    I have been working at Centrify full-time

    Pros

    Things I think are cool:
    - Only vendor identified as a leader in two related security markets (Identity as a Service and Privilege Identity Management). Not many companies are ever named a leader, in any single market by Gartner or Forrester. Centrify has been identified as a leader by both in two different markets.
    - Great stable of customers that love Centrify and consistently renew their subscriptions or maintenance year after year
    - Talented sales management has led to great growth in sales bookings over the years
    - Long time engineering leaders that have had their hand in all of the products
    - Phenomenal support team that customers love
    - No crappy acquire-ware that has to be torn down and integrated with core products
    - Great investors and board that has stuck with Centrify since the beginning
    - Knowledgeable CEO that can knows what is happening with every department, product, customer and competitor. I have worked with CEO's that didn't have a good handle on their company and I would much rather have a bit more scrutinization from a credible CEO than an out of touch one that doesn't understand the decisions they are being asked to make.

    Cons

    Not many. I suppose when you get a couple of hundred smart, talented people in the same building there are going to be unnecessary tensions. Centrify, as with any company, does better when they are focused on customer and market success rather than personal pettiness and personal agendas. A few individuals could do a better job at believing the best in others and showing a little more grace to their peers.

    Luckily, this is a company that keeps hitting new and important milestones in customers, market leadership, products and sales. When you are succeeding it makes all of the petty concerns much less important.

    Advice to Management

    Management is super smart, which sometimes leads to focusing on only how we can improve and misses the chance to acknowledge the great work and results as they happen. Keep encouraging and recognizing all the great work and results that the team is achieving.

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

    Pros

    - Centrify has great, innovative products.
    - Centrify allows me to have a nice work/life balance.
    - I get to work with some really smart people.
    - Centrify is about to realize explosive revenue growth over the next several months and I'm excited to be part of this.

    I came to Centrify from a Fortune 100 technology brand and am happy that I did. It feels more exciting here and I feel I have a bit more flexibility and influence over the success and growth of the company. It's apparent, too, that my vision and creativity are valued by my manager, teammates and those in other departments that I collaborate with. Also, in the year I've been part of Centrify, we've been recognized by Gartner as a Magic Quadrant Leader, by Forrester as a Wave leader and by several tech publications as the best of the best in our space. It was a great career move; I'm proud to be part of this extended team.

    Cons

    We have the products and team to destroy the competition. Time to own our leadership position.

    Pros

    The CEO is passionate about our vision and platform. He is equally passionate about his employees and the team we've assembled. Great work life balance, and opportunity to grow professionally.

    Cons

    Accountability is lacking, but accountability starts with the employee/individual. We can accomplish far more by holding ourselves and each other to a standard, and not easily accepting excuses for failed achievement.

    Advice to Management

    Establish a long-term vision! Determine how we are going to be a $500M company over the next 3-5 years, and let's go for it!

    I worked at Centrify full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Potentially a great company. Very good products and development. This company will thrive once the stale senior sales management finally retires.

    Cons

    Mean-spirited sales management that are still living in the dark ages. Senior sales managers that have no business leading a team. No innovate, forward thinking sales strategies in years. Still using the old fear based management style that went out of favor in the 80s. Not willing to consider and accept new ideas unless you can get them to believe they thought of it. CEO is blind to all of this, just does not care or agrees and believes in it. The best and brightest leave after realizing what the culture (or lack of one) really is like and how inept the leaders are.

    Advice to Management

    Take responsibility for what you have created. It is exactly the way you want it. The only problem is your thinking is seriously flawed and your best and brightest walk out the door. The exodus of staff is on you. People are quitting you not the company.
