    As a Sr. Manager, on occasion, schedule gets overbooked, but it evens out over time. It's the nature of the business

    I have been working at Cloud Sherpas full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Work environment: Collaborative, entrepreneurial environment. There is a general openness to new ideas and trying new things.

    Benefits: Great benefits. There are 3 healthcare plan options, the basic plan is completely free to the employee. The high end plan is around $35/per pay period for an individual. Short term disability is automatic for all employees.

    Hours: Most employees come in at 9am and leave at 5pm.

    Professional Development: The company offers "lunch and learns" to employees in the office 1-2x a month. Food is provided and we have a speaker talk about technology innovations.

    Transparency: Quarterly updates on company performance are offered via GTM presentations so employees know how the company is doing.

    Growth Opportunities: The company really seems to value its employees, if you do well there are promotion opportunities.

    Cons

    The only real con I see is that there is currently no 401K matching. Hopefully its coming!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    Cloud Sherpas hires very good people and puts them in a position to succeed. The focus is on the customer and the culture fosters collaboration to help make our clients successful.

    Cons

    Our success requires a lot of individual time and effort and hinders work/life balance. It's not all bad because it's a company-wide dedication that produces results.

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

    Pros

    • Very collaborative environment.
    • Minimal politics.
    • Work with many smart people.
    • Opportunity and encouragement to grow your own skill set.
    • A very personable and ethical senior management.
    • A charitable company.
    • Get to work on projects for a variety of clients.
    • Employees are generally treated with a great deal of respect by fellow co-workers.
    • Ability to work remotely.
    • Overall a great company culture.

    Cons

    • While working remotely does have it's advantages, the loss of daily, in person human interaction can takes its own toll. Luckily many Sherpas create reasons to gather and interact in person aside from onsite projects.

    • You are your own IT Department on some level. It may be a given that one working for a tech company would have no problem trouble shooting general computer network issues, but it is something to note. Cloud Sherpas does have a helpful IT team, however when working from home while giving a presentation via GTM and then everything suddenly goes haywire for whatever reason, you're on your own to figure it out and get back up and running asap. Just something to keep in mind.

    • No 401k match (yet)

    • Minimal holidays off

    Advice to Management

    Nothing yet.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, flexible hours, friendly staff. It really is a great work environment, and the ability to remote work for most positions is a big plus.

    Cons

    They do not match 401k, so far that's the only issue I have.

    Pros

    Work from home, great leadership that listens and improves systems that are broken

    Cons

    We're a services business so it's about billable hours and forecasting those hours. That weekly grind of forecasting gets old.

    Advice to Management

    We hit our targets for billable hours all the time. Ease up on the forecasting piece.
