    Pros

    During the interview process, every person I met reinforced my decision to leave another top consulting company in this same space. While I've just started with Cloud Sherpas, I'm excited about what's ahead both for me professionally and the organization. Cloud Sherpas is going places!
    > Strong, positive culture - This was my top priority in making a move
    > Ability to work remote while still connecting in-person with colleagues
    > Good benefits
    > Fast growth
    > Great compensation
    > Top talent

    Cons

    None that I've come across yet

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep building a strong culture, hiring the right team members, and investing in every Sherpa.

    Pros

    Great people overall, open culture, smiling faces, fast paced...

    Cons

    Not many people have much experience, there's little training and support. There is no work-life balance here, expect to work weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more in touch with what employees are doing, let them know they're doing a good job, and provide proper training to all of staff including resources.

    Pros

    This company has opened so many doors for me. I have learned so much through all of the training options the company provides and by getting the chance to work with very talented and experienced people. The perks are great for remote employees and they really do treat there employees great. Working from home it is hard to meet other team members, but since I have been with the company I have met many team members through onboarding and trainings and I can honestly say that as a remote employee I feel like I am part of a team. The company provides a great work life and does a great job at making sure you have time with the family. I am proud to call myself a Sherpa.

    Cons

    Sometimes travel can be extensive but it works out when you are working from home.

    I have been working at Cloud Sherpas full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The Team atmosphere is by far the best aspect of the company, and like no other place I've worked. Even though we're organized into teams, I know that I can reach out to any other teams or team leads and get assistance. For a Professional Services organization, this is unheard of.

    Cons

    The benefits are merely average.
    Two weeks of vacation, basic medical (Aetna), but dental & vision are included. Average prices to add dependents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solicit feedback on the quality and variety of benefits available.

    Pros

    I'm not hounded by a manager or a manager's manager. I'm treated like a person vs a number which is refreshing. I've been given goals and guidance and the freedom to reach those goals in a way that works best for me.

    Cons

    fountain drinks in the kitchen. I mean, come on!!! you're setting me up for failure!! (kidding)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    keep up the good work...I've been apart of start-ups in the past and as success and business grow, poor processes and lack of communication, can become the killer of morale and company culture.

    Pros

    At first I thought it sounded a little too good to be true, but this company is the real deal. They are growing exponentially but they continue to keep their eye on quality, customer service and resource enrichment. I have only been with Cloud Sherpas 1 month. They impressed me during the interview process and I continue to be impressed with the management team and the work model.

    Cons

    While there is noticeable investment in the internal processes and tools, it still needs to catch up with the growth. There are still some growing pains that come with merging multiple companies but the good news is the awareness and conscious effort to manage the new company identify.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep focus on employee development and connectivity, which in turn will lead to stellar delivery and client satisfaction along with a willingness to pay for it. Don't let internal processes and activities drop on your radar.

    Pros

    I have felt appreciated since Day 1 and I continue to feel this way. It is a fast moving organization, which I enjoy. Plenty of personal opportunities for career growth. They are transforming from a startup to a more mature organization with mature processes, which is a good thing. Compensation is good. People are great. Overall, very pleased.

    Cons

    PTO policy is not very competitive
