I have been working at CradlePoint full-time (Less than a year)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
- Great group of people to work with. Even though Boise might not be the "big city" for tech employment, Cradlepoint has assembled a top-notch team in every department. Definitely the best company to work for in the city, probably in the region as well.
- Work/Life balance is very acceptable. You might work long hours a couple nights each week, but there isn't the same kind of unreasonable demand on your personal life that you might see in a startup.
- Management is good, personable, etc. The sales team is particularly fun to work with, and growing so fast that there are new challenges (the good kind) every day.
- The huge pace of growth is a really good problem to have, and one that the company has dealt with well so far. With that said, expect to change/outgrow offices every year or so. I switched offices 3 times in a year.
- There is a pretty good effort by the company leadership to share day-to-day information about the company's operations with weekly company presentations, but sometimes the strategic/long-term message gets muddled by the rapid product launches and all of the change.
Advice to Management
There is a ton of potential in the market, so continue being aggressive and capturing it wherever possible. The only limitation to Cradlepoint's near-term growth potential is its location in Idaho, so consider opening satellite offices for developers/engineers/etc. in the Bay Area or some other tech hub (Austin? RTP?)
Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 1 day – interviewed at CradlePoint (Boise, ID) in November 2014.
Initial communications with this company were concise. The time from their Follow up-call to interview was less than 24 hours. The interview started on time with two individuals at 10am sharp. First questions, "what brings you here today"? Basically, they just want to get you talking.. The 2nd question was "are you familiar with the verticals we sell to". From there, they explained a "typical day" as an Inside Sales Manager: mostly cold calling and checking in with cellular vendors; Sprint, Verizon, At&T etc to make sure all is well on the service side and to make sure they are equipped to answer technical questions. They primarily sell to resellers. The sales center is set up like a typical call center and the culture is very relaxed and casual and I do not mean "business casual". I showed up in shirt and tie and felt out of place.
