especially with upper management. I work in engineering and love working with my peers. However I'm not a fan of engineering upper management and there is severe trust issues. Engineering leadership's lack of experience is apparent - just look at their Linkedin profile. It's created an environment where...

    Avantages

    Small teams, interesting technical problems, passionate customers. Especially the small focused teams. When I talk to friends about what I'm doing, they are always envious of the cutting edge tech we're using. I love the long-term vision: I like being part of what's going to be a big success (or should I say: an even bigger success because it's already amazingly successful).

    Inconvénients

    Working 100% remotely is a powerful plus but the downside is it's harder to have a sense of "belonging". Also, like many growth startups, working out of the tech debt and that's never fun.

    Avantages

    Committed to remote work. There are no offices, the entire company is remote and global. Lots of opportunity to work with smart people from all over the world. Work-life balance can be good, or it can be horrible depending whether or not you are working on something that has the CEOs attention.

    Inconvénients

    CEO is a sociopath and much of the executive staff are sycophants. Occasionally there are good managers and executives that cycle through, but they never last more than 6mo or so. The CEO runs this company, no dissent is allowed. Priorities change on a daily basis. There is no respect for any kind of project management or prioritization. I have seen co-workers stressed out because the CEO has called them late in the...
