    Pros

    Fast growing, lots of responsibility in new technologies. They are definitely on the leading edge of new enterprise cloud technology.

    Cons

    Very few. If you're not able to pull your own weight, you are likely to get left behind.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work and continue to help define what enterprises with new technologies.

    Pros

    Great people, strong technology offerings, competitive in the Salesforce delivery landscape, flexibility and less travel than other consulting companies, competitive pay

    Cons

    Lack of a strong corporate culture or identity, employees are stretched too thin across multiple accounts and projects, poor vacation policy for consulting, immature performance management processes. There are also several people in leadership positions that came from the legacy companies via merger that are not adding value

    Pros

    On a high-level, if you are looking for an energetic environment, working with super smart people, and very few sluggish internal processes, then Sherpas is the one you're looking for. There are tons of opportunities to grow, and many people got promoted promptly because of their talent and hardwork, period. Pros: 1. Rapid growth = great career opportunity 2. Pay is competitive in the ecosystem 3. Top talent - no doubt about that. Interview was really smooth and professional. Initial contact with recruiter, followed by a couple rounds of phone interviews, technical interviews, and case study. Interviewers are professional, down-to-earth and ask really serious questions (no tricky behavioral questions, or IQ trap, just plain and solid knowledge & experience check).

    Cons

    1. Benefits is average (PTO is mediocre, No 401K matching is a surprise, no tuition reimbursement etc.)

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing right now. Be innovative. Foster and retain the awesome vibe as the company grows bigger and bigger. Keep investing more on your employees as they are the most valuable assets to the company and really a top-notch!

    This company is managed well - the culture, the financials, the company growth, the career growth. Everyone is positive and collaborative. You feel like your peers are tops in the industry. They earn the customer's respect, and one another's.

    Cons

    Growth is accelerated. Sometimes you're asked to wear one too many hats.

    Pros

    Excellent company to work for! I've been here close to three years and the company continues to grow and strengthen its position as a leader in the industry. Great people to work with, couldn't be happier with my decision to be a Sherpa.

    Cons

    Because of the large growth over the last year or so, expectations are high and it can get pretty stressfull at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    Pros

    Work environment: Collaborative, entrepreneurial environment. There is a general openness to new ideas and trying new things. Benefits: Great benefits. There are 3 healthcare plan options, the basic plan is completely free to the employee. The high end plan is around $35/per pay period for an individual. Short term disability is automatic for all employees. Hours: Most employees come in at 9am and leave at 5pm. Professional Development: The company offers "lunch and learns" to employees in the office 1-2x a month. Food is provided and we have a speaker talk about technology innovations. Transparency: Quarterly updates on company performance are offered via GTM presentations so employees know how the company is doing. Growth Opportunities: The company really seems to value its employees, if you do well there are promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    The only real con I see is that there is currently no 401K matching. Hopefully its coming!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Cloud Sherpas hires very good people and puts them in a position to succeed. The focus is on the customer and the culture fosters collaboration to help make our clients successful.

    Cons

    Our success requires a lot of individual time and effort and hinders work/life balance. It's not all bad because it's a company-wide dedication that produces results.
