    Pros

    Great work environment and people. The culture here is strong and great. Everyone is a hard worker and there is minimal micro management.

    Cons

    Sometimes more direction and training should be required of all staff. Management and structure of the business continuously changes.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key

    I worked at Mimecast full-time

    Pros

    Absolute rock solid product. Very friendly and fun people to work with, everyone helps out everyone else. Still a small startup feel even though the company has been around over 10 years.

    Cons

    A few people have their own agendas, and that ruins the small company feel when they get involved. The company also is taking steps to transition itself into a more mature company. This may be to IPO soon or possibly be bought in the near future. Regardless, the organizational changes are disruptive and often confusing to the rest of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Stabilize the sales force. Do not change the comp plan every quarter or 6 months. Doing so causes the early weeks of each quarter to be wasted as sales focuses on negotiating carry-overs verses selling. Plus, building pipeline farther out than three months is considered wasteful as it will most likely just end up benefiting someone else.

    I have been working at Mimecast full-time

    Pros

    Mimecast provides the support needed to be a successful sales person. They excel from top to bottom - the education team to their SVP of Sales, they are all involved. Mimecast invests in their people and really does care about your success and well being of course : )

    Cons

    None - Mimecast is fantastic!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!


  9. Culture eats strategy for lunch

    Pros

    - Everyone for the most part tries their best each day - The primary focus of the executive teams seems to be to create a fun work environment for everyone

    Cons

    - newer company (11 years) therefore some competitors get more recognition even if their products are inferior - also, because they're new, they have to make mistakes in order to learn and grow


  10. Very fun work environment but pretty disorganized

    I worked at Mimecast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great place to work right out of college, lots of young people, traveled often, enjoyed myself, and it paid very well. There was also a yoga studio and gym in the office as well as a fully stocked kitchen

    Cons

    There was not much organization. Upper management was awesome but below them was not very well kept together.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep tabs on reps a little bit more
