    Pros

    Super friendly and helpful people everywhere you go, the company's got some exciting future plans

    Cons

    Need to solidify the training process. More focus on hands-on training and less so on online courses or certifications.

    Pros

    The individual contributors and engineering talent is there; if you are just starting out your career, Cloudreach peers will help you in any way they can because we genuinely want you to succeed, in spite of leadership. Unlimited time off and flexible work schedule allows you to take care of personal life and relationships comfortably, without affecting work. People are friendly, and enjoy spending time with each...

    Cons

    Ever since a new CEO was brought on in August 2018, a few organizational restructurings and pivots have happened. Since then, the company has completely lost any semblance of an identity in who it is, and what it stands for. A few examples are illustrated below: - Grassroots campaigns like the Alliance for Partnerships and Inclusion (API) has completely lost focus, and pretty much fallen apart due to lack of interest...

    Advice to Management

    LOYAL; Listen or you always lose. Listen to those who are leaving, listen to those who have been with Cloudreach a long time to see why people have been sticking around. If you don't pay us enough, at least keep the culture that has fostered so much personal growth and amazing technical solutions that have come through. Don't shy away from getting to know individuals who are the most vocal. Also, be honest and transparent....

    I worked at Cloudreach full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great people, historically before Relus. - Great focus on growth and development for IC - Opportunities to grow with company, if you know who/where to look - Historically, great projects where we are doing innovative work worth talking about.

    Cons

    Let's just put it out there - Relus was a bad choice. I left Cloudreach primiarly because of what I saw happening post Relus acquisition. If Relus had never been acquired, I would still be at Cloudreach. The Blackstone acquisition is also a likely factor in causing some of the following cons. Having said that, I think the Relus culture and leadership brought on both were bigger factors across the board in letting...

    Advice to Management

    If we had a time machine I would say to go back and never acquire Relus. In lieu of magic, cut Relus leadership out to make a clear statement to the "Vintage" Cloudreach organization that they have heard their complaints about Relus and are willing to take action. Relus was a bad choice, can't we just say it out loud at this point?

    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They actively encourage and require certifications for major cloud platforms. This helps employee familiarity and skill and they will gladly pay for study materials. Lots of cultures represented in a very international office. Meal vouchers for lunches and weekly lunch out as an office.

    Cons

    Currently in a growth phase and looking to snag big contracts, so there's a tendency to accept whatever jobs and terms come along. Job roles and titles are defined but rather fluid, and progression paths are unclear. Re-location package isn't the best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let us turn into a high-tech staffing agency.

    Pros

    We are very well looked after, and there is a great attitude from everyone throughout the entire org chart from the top down. Work/life balance is a real priority that is taken seriously. If you have some initiative and are willing to innovate, you will be supported in your endeavours.

    Cons

    Working on-site with clients means I tend to miss out on some of the delights and luxuries provided back at the office!
