    Pros

    My manager provides me lots of autonomy in driving results. Whenever a new tactic comes out, we discuss and test immediately. The free Friday lunches, snacks and basketball add a lot of camaraderie.

    Cons

    Startups are never for the faint of heart. Expect to put in the hours especially since we're a global company.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to trust and support your employees.

    I worked at CipherCloud full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Office was in a nice location

    Cons

    During my time at CipherCloud, I noticed high turnover - layoffs and numerous people who left for other companies - and an overall lack of diversity in people (ethnicity/gender) within the company.

    The reason I left was that I was placed in a very uncomfortable situation, and I felt as though I could not reach out to HR. It was like being an outsider in a tight-knit company and my voice on this personal matter would have been drowned out if I were to say anything.

    The only reason I'm giving CipherCloud 2 stars instead of 1 is that the majority of my unhappiness was due to my manager and not the company as a whole. I realize that other teams may have had a better experience, but overall, I believe people were itching to find roles outside of the company because of bad work/life balance and culture.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more HR so people aren't afraid to voice their opinions

    Pros

    The people are nice, and the San Jose office is a great building in a great location.

    The company can't commit to a direction, and take the pain of paying down technical debt.

    A lot of freedom. Your work matters. Understanding managers

    A lot of churn. When I was there, there was 2 people a week joining. It was crazy and a ton of people leaving. It's a shell of what it used to be.

    Advice to Management
