    Pros

    The team is the best and has the knowledge and skillsets to succeed. The teamwork is exceptional and everyone cares about their team's success. It is a very fast paced environment with extremely skilled professionals. The best approach is to just jump in!

    Cons

    The pace is extremely fast paced and there isn't enough time to do all the things to get acquianted and train the the companies internal systems. It it figuring it out as you go along which when you have a lot of deliverables this adds to the demandingness of the job.

    I worked at Cloud Sherpas full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Parts of the organization have energetic leadership, with the skills to follow-through on executing goals with integrity and develop their teams. Some groups are highly collaborative and ideal for go-getter employees who work in the same office as their team and superiors. Fun perks like Lunch and Learns with free meals on Wednesdays are nice. There are many very, very capable employees; great connection point for those who plan to follow a technology or entrepreneurial career path.

    Cons

    No training, low transparency, and utter lack of structure in some groups can alienate and discourage even for the most ambitious of employees. This is particularly true in scenarios where employees are remote and there's little sense of team. Feedback to middle management falls on deaf ears. So, instead of professionals striving to genuinely improve together and elevate the whole to success, the message is more like, "This is what it is -- if you don't like it, there's the door." (Note: this varies widely by group).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a consulting company. Listen to your people -- they are the core of the company.

    Pros

    The pay very competitive and you have the opportunity to work VERY independently, as in with little to no guidance whatsoever.

    Cons

    The overall direction of the company implies strong senior management, however management at the mid to lower levels is seriously lacking. There is no real direction provided and the soul purpose of the management team is to ensure you are as close to 100% utilized as possible, even if that means staffing under qualified consultants on projects marketing them as "experts"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have true Project Managers managing projects. Promoting a very good developer to a senior manager level does both the team under him/her and the client a grave injustice and serves as an unproductive work model. Try PMPs instead of Certified Developers...you'd be surprised at how much efficiency you'd gain.

    Pros

    Hard working employees who take pride in everything they do, innovative atmosphere, easily accessible management. Exciting to be a part of a company that's growing so rapidly and really has an understanding of where the market is heading in regards to the Cloud.

    Cons

    Spread out employees because of the nature of the business so you don't get to meet as many people as you'd like to face-to-face, but we make good use of Google Hangout to get more face-to-face interaction
