Management is poor and top management is the worst.

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

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

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

ConsThe 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
