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

    Pros

    People are very bright, helpful and supportive. Company does a lot of things that show that it really cares about people. Complete flexibility of schedule and a lot of autonomy. Everything moves at a very fast pace with a focus on accomplishment rather than politics.
    The atmosphere is very positive in part due to the success the company is having with very rapid growth. CipherCloud had to move 3 times in a year due to employee expansion at HQ and last quarters are very nice with lots of natural light and great views from the 11th floor.
    Being at the intersection of two major technology trends (cloud computing and security) means that there is a lot of opportunity for the company.
    Benefits are good. Like most startups there are free snacks, drinks and frozen lunches.

    Cons

    Things move quickly which means many changes of direction and limited processes. If you like to make sure that everything is going to go the way you plan, this isn't the right environment for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Pros

    The company's growing rapidly: 1.2 million customers in under 3 years and the business outlook is strong.
    Experienced leadership: CEO & founder, Pravin Kothari, was a co-founder of ArcSight, which HP acquired for $1.6 billion.
    Flat hierarchy, open culture, highly collaborative, open door policy.
    If you enjoy wearing multiple hats in your discipline, you'll thrive on the abundant opportunities to broaden your responsibilities and set stretch goals.
    Friday lunch-and-learns are informative and fun -- the meals are always tasty and provide a welcome break to socialize across divisions.

    Cons

    As typical of companies in fast growth mode, we work long hour and often take work home, including for the weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the open culture.

    Pros

    The people are interesting and creative. The company is growing fast with lots of opportunities. They try very hard to take care of their employees and provide a pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast, they had to move half the employees into another suite. Meeting space is at a premium.

    Pros

    It is sooo good to work for the winning team, with a great technology, making each customer a happy and satisfied customer. Company's culture is really great with company's lunch/get together, games to bring a smile on each employee, day after day.

    It is not a 40 hours a week job but at the same time who said you need to sleep 9h a night anyway ;)

    1 year at CipherCloud provides better learning and growth opportunities than 5 years at a Fortune 500 company.

    Cons

    - Long commute if you live in SF
    - Just like any startup, don't expect it to be a 9-5 job
