    Pros

    Decent security product, free Friday lunch and smart co-workers.

    Cons

    CipherCloud is a company that runs on "Kool-aid." Too often, you hear the term "rocket ship" being thrown around. However, There is far too much drama within the management team for any employee to grow - business and engineering people included. Management refuses to believe competitors offer similar, if not better products. This rocket ship is going nowhere fast.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and hire management members that are honest, respectable and experienced.

    Pros

    They give you salary. That's the only plus point/

    Cons

    Everything. HR team writes reviews every time the glassdoor reviews goes down. Managers are clueless about what they want and there are many projects that got scratched down because of that.

    They have no concept of work-life balance. They monitor your naukri activities. Leaving at 7 PM is considered as leaving early. I have to work in odd hours for many days continuously. Management doesn't care about the health of the employees. Appraisal rating is based on the number of hours you work in the office. Join at your own risk. Sigh.. I am still in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be ethical and learn how to be professional.

    Pros

    I joined the company because of great technology. There are few good people.

    Cons

    The top management does not provide any direction. They should be able to guide, but they are more interested in micro management. As a senior person, I'm used to a better direction and work. No respect at all for the employees, just incapable management . Bad planning and insufficient design review time and input.

    Pros

    Company is in good profit but not employees
