    Pros

    I have been working at CIPHER for the past 2 years and I am really shocked and saddened to read some negative reviews on this site that do not reflect my experience here and the overall culture of the company. I can't even imagine that a colleague of mine would write something like that, and I wonder if this person really exists.

    CIPHER has a meritocracy culture and I have seen first hand how it develops and nurtures high performing employees. I have to disagree with these malicious reviews and I hope that more employees like myself come here to share their positive experiences at this company that is full of talented, driven people working together in a collaborative environment.

    Cons

    None. It is normal for a fast growing company to have some challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work and don’t bother listening to jealous (most likely former disgruntled) employees.

    Pros

    None. With over 15 years experience in the computer industry, this company was the worst and will not last. They don't ever deserve 1 star.

    Cons

    The local manager should be sued. Was excited to join a start-up, but found the company is owned by another company in the UK, and they are backed by the Brazilian govt. Every sentence starts "well in Brazil we do it this way..." Unfortunately the man doesn't realize he's not in Brazil. The manager berates his employees and puts the women in tears, expect long hours, and better have an explanation if you took an extra 10 minutes for lunch. Quitting time is 6 pm EST, because that is the time they quit in Brazil. There is nobody in the SOC, all devices are managed from you probably guessed it, Brazil. I hope the US customers don't mind.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to Brazil.

    Pros

    Easy access to co-founders of the company, great office location, and real opportunities for employees that apply themselves and bring value to the company.

    Very fast-paced environment, must be on your toes to keep up. Not for people who do not believe in hard work.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication and transparency with employees on company strategy.

    Pros

    New company in the US, decisions made quickly but lack overall direction. Great new office space with new equipment and hardware.

    Cons

    Forget it if you don't speak Portugese, got yelled at for leaving 15 minutes early, no training, only 4 vacation & personal days per year - no benefits. Bring your lunch - cafe downstairs is very expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with employees - let us know what the final expectations are.

    Pros

    There are no pro's in this company if you want to work in Miami.... The owners lied to everyone that came on board from the get go. It was so blatant that every employee they had either left or put themselves in a position where it was clear they needed to go. Their technical team has no work to do and is cut off from the world with no guidance. Their entire offering as a company is a combination of a smoke screen pretending to have a 24-7 security presence and misinformed or borderline plagiarism in their technical offerings to clients. The owners are some of the most calous and dishonest people to ever open up a shop. It's also clear that the two posts " 5 weeks " ago were written by their upper management to overshadow the negative review that they received. The verbage is so obvious as to who wrote it that it could be pulled out of emails. The only " Pro " about this company is that they are transparent in their business dealings and will not succeed in a US market so the chances of them affecting more potential future employees lives negatively by bringing them on board are minimal

    Cons

    This company is a dead end/black hole to anyone who has any aspirations for achievment and makes it vividly clear in their dealings with their people that their " team " comes dead last. This company's way of handling their affairs both client facing and with their employees is the gold standard of what not to do if you want to succeed and want your people to excel.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to your host country and stop treating your employees like slaves and be more honorable in the way you handle yourselves.
