    Pros

    The team really supports new hires. Nobody has been too busy to help get up to speed and answer basic questions. Love the work from home.

    Cons

    Could use 401k matching, better holiday time off and more training. There are not enough people to do the work so you get tossed in quickly. Will need to rely on your experience and ability to research processes and policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Update the PTO to be more competitive with other tech companies. Keep on supporting your staff!!!

    Pros

    This company is booming. I work within the Salesforce business and we had a record year.
    Flexibility to make your own path.

    Cons

    Kind of weak on the benefits. 1 week short of normal tech PTO. No matching on 401k/IRA.

    Sometimes a little bit of drift in management initiative. But that is because we are young, and you are expected to forge your own success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Add 5 days to PTO now. Start matching.

    Pros

    Small company feel with the perks of a large company. Lots of opportunity for advancement within the firm, the company is growing quickly so there's always work to be done and always an opportunity to take on more challenging roles. Strong teams with a high level of technical competency within the firm. Challenging, interesting projects with high-profile clients. Very competitive compensation.

    Cons

    PTO policy pales in comparison to some larger consulting firms. Work life balance is in general good, but growing pains may mean longer hours for some personnel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in your people and your community.

    Pros

    Great work environment. Management encourages a low-stress atmosphere, but everyone definitely gets his/her work done. The vibe is that we work out of compassion for the company, and not out of fear of deadlines.

    Cons

    Very limited levels of employment. Entry level and upper management, with little to nothing in-between. The company is still relatively new, which is likely the cause of this.

    Pros

    I love it here. The office has a great open feel, the people here have energy and passion for what they do, and management have a sense of humility unseen in other firms ( even smaller and less successful ones). I'm in a sales role, and have never felt more supported by a marketing team. They make sure you always have resources for success at your disposal. I have been here for four months and have enjoyed each one more than the last. They are cool with clothes, beer, free lunch, continuing education, time off, work-life balance and overall always striving to make the office a desirable place to be. I think it's interesting to note that about 95% of folks here could work from home daily and yet they all come in.

    Cons

    This company is established, sure. But they are as hungry as they were when the company started. Don't let the jeans and beer in the office fool you - these people bust it for Cloud Sherpas. Not a true con, but make sure you expect to work harder than the rest.

    Nothing else negative - Sherpas rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing it this way! Read "Rework" if you haven't already.

    The Boston office can be isolated since the headquarters is in Atlanta.
    Health care benefits could be better.

    I have been working at Cloud Sherpas full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the most important parts of working for a company for me is a positive environment and culture. I was part of an acquisition by Cloud Sherpas and was nervous the culture of the previous entity would be disrupted but was pleasantly surprised to find a great group of colleagues in Cloud Sherpas. It has a small company feel but is growing rapidly with a global reach.

    Cons

    As with any growing company, there is a large workload to handle. Also, with the personnel spread across the globe it can be difficult to be aware of all the activities and opportunities available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to strive for high levels of communication throughout the company.

    Pros

    Some of the most intelligent, yet appropriately humble people with whom to work. Working on clients that are at the very apex of the financial services sector. Having the ear and resources of Salesforce.com as a premier partner. Everyone is really great about celebrating each other's accomplishments.

    Cons

    The spreading of your mind share can get tiring. Significant demand of your time across projects. Tracking billable time can be challenging relative to hours allocated on a project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people faster!

    Pros

    Fantastic opportunity, a supportive culture with great potential to grow your skills and your career across a diverse set of technologies. Working with some of the very best in the business affords growth at all levels from entry level positions to management.

    Cons

    As with any consulting firm, some people just don't like putting in the travel or having to work long hours at times. The fast pace and growth of the company can make it demanding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Re-visit company benefits to continue to make them better and keep up the good work!
