    Poor Management, Favoritism and Politics

    Software Engineer In Test (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsFree snacks, good commute (if you happen to live in SF0 but otherwise nothing else I can think of at the moment.

    ConsVery bad management, longtime employees do little work, seemingly random firings (except euro workers who are protected by euro labor laws), management 'encourages' new ideas but fires those who innovate, politics and favoritism are rampant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe board should get some new senior managers - soon!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Everyone at Cloudmark is doing their best.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsEveryone at Cloudmark is competent to do their jobs. The core product of the company is an important service and the employees are proud to be involved.

    ConsEveryone is bright and opinionated, so technical discussions can take a while to resolve. Sometimes things are made more complicated than they need to be. Methodical approaches are more appreciated than creative solutions.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter documentation of the company's knowledge assets needs to be required by everyone. More efficient and easier researched technical information system is required for the long-term survival of the company. The technical information of the company is often held in one or two people's heads and/or stored in random, badly linked and index "wiki" pages. When staff changes over there is a significant learning curve for anyone assuming the needed duties.

    Cloudmark is the best company I have ever worked for.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsThe people and the fact that we do something that makes a difference. Since we're a start-up, it's really easy and fast to invoke positive change. Senior management is very accessible and are the type of people you would enjoy having a drink with.

    ConsNot the type of benefits you would get from a larger company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTell us more often about what is happening in the company (e.g.) financials, deals in the works, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
