    I have been working at CloudLock full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I joined CloudLock in July, right before the acquisition and it has been a great experience. My days are very fast-paced and challenging but I enjoy it because I get new opportunities often and have been learning a lot. Every day is different. I have been given a lot of responsibilities and grown from them. I think there is a lot of ways to make your mark here and people who take initiatives are highly applauded. ...

    Cons

    In my experience, I find that my role is not super defined. I am doing more than I expected when I accepted the offer, which is good in my case but some might be surprised by this. Not necessarily a con but being a self-starter is important here. There is not a ton of documentation on how to do things so you need to seek out information and get projects going.

    I have been working at CloudLock full-time

    Pros

    Really great co-workers in Waltham that are easy to get along with. Pay is decent and work/life balance is pretty much whatever you choose. Free lunches on Friday are above average. The local HR and office management is great and have created a cozy work environment. The chickenllama is an adorable mascot!

    Cons

    The dysfunction in the engineering organization makes it practically impossible to get anything done. Small tasks usually turn into huge projects because of all the accumulated technical debt and bikeshedding. There's terrible development practices, QA practices, release practices, operations practices, security practices, communication, leadership, death march projects, etc. You name it, CloudLock engineering is bad...

    Advice to Management

    If a project slips once, and twice, and again, then just stop; the project is too big. Step back, break it up, and start again. Death-marches are actively destructive to the organization.

    I have been working at CloudLock full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    I've been at CloudLock for over two years now and can honestly say this is the best place I've ever worked in my seventeen years in the workforce. For me, it really is all about the environment and people. I feel comfortable being my self (bringing my strengths and opportunities for growth to the table), knowing that there are people here who will embrace what I offer & who are growing as well. Its also amazing to...

    Cons

    If I don't bring my A-game its obvious.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the context down and give your mid-management (and individual contributors) the opportunity to lead.

    I worked at CloudLock full-time

    Pros

    if you like to have no work life balance this is the place.

    Cons

    it really was one of the worst places I've ever worked at. First of all, as sad as it sounds, if you are not Jewish you really don't stand much chance. Exec team thinks they know it all where in reality this is their first time at such a role. Terrible place over all. Do yourselves a favor and never work here.

    Advice to Management

    be honest. TRUST is much more important than you think.

      I worked at CloudLock

      Pros

      My past job was the type of work u could learn quickly and sufficiently

      Cons

      The manager showed favoritism and ultimately got caught and terminated due to her ways of handling situations not according to policy she sometimes took matters in her own hands as well as fabricated stories

      I have been working at CloudLock part-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      A lot of companies talk about great cultures and transparency and a lot of other corporate jargon, but I can honestly say after being at CloudLock for more than a year and 1/2 now this stuff is actually really true here. There is no "ivory tower" of the executives and senior leaders - everyone is accessible and helpful and giving of their time. The people here are incredibly smart and some of the kindest folks you will...

      Cons

      Like any start-up that is growing really fast, we probably need more improvements on certain processes and tools. We have a lot of the latest tech in development, but could probably stand to use some in other areas of the organization.

      Advice to Management

      Keep insisting that ll new hires are more than just skill fits but culture fits too - growing when everyone is aligned is really fun and the work shows it means something in the end results too.

      It is a pleasure to work at CloudLock, from top to bottom it shows that everyone is truly focused and devoted to the success of the company. Great Product, Great People, Great Place.

      Cons

      I honestly can't think of any cons, it is truly a pleasure to work at CloudLock. Fast pace company and industry, I'm looking forward for the ride.

      Advice to Management

      Keep focused on being the best, keep hiring people who you believe in the company. Focus on growing without settling. I truly believe in our founders and the decisions they make.

      Pros

      CloudLock is a dedicated team of highly skilled, innovative, agile and collaborative people. We have a lot of fun while working our tails off. The "no a-hole policy" is totally true. Like all companies we experience some turnover, but to me that's a good thing! CloudLock is not for the faint of heart. You will be empowered to go above and beyond on a daily basis and that challenge can be too much for some.

      Cons

      With growth come logistical challenges especially with our team spread across the globe. I look forward to the team finding creative ways to continue to be cohesive and connected.

      Advice to Management

      Keep it up!
