    I have been working at Mimecast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The leadership team at Mimecast is truly one of a kind - there is a very open door policy here and they are always available to support the rest of the organization.

    The culture - Free Lunch! Team outings, office rallies, very open and cool office space - it is an incredibly collaborative environment.

    The product portfolio and market presence is a major, major pro - the customer retention and growth is incredibly high, because the product WORKS.

    Cons

    Over the years there have been typical growing pains from pre-IPO to IPO, but nothing major. I really can't think of one con.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing - keep the culture as you grow!

    I worked at Mimecast full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great service and growing, Great employees and office culture

    Cons

    lack of real leadership, tendency to hire very young fresh out of college support staff for sales, director level and executive level leadership lack the knowledge of management roles. Regional Channel strategy is inherently flawed with lack of support and direction. No large Enterprise clients to speak of and lack of brand equity will slow growth in that market segment.

    Advice to Management

    Put together a real channel sales and marketing strategy to supplant competition. Fill Sales and Marketing gaping holes with experienced people and support them.

    I have been working at Mimecast full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Very friendly staff, executives included. CEO sits in the middle with everyone! Open door policy with no offices at all.
    - Pay is good, free lunches, coffee and snacks fully stocked daily.
    - Overall family feel
    - Good benefits and incentives for some departments.

    Cons

    Same concerns of any rapidly growing company. Company focus is more on sales than the teams that keep the current customers happy and continuing with the product. Understaffed in support areas. Little to no incentives if not in a sales role.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a focus more on rewarding, and acknowledging, the service delivery teams that keep the "product ship" floating even when the daily workload is rapidly increasing.

    Pros

    The people are tremendous and eager to win. The technology is top notch. A very team oriented atmosphere with plenty of room to grow your career. After going public, the buzz has been loud internally. The company has taken many steps forward in terms of putting people in places where they can reach their potential.

    Cons

    None, the company has evolved and began to mature a great deal since going public. They are putting the right people in the right places and it is showing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a leg up on the competition!

    Pros

    Outstanding product, competitive, feature rich, cutting edge in email security marketplace. Young energetic company still feels a little like a start up.

    Cons

    While the company isn't growing in size, it is changing into a "real" company as they build toward an IPO or something to take the firm to "the next level". Some of the "charm" of a startup has been replaced with the demands of hitting sales targets.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what made Mimecast great to begin with. Make sure your leaders or people you promote have that same character and concern for the employees.

    I worked at Mimecast full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This was a great place to work right out of college, lots of young people, traveled often, enjoyed myself, and it paid very well. There was also a yoga studio and gym in the office as well as a fully stocked kitchen

    Cons

    There was not much organization. Upper management was awesome but below them was not very well kept together.

    Advice to Management

    Need to keep tabs on reps a little bit more
