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

    Pros

    - remote work, skilled colleagues, entrepreneurial attitude in sales, good local managers that protect their teams from poor management decisions coming out of the C-Suite as good as they can, pay is ok. In Sales you can climb the ranks quickly but thats because so many people are leaving and they need to fill the gaps.

    Cons

    - CEO clearly not capable of running a company of this size - Product has not improved AT ALL in 3 years -> Enterprise customers churn left and right and competitors are eating us alive - Sales quota has products baked into it that have not yet shipped (and probably never will) - Ill-conceived freemium model means that some large companies are paying peanuts for the tool (bad for sales people) - Flip-flopping all over strategic decisions - burning through money fast

    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.

    April 10, 2019SVP, International

    We're sorry to hear that your time at InVision was not successful, but we do appreciate the feedback - we're always looking at ways to improve our company. As you know, InVision is going through a time of major growth. While this is a tremendously exciting time to be involved with the company, we recognize that continuing to scale at this pace has it's challenges and this stage is not the right fit for everyone. We have ambitious goals as we strive to create a category, and we honestly haven't figured it all out. That's part of the opportunity for people joining, to help us learn, iterate, and scale and be part of something special in creating this business together. And again, that's not for everyone. We also understand that the remote environment is unique and new to some people. It's allowed us to recruit the best and the brightest talent around the world, but for some folks it takes some getting used to. While remote work does have its communication challenges and is not for everyone, the vast majority of our employees are thriving, have built strong relationships with colleagues, and consider remote work to be one of InVision's top perks. I certainly do - it has personally been incredible for me and my family. I am always open to any additional feedback on how we could have made the experience better here at InVision, please feel free to reach out to me at ryanburke@invisionapp.com with any suggestions.

    I have been working at InVision full-time for 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 best talented, humble and smartest people I have ever worked with. Everyone is innovating new ways to work and develop the business, and the hiring process makes sure that everyone that comes in, is the right fit for them and InVision. I have the luxury to work at home, in a Starbucks, in the London WeWork, anywhere I feel comfortable, any place I feel comfortable. As a father, I can see my children grow up as I do not have the travel time to an office to battle with because of the work from home culture! The perks are fantastic too, which include but are not limited to: Free Starbucks EVERY DAY Free Books from Amazon (convenient) Linkedin Learning (excellent for learning new skills) Shares in the company (I feel like I own a bit of it too) Unlimited holidays (yes that is correct) Gym Membership The product is fantastic, I would in a customer facing role, and I have never sold a product where EVERYONE likes it. I would highly recommend the company as it is going places.

    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 exploring new avenues and projects as there are opportunities to progress and be involved with the companies growth is everywhere.

    "Great Idea block by HORRIBLE Management"

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

    Pros

    The PRO's are pretty obvious as they are listed on all job listings. You have a flexible schedule since you are remote (this could be a CON to some), company provides great work/life balance (1/2 day Fridays and PTO) along with a Starbucks card + Apple laptop to navigate your work day. For me, the world you work in (Design) is intriguing, creative and inspiring.

    Cons

    Now all the pros seem pretty dang good, which is why I left a great company to join the InVision sales team. At the time the team was new and when on-boarding you could tell there was a lack of leadership which can create a handful of issues in itself since you are remote. Management is weak. To me the definition of leadership is to be a good team leader. To have the ability to navigate a group of people to success given their strengths- THIS DOES NOT EXIST. Most people on the sales team are not entry level, however they are not set up to be successful. There is 0 formal training, product information is self exploration and the expectations are not realistic. They create a unhealthy competitive atmosphere, backed by fear instilled leadership. The expectations of your role change, daily/weekly, which is expected in a start up however the tools to be successful are not provided. Poor comp plans Poor support teams (BDR) Recruitment is borderline embarrassing when you hear the conversations that are had with potential candidates

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

    Pros

    Lots of great perks like free Starbucks drinks, free Amazon books related to your work, covered gym membership. In Sales, you are monetarily compensated for your success but there's also a base salary - which I think is a great balance. Your bosses don't hover over your shoulder. They trust you to get your work done and look for ways to help you do your job better. The people are so friendly. Even though it's a remote company, you get the chance to meet them through online meetings. Everyone's willing to help you out if you ask - no matter how busy they are. The company is still nailing down processes for different departments. In your role, you have a lot of authority to provide feedback and suggest process improvements. Everyone is important!

    Cons

    Haven't experienced any as of yet.
