    I have been working at CIPHER Security full-time (more than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at CIPHER Security as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    There are no pro's for places like this. They treat employees like trash. They run demo software in production ( illegal/imoral) The leadership will lie to you to keep you going, knowing full and well they don't plan on delivering on their promises.

    Cons

    terrible culture, leadership, guidance. join this company at your peril

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    hire a US firm to manage your US branch. this is not a favela

    Since you preferred posting an anonymous review we cannot help you directly but we respect your choice. However, we do find it odd that you designate yourself as a "contractor" since we don¹t have ... More

    I worked at CIPHER Security full-time (less than a year)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Go back to Brazil.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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