Outstanding product, competitive, feature rich, cutting edge in email security marketplace. Young energetic company still feels a little like a start up.
While the company isn't growing in size, it is changing into a "real" company as they build toward an IPO or something to take the firm to "the next level". Some of the "charm" of a startup has been replaced with the demands of hitting sales targets.
Advice to Management
Don't forget what made Mimecast great to begin with. Make sure your leaders or people you promote have that same character and concern for the employees.
I applied online. I interviewed at Mimecast.
This was by far the most unprofessional experience I have ever had with a company. I was contacted immediately after applying and asked a few questions about my resume and discussed salary and benefits. The hiring manager said they were going to check with the team to see if they want to bring me in. I hear back a few days later and was told that they wanted to schedule an in person interview. They ask me a few more questions about my resume and things immediately took a turn for the worse. They told me the job description on their website isn't correct and the duties I said I was used to doing were not part of the job description (well maybe its time to post the correct description then?). Then they told me that I don't have any relevant experience and actually started yelling at me that I don't have what they were looking for (hey, you contacted me). The job description stated 4 years paralegal experience and did not specify what type of paralegal (again, maybe its time to update your job description). They said they would call me back the next day but as I expected, I didn't hear back. Between the incorrect job posting being listed on the website, and being accosted for not meeting the requirements that weren't posted anywhere after they were the ones to contact me, I have never had such a bad experience before even interviewing with a company.
