    Pros

    Work is very independent where you feel like you are running your own company within a company. The boss is hands off, but there to support you whenever you need it. The work is demanding and a lot is expected of you, but with the freedom to make your own decisions means you don't have to go through a lot of red tape to get things done. Exposure to upper management is abundant. You will receive valuable insight on where the company is going and responsibility in getting the company to where it wants to be. Hours can be long, but if you set up a good system you will allow yourself more time off. PTO is industry average but it can be stretched depending on your manager and work from home policies. You won't want to take too much time off here with how much is on your plate and the people who depend on you. There are always new people coming in, so if you have been here for three months you are considered a veteran.

    Cons

    With less structure, there is more chaos. It is great to be free to handle situations the way you want, but the downside is that things can be messy sometimes and missed. Adding structure is a constant goal in the group and with so much on our plate it is difficult to focus on it. There is hardly any training at all so it is up to you to figure out what to do when you get here. Overall a great company that isn't perfect, but comparably much better place to work than most companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retirement contribution, clearer bonus/raise structure from upper management, more engagement from upper management.

    Pros

    Great culture, colleagues collaborate globally really well. For a boutique, they are doing a bang up job implementing Salesforce solutions for clients of all sizes. Clients love the work Cloud Sherpas does.

    Cons

    Benefits aren't the greatest. Very limited vacation time. No 401k match. SFDC President is purely numbers focused, probably to please the investors. Sales compensation plan and bonus structures for delivery are cumbersome and challenging to really leverage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Comp plans are too complex. Vacation policy is really not competitve in the industry. Lack of 401k match is a turnoff. Good focus on work life balance, and really good, collaborative culture. Important to look at the big picture and not only the numbers. Some of the tools like Go To Meeting are cumbersome internally and for the clients.

    Culture is tough to form with employees working so widely across the globe.

    Pros

    During the interview process, every person I met reinforced my decision to leave another top consulting company in this same space. While I've just started with Cloud Sherpas, I'm excited about what's ahead both for me professionally and the organization. Cloud Sherpas is going places!
    > Strong, positive culture - This was my top priority in making a move
    > Ability to work remote while still connecting in-person with colleagues
    > Good benefits
    > Fast growth
    > Great compensation
    > Top talent

    Cons

    None that I've come across yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building a strong culture, hiring the right team members, and investing in every Sherpa.

    Pros

    This company has opened so many doors for me. I have learned so much through all of the training options the company provides and by getting the chance to work with very talented and experienced people. The perks are great for remote employees and they really do treat there employees great. Working from home it is hard to meet other team members, but since I have been with the company I have met many team members through onboarding and trainings and I can honestly say that as a remote employee I feel like I am part of a team. The company provides a great work life and does a great job at making sure you have time with the family. I am proud to call myself a Sherpa.

    Cons

    Sometimes travel can be extensive but it works out when you are working from home.

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

    Pros

    The Team atmosphere is by far the best aspect of the company, and like no other place I've worked. Even though we're organized into teams, I know that I can reach out to any other teams or team leads and get assistance. For a Professional Services organization, this is unheard of.

    Cons

    The benefits are merely average.
    Two weeks of vacation, basic medical (Aetna), but dental & vision are included. Average prices to add dependents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback on the quality and variety of benefits available.

    Pros

    I'm not hounded by a manager or a manager's manager. I'm treated like a person vs a number which is refreshing. I've been given goals and guidance and the freedom to reach those goals in a way that works best for me.

    Cons

    fountain drinks in the kitchen. I mean, come on!!! you're setting me up for failure!! (kidding)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work...I've been apart of start-ups in the past and as success and business grow, poor processes and lack of communication, can become the killer of morale and company culture.

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

    Pros

    At first I thought it sounded a little too good to be true, but this company is the real deal. They are growing exponentially but they continue to keep their eye on quality, customer service and resource enrichment. I have only been with Cloud Sherpas 1 month. They impressed me during the interview process and I continue to be impressed with the management team and the work model.

    Cons

    While there is noticeable investment in the internal processes and tools, it still needs to catch up with the growth. There are still some growing pains that come with merging multiple companies but the good news is the awareness and conscious effort to manage the new company identify.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focus on employee development and connectivity, which in turn will lead to stellar delivery and client satisfaction along with a willingness to pay for it. Don't let internal processes and activities drop on your radar.
