    Pros

    Cloud Sherpas has all the might and funding of a Big 5 consultancy with the agility and innovative spirit of a start-up. Employees are empowered to work with the technologies and processes that work best for them and are given the latitude to make the right decision for their clients. If you're looking to further your knowledge and feel like a member of an industry leader while carving out your space in the cloud, Cloud Sherpas is the place for you.

    Cons

    The only con I have with respect to Cloud Sherpas is one of the things I love about it. There is a lack of on-boarding processes and procedure that has to be followed, but that also leaves room for employees and managers to do what's best for the situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work, in my short time here I've seen us climb to new heights and show no signs of stopping.

    Pros

    - One of the platinum partners of Salesforce.com
    - Our position in the marketplace attracts top talent. Your mentors will be incredibly intelligent, experienced and successful.
    - Company is well-funded and has an excellent business plan.
    - Opportunity to work remotely, or in one of our offices around the globe.
    - Great culture of people who want to help each other be successful. Very few lone wolves.
    - Autonomy to manage your own time and set your own goals. As long as you deliver, you will not be micromanaged.
    - Work/life balance is a lot better than other consulting groups I've worked for in the past.

    Cons

    - Still trying to fully integrate several acquisitions into a single company. Organization structure, benefits and managers are constantly changing.
    - Not a lot of opportunity to interact with your co-workers face-to-face other than people who work on your projects. I've never been to our corporate HQ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall you are doing a great job. You have sold me on your vision for the company and I am excited to be part of it. Keep employee satisfaction a priority so that we can retain all of our valuable talent for years to come.

    It is an enormous pleasure to be part of a fast growing company with so much focus on the clients and that has such a commitment to all employees

    Cons

    I have nothing to add in this category. All of the feedback is very positive at the moment.

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

    Pros

    An in house HR director was the first to contact me, not a 3rd party hiring firm with only limited knowledge of the company.
    I interviewed with inside sales reps who had heavy influence on who would be hired. These people are now my sales teammates!
    The managers I met with were laid back, but still asked the appropriate questions to qualify each candidate. Each conversation was truly a back and forth interview where each side could truly identify if it was a good fit or not.

    Cons

    All I can say is Cloud Sherpas has created an environment where it is much easier to focus on the pros rather than the cons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the pizzas coming!

    Outstanding Work Life Balance and Culture

    Pros

    One of the best things about this company is that they pretty much let you manage your projects, time and work location the way that you want. Projects are with well known companies, work weeks rarely exceed 40 hours, and you have the choice of working from home or in an office. Travel is also very manageable, often times occurring at the beginning of a project and not throughout, due to the remote nature of Salesforce.

    If you are a solid Salesforce consultant with the ability to take initiative with an independent mindset, you will absolutely thrive. There is also a culture which rewards getting things done as opposed to micro-managing the method of doing so. This however could pose a problem for those who rely on managers or are not truly Salesforce experts themselves.

    Cons

    The remote aspect of the business and fast growth sometimes prevent the social benefits of working for a company from being attained. However, things like happy hours and team building events do seem to be getting organized more and more.
