Best Places to Work: 2016 (#3)
I have been working at CloudLock full-time (Less than a year)
I joined CloudLock in July, right before the acquisition and it has been a great experience.
My days are very fast-paced and challenging but I enjoy it because I get new opportunities often and have been learning a lot. Every day is different. I have been given a lot of responsibilities and grown from them. I think there is a lot of ways to make your mark here and people who take initiatives are highly applauded.
Work/life balance is good, summer Fridays were great!
The culture is fun, not over the top but there are a lot of friendly people and there are a good amount of things that you can participate in.
In my experience, I find that my role is not super defined. I am doing more than I expected when I accepted the offer, which is good in my case but some might be surprised by this. Not necessarily a con but being a self-starter is important here. There is not a ton of documentation on how to do things so you need to seek out information and get projects going.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at CloudLock (Waltham, MA) in July 2014.
The hiring and interview process went smoothly and quickly. I submitted my application online and received a call the same day. A phone screening was conducted and then an in-person interview was scheduled, where I met with three or four people. I was invited back for round two the following day to meet a couple other individuals. Shortly thereafter, an offer was made. Application to offer letter in one week - impressively speedy.
The interviews themselves were terrific. Everyone I spoke with was positive and easy to hold a conversation with. I was treated very well throughout the process and my excitement around CloudLock (which was already high) grew considerably throughout the interview process - all without any excessive "selling" by the employees.
My background in technology seemed to be a big plus and open up the dialogue a bit more. I could tell the position - and the company - would be demanding and expectations were high. I wouldn't characterize the interview as difficult in the sense that it was especially rigorous or the interviewers were harsh, but the standard for achievement seemed to be high - not necessarily a downside if you want to work with a high-quality pool of driven and productive people.
My impressions after the interview were very positive. My primary takeaway was that everyone was very, very intelligent and focused. I got the impression that CloudLock was a collection of brilliant and talented individuals all working towards a common goal with a true team mentality. Collaboration and the importance of taking initiative were all mentioned.
The office itself seemed very cool - an open environment with a lot of collaboration. Employees looked busy and the mood was decidedly upbeat.
