    The people are interesting and creative. The company is growing fast with lots of opportunities. They try very hard to take care of their employees and provide a pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    The company is growing fast, they had to move half the employees into another suite. Meeting space is at a premium.

    It is not a 40 hours a week job but at the same time who said you need to sleep 9h a night anyway ;)

    Pros

    People are very bright, helpful and supportive. Company does a lot of things that show that it really cares about people. Complete flexibility of schedule and a lot of autonomy. Everything moves at a very fast pace with a focus on accomplishment rather than politics.
    The atmosphere is very positive in part due to the success the company is having with very rapid growth. CipherCloud had to move 3 times in a year due to employee expansion at HQ and last quarters are very nice with lots of natural light and great views from the 11th floor.
    Being at the intersection of two major technology trends (cloud computing and security) means that there is a lot of opportunity for the company.
    Benefits are good. Like most startups there are free snacks, drinks and frozen lunches.

    Cons

    Things move quickly which means many changes of direction and limited processes. If you like to make sure that everything is going to go the way you plan, this isn't the right environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work
