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

    Pros

    * Great culture with a lot of fun people. * Fully remote * Relaxed environment * Fun perks such as a monthly Bonusly budget, a lot of holidays, half day Fridays, monthly coffee budget, etc.

    Cons

    * Massive tech debt that's stalling growth with no real plans to fix the issues. * A lot of the code is poorly written and hard to maintain. * No consistency across code bases. For instance, there's a lot of duplicated code that's just copy/pasted all over. A bug in the copied code will be fixed in one place but left in the 3-4+ other places. * Teams feel very silo'd and weren't working together to solve problems that spanned the larger organization. * Inexperienced engineers in high positions making poor decisions. Junior engineers (senior and lower) aren't taken seriously and their voices not heard. * A lot of the management, including directors and higher, seem very lost and inexperienced as well. * Promotions feel like they're based on who's been there longer or who has the most to say, whether or not they know what they're talking about. InVision isn't necessarily a bad company to work for. They just have a lot of inexperienced people in positions of power and they're making a lot of poor decisions that are negatively affecting the future of the company. I felt like my career had stagnated for most of my time at InVision and I needed to get out to actually make use of my engineering skills and keep growing. I do miss most of the perks I listed but not at the cost of my career growth.

    I worked at InVision full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Being remote offers great flexibility and freedom in your life. Good benefits, but only if you're based in the US. Some really amazing people.

    Cons

    Leadership keeps changing way too quickly, there were 5 reorgs in the past year within marketing alone, each removing talented, long time employees left and right with no proper explanation. Many people were laid off from one day to another without any notice and were given less than 24hrs to "pack up and leave" with no time to say good bye. They fire someone and then make them a fall person for everything that went wrong so that they don't have to admit it's their fault - happened in product, sales, marketing, engineering... you name it. Strategy changes every quarter, decisions are made last minute and then you have to scramble to deliver only to be told that it's no longer a priority a few weeks/months later. People who are new don't care about anything that's been done before them and make uninformed decisions with no regard to what seasoned team members say. They solve it by getting rid of them. The company does not value their employees and you won't be given any opportunities to grow. It's been mentioned here a couple of times - unless you're a friend of someone in leadership, or you suck up to the right people, you're not getting promoted or even recognised for your hard work. Your boss might, but not you. Once a great company that people were proud to work for is now falling apart, living by empty cultural values that leadership loves to throw around but doesn't actually follow.

    Pros

    InVision is uniquely positioned with customers who love it, a strong product roadmap aligned with customer needs, and well capitalized. The company culture is one of the best I've ever worked in. Being fully remote allows for hiring amazing people wherever they want to live.

    Cons

    Some uncertainty. Feels like a make or break year for the company. Salaries are based on your location, so you might make less even if you provide the same value as your peer who lives in a more competitive employment market.
