    Pros

    Growing quickly and has a good brand

    Cons

    Uncertainty in direction of the business locally and globally. Lacked culture in the office, with a hot desk enviornment and often quiet. The 3 business units are very segmented with little interaction between teams. There are no benefits such as health care, gym subsidies, insurances etc...

    I personally did not receive much support during my role and know of others who experienced the same. Internal processes are long, expect a lot of admin work with long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Be clear about the direction of the company and communicate to all staff.

    Pros

    Flexibility to WFH; Consultants really care about providing the best service to clients; Everyone (including Senior Management) will jump in to help solve a problem or issue and work to a solution rather than pointing fingers.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can be challenging as you're constantly overloaded (Resource management is non existent); Benefits - no 401(k) match & PTO policy not competitive in the market. Growth opportunities vary depending on the BU you're in.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and invest in internal products & policies (at the business unit level - not just shared services) so we aren't consistently playing catch up when something is thrown over the fence to delivery.

    Pros

    Employees are always willing to lend a hand. Everyone I have met in the company is extremely talented, and management is flexible to real-work situations.

    Cons

    A slightly unorganized internal system.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Pros

    Work from home, great leadership that listens and improves systems that are broken

    Cons

    We're a services business so it's about billable hours and forecasting those hours. That weekly grind of forecasting gets old.

    Advice to Management

    We hit our targets for billable hours all the time. Ease up on the forecasting piece.

  7. Great company culture, gives you the tools to get your job done and then gets out of your way so you can do it.

    Pros

    Cloud Sherpas is a great place to work at if you like having the autonomy to do your job in the way that suits you best. There are general policies and procedures to follow, but for the most part you are free to do your job in the way that works best for you. Not only that, there is truly a sense of team among my coworkers. Everyone I work with is willing and able to do their best work because they want their coworkers to be successful.

    Cons

    No 401k match is a little disappointing, but not unheard of at a company of this size. Also, many of the teams are well silo'd from each other, so you don't get much visibility into what other parts of the organization are up to, or how you might be able to help them.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage more interaction between teams. It will help improve the already good company culture as well as broaden the skill level of your employees, which is good for everyone.

    Pros

    Freedom to work at your own pace and a low key atmosphere

    Cons

    Not very fulfilling when there isn't meaningful work for you to do

    Advice to Management

    Have a more structured intern program that provides a specific set of skills or development upon completion of the internship

    Pros

    Fun place to work and great colleagues. Good startup culture, at least early on. Very strong founding team.

    Cons

    Culture changed too dramatically, too quickly. Low relative comp. Weak benefits (like health care and 401k), except the in-office benefits. Lots of travel. Chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    This stuff is already part of every other firm's core services. Your market leadership is eroding. Sell while there's still an advantage to an acquirer. Even if it's a partial sale of only some units.
