    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

    Massive support from Corporate. Very tight and well integrated sales analytics. If you are good with meaningful and targeted data than this is the place for you. Also, smart people work here. If you can listen, comprehend and understand- this place is nirvana!

    Cons

    Onboarding process was fractured and not smooth- but shows signs of willingness to improve. In the end, if you know what you need you can find it- just don't expect it to show up. This is a place for people that know what they want and can get the job done!

    Advice to Management

    Don't stop and keep progressing. The course has been true thus far.

    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.

    I worked at Centrify full-time

    Pros

    None. I would not recommend working for this company. Glassdoor requires min 20 words but there are no pros. Good luck on your good company search.

    Cons

    No life work balance. Upper management out for themselves. Good luck on your good company to work for search. There are plenty out there....

    Advice to Management

    Put employees first.....

    Pros

    Great group of people to work with. Good product.

    Cons

    Poor communication. Management can't accept responsibility if they make a bad choice in hires and let things affect whole departments or personnel. Pay is below market.

    Pros

    Involved CEO; dedicated staff, many of whom have been with the company since shortly after its inception; new employee training program designed to set you up for success; growing marketplace; leader in this field of technology

    Cons

    None that I've found yet

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. It seems to work. Though I'm relatively new, everyone I speak with loves what they do and who the do it for.
