    I have been working at CIPHER Security full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have been working at CIPHER for the past 2 years and I am really shocked and saddened to read some negative reviews on this site that do not reflect my experience here and the overall culture of the company. I can't even imagine that a colleague of mine would write something like that, and I wonder if this person really exists.

    CIPHER has a meritocracy culture and I have seen first hand how it develops and nurtures high performing employees. I have to disagree with these malicious reviews and I hope that more employees like myself come here to share their positive experiences at this company that is full of talented, driven people working together in a collaborative environment.

    Cons

    None. It is normal for a fast growing company to have some challenges.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the good work and don’t bother listening to jealous (most likely former disgruntled) employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    You can learn a lot, everyday. There are very good and very intelligent people working there, always willing to help and to do a good job. Managers will praise when needed and make the employee feel appreciated. You can always give your opinion and make the difference in a project.

    Cons

    Management needs to trust more on its employees, focus its goals and provide better equipments to work. Almost everything that happens will depend on the opinion of the CEO, which will limit sometimes the team members, the project, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Again: trust more on people. Some people will work hard and give their best to make a good job and have a good and plain life. Offer better equipments, the option of home office in 1 or 2 days per week. I wish you all the best and thank you. :)

    Pros

    Great opportunities to develop your skills

    Cons

    Sometimes Cipher acts like a small company, with archaic controls and process, like travels or reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    Cipher apparently has a nice future ahead, but sometimes lacks a good housekeeping and could invest more on its employees, such as improving compensation and benefits.
