    I have been working at VeloCloud full-time

    Pros

    Hardworking employees that are smart, kind, and helpful
    Excellent company culture - team building events, parties, happy hour
    Transparency - it's good to have a pulse on your company
    Free food - but it's good food like fresh fruit, various coffee machines, a million snacks, - which is different from bad free food(cheetos) which they also have

    Cons

    It's a start up, so sometimes a process or documentation isn't there. Guidance is available but you just need to ask.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the culture change! Grow fast, but grow smart!

    I have been working at VeloCloud full-time

    Pros

    Loved the work culture. People are friendly, always willing to help you out, the environment is fun and communicative.
    There's always room to learn and make productive progress every day.
    The Leadership Team is completely in touch with the business. This is by far the most employee friendly company that I have worked in.
    Interns are made to work on real time projects and are also encouraged to talk to the clients (which isn't allowed in other companies)

    Cons

    Has to start campus recruitment.
    Attend job fairs.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to bring in more interns to all possible teams.

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

    Pros

    Dynamic company; Growing quickly; Talented motivated team; Coworkers are grown-ups with experience and no sense of entitlement; Flat organization curve; Minimal bureaucracy. Positive work space. Benefits are tech industry standard.

    Cons

    Demands full commitment of your time. Open floor plan is not for everybody--especially if you prefer quiet. Companies growing at this rate can be chaotic, not for those who cannot adapt and pivot quickly.d

    Pros

    Company has an excellent culture. Great set of people to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Please keep up the great job!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Flexible hours, no hours, you don't have to work at all. Pretend your dog is sick and you can get time off. Use your kids as an excuse. Unlimited time off! Inside Sales guys/gal can go to the bars during lunch and disappear all week during business hours and management does not care.

    Cons

    No accountability & it's a zoo with the inside sales team, they think they run the company. No management, the poor performers get rewarded. Fake culture of brown nosing.

    I have been working at VeloCloud full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first experience working for a Silicon Valley start-up and so far VeloCloud has not disappointed. Work is interesting, challenging and it's a fun group of people to work with.

    Cons

    Be prepared to dig in. There will be days when a lot will be asked of you.

    Advice to Management

    Great job so far finding the right product-market fit. Continue to remain agile and focus on execution in the coming months and years

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

    Pros

    +Ability to Learn & Innovate

    +VeloCloudians care about each other and sincerely want to help each other both in work and in life

    +Best combination of the brightest people who are focused on the same goal

    +Ability to have an Impact. Since we've been around 4 years, we are now laying foundations for growing which provides ability to be creative

    +We work hard together and make time for regular activities to keep our team close-knit (ex: Basketball, Cricket, Indoor Soccer, Release celebrations, Friday happy hours, etc.)

    +Eat together (catered lunch daily and all the drinks and snacks you can dream)
    +Drink together
    +Laugh together

    +Wake up wanting to "go to work"

    Cons

    -With Success comes stress related to volume of projects and interesting work that you want to work on and do not have the time. We are actively working on this by growing the team at the right velocity which can seem to be a slow and thorough process.

    Advice to Management

    Continue your focus on culture and caring about your employees. It shows and is appreciated.

    I have been working at VeloCloud full-time

    Pros

    The team at VeloCloud is amazing, top to bottom in every department. From Customer Support to Sales to Marketing to Engineering, it's stacked with top quality talent. One of the best parts of working at VeloCloud is the chance to learn and grow from these amazing people. And when we're not solving problems together, we are playing softball and cricket and having happy hours and fun together.

    Cons

    Like any successful startup, pressure is high and hours are sometimes long.

    Advice to Management

    Don't compromise on the quality of people as the company is growing quickly.
