    Pros

    Very innovative Product concept. Professional and motivating atmosphere. Provides opportunity to innovate & experiment. Flexible work culture. Exciting atmosphere, where in we can explore different things and a good opportunity to work on different things. Leads and manager are very supportive and encourage us to do Research and Development work. Excellent training programs in Cloud Security. A very involved HR Team. Timely appreciation of work by the Senior Management. Free flow of communication between the management and the employees. Excellent Pay package and benefits for the employee and their dependents. Very good Performance management system, high performers are given very good hikes more than the industry average.

    Cons

    We need aggressive marketing and branding in the domestic market. Need to promote the product in the domestic market. We should attend more conferences and technology events locally. Company should also sponsor technology events in the campus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the culture of innovation with focus in the niche area of Cloud Security.

    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

    I like the concept of product and the technology we work on. I like the people, their attitude and team work to support each other. It is really nice to work for a company with such a good culture and energy.

    Cons

    Things change fast in this fast growing company. I saw the team grew from 100 to 300 in the last 12 months which can be challenging for some people. A lot of advanced technology to learn here which is a positive for many people but can be difficult for some.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A lot of new technology. Knowledge sharing sessions to be enhanced for more productivity.
