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

    Pros

    Just in my short time here I've made so many new friends, I've grown to expect a certain standard of professionalism and openness (simply because other companies I've been at before have PALED in comparison). Some benefits that have absolutely changed my life include: Easily accessible senior management Flexibility to get done what you need to get done (it's this flexibility that makes CR excel far past their...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow, but keep to your cloudy roots, continue to be energetic and open about the good things and never stop sharing the good, bad, and the ugly with your teams

    Pros

    Work/Life balance People are passionate, intelligent and easy to work with Working in an interesting field that is impacting the industry as a whole Growing like crazy with opportunities for growth into lead positions Open communication from leadership team Fast paced environment with the flexibility - get your work done and you won't be micromanaged

    Cons

    Growing pains are a real thing, but worth it if you want to be a part of a company that is gaining competitive advantage and breaking through tech barriers. No company is perfect but at least here they're working to alleviate the pains.

      I worked at Cloudreach

      Pros

      Unlimited time off Quarterly events were fun but not sure how long they will continue for the leadership was beating around the bush about it Some interesting projects

      Cons

      New people fundamentala seemed rushed new levels were all over the place Finance and expense operations need work should be better for a consulting company where majority of us have to travel on a weekly basis and are the bread and butter of the organization vision is all over the place Leadership is disconnected

      Pros

      They value tech talent and are willing to invest in tech training

      Cons

      The leadership team does not know how to lead. There are many biases and disriminatory practices by cetain 'leaders'. Instead of addressing the issues, these people continue to get reassigned to newly created positions with goofy titles and fake responsibilities.

      Advice to Management

      Get rid of fakers in leadership roles. Listen to your valued employees when they express concerns about lack of direction. These intelligent and talented people are in high demand - pay attention to them or they will be gone.

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

      Pros

      None. Googling for solutions is their tool. They know how to use the search engine well.

      Cons

      Mere certification does not help. This, they fail to understand. The Cloud Architects and the Lead Cloud Architect I worked with might know only about AWS cloud., but, they lack to have a whole Application knowledge, Application Integration knowledge, Data structures, etc.. and will not be able to help for refactoring Applications. All young folks with certifications and they think they know everything. This is wrong....

      Advice to Management

      Define "Cloudy" well and implement it or reflect upon it really. Talking one thing and doing one thing is ridiculous. Hire really experienced folks and not just young folks who lack manners and just manage to get some certifications and think they know it all. Very arrogant and poor manners and such consultants are a disgrace to the Software Engineering world.

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

      Pros

      Flexible work arrangements, snacks/beer at offices, worked with some smart folks on engagements. After a few projects under your belt you can leave for better comp to a more stable company. Some unique projects (but need to be lucky to get staffed on one). TGIF was a nice touch.

      Cons

      Upon the acquisition of Relus there has been a huge uptick in staff aug projects. This has already caused burn out. Internal promotions seems to be based on tenure, not talent. The tenured cloudreachers promoted to the “Leader” roles are protective of the company and not their people. It is apparent that most of the internal promotions to “Leaders” had never proved they can be a people manager and are now just...

      Advice to Management

      Sales org needs more strategic direction on which opportunities to go after and not just the low hanging fruit (staff aug thrown from AWS). If the company is going to grow quickly and hit revenue numbers - be competitive with salaries and bring in talent with consulting AND technical backgrounds. Hire more external, experienced managers to North America.

      Pros

      Seemingly transparent goals shared regularly. Trying hard to put structure in place.

      Cons

      Several ‘leaders’ are far from just that and put on a very different front when in front of the company and the CEO. Expect constant changes to your role and compensation measurement; you’ll never know what to expect. Layers upon layers of management with few do actually do the work; burning good people out.

      Advice to Management

      Leadership 101: praise in public / criticize in private. Allow line staff review the leadership; may give you eye-opening insight.
