Pros

Everyone at Cloudmark is competent to do their jobs. The core product of the company is an important service and the employees are proud to be involved.

Cons

Everyone is bright and opinionated, so technical discussions can take a while to resolve. Sometimes things are made more complicated than they need to be. Methodical approaches are more appreciated than creative solutions.

Advice to Management

Better documentation of the company's knowledge assets needs to be required by everyone. More efficient and easier researched technical information system is required for the long-term survival of the company. The technical information of the company is often held in one or two people's heads and/or stored in random, badly linked and index "wiki" pages. When staff changes over there is a significant learning curve for anyone assuming the needed duties.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The people and the fact that we do something that makes a difference. Since we're a start-up, it's really easy and fast to invoke positive change. Senior management is very accessible and are the type of people you would enjoy having a drink with.

    Cons

    Not the type of benefits you would get from a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    Tell us more often about what is happening in the company (e.g.) financials, deals in the works, etc.

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

    Pros

    Company is focused on very cool area in technology (anti spam & threat management for email, mobile, messaging). Good culture- people generally work together well across functions. Company lacked a bit of innovation over last few years but seems to be kicking back into high gear. So far, new direction looks positive. Good work/life balance but work is challenging and stimulating for the most part. Free snacks / drinks are a bonus, and generous benefits.

    Cons

    Noisy office during ball games across the street. A lot of the functionality tends to be delivered in the field which is not the most efficient model.

    Advice to Management

    New CEO seems to be doing good job rallying company but it's early days. Objective setting has been unrealistic in past years- hopefully 2017 is an exception, as goals appear to be more achievable. Be careful about trying to build new products for new markets which are sold to new customers- too hard to do and company has failed here a couple of times, wasting some money.
