I've only worked at CloudLock for a short time, however I have enjoyed my tenure thus far. Probably the most pervasive attitude I get from management, other teams, and my coworkers is a desire to get better all the time. It seems that management knows the company's flaws, and actively works to improve them, not being afraid to hire new talent or try something new. Team members are consistently talking about how to improve the product, through features, fixes, or refactors. The singular focus on the product makes improving easier, and it is also refreshing, when compared to other companies that need to "pivot" or don't have a confident sense of core competencies. As a culture, there is a high focus on collaboration and community. The open floor plan and Macbook pros make collaborating around the office very easy, and the whiteboard-painted walls give people plenty of space to draw stuff out and brainstorm. A variety of collaboration tools make sharing and contributing very easy. Finally, asking for help is encouraged, and everyone is willing to answer questions/bounce ideas/provide feedback. I don't think I've been turned down or told to wait when asking for help. The soft perks of the company are great too. Free gym on premises, beer fridge, snacks, video games, ping pong and relaxed work-from-home/vacation policy all contribute to making it a pretty nice place to work.
We have satellite offices in the UK, Israel and Ukraine, and cross-location communication can be a bit tough, with both timezones and language barrier being occasionally difficult. In the Waltham office, we're split between two suites, which limits the cross-team collaboration, but there have been steps taken to address this issue. From an engineering side, there are some typical start-up, and even not-so-startup growing pains, like little documentation, some confusing noodle-y code, gaps in systems/infrastructure, etc. As I said previously, however, management knows about these and has taken steps to address those issues.

CloudLock Leadership understands what it means to take care of their employees. The benefits are great and very generous. There is a tremendous amount of "upside" and career growth opportunities.
Not so much a con, more about the reality for working for a successful start-up, there will be growing pains. CloudLock's tremendous growth (customer base, employee count, etc.) presents challenges on all fronts, but I am confident in Leadership and think the future is very bright.Continue reading
Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?
