  1. "Review"

    I worked at CipherCloud full-time

    Pros

    1. The best CEO. you have freedom to share any feedback with CEO and sure it will get addressed.

    2. You will get product knowledge and can learn something different from regular concepts.

    3. Salary compensation and benefits are good. If you are talented, you can expect the best hike.

    Cons

    Yes, there is Micro Management.

    Advice to Management

    1. Please implement monthly review on Managers and vice versa. Any concerns, feedback's and questions need to be discussed and solved in the presence of Director (The Director should not related with the Team member or Manager, he should be from different dept). I believe, it would solve issues.

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

    Pros

    managent brought in to restructure field org was the reason I joined. But they have all left.

    Cons

    Too Many good people left due to CEO micromanagement and bad decision making. This company will only survive if CEO steps down.

    Advice to Management

    Stop lying to customers and employees. Bring in some real professionals that can steer the ship in the right direction and get the product fixed. Hiring "yes men" to the CEO will only make the place go down in flames faster.
