    I have been working at CipherCloud part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I really like my team, and the projects I got. My manager a great guy was patient and let me work through the projects at my own pace as well as gave me tips to improve upon and how to manage his boss. Each time I moved on, I was given a set of projects to choose from. The project terms were short, from couple hours to couple weeks, which I appreciated. I enjoyed the team environment!

    Cons

    I had some issues with paychecks and lack of flexibility on hours and investment in software tools when I first joined. But, they overcame this. Alot of wasted food. I would regularly take left overs home for snacks and to feed to my dog

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My internship experience was really good. I think CipherCloud should invest more here with an official program.

    Pros

    Free food and parking. Coworkers mostly are nice.

    Cons

    Accepting offer from CipherCloud means you're property of company. You should expect 18 hour days, work on weekends and holidays fixing code written by freshers offshore, and a sweatshop workplace where you can be fired for suggesting the product is broken. The solution to every problem is to hire more middle managers and executives. Many employees resign shortly after they're hire. Many avoid the office and work at home. Pay is low and little equity is given to employees. Talented engineers should stay away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the employees who build the "rocket" ship for you to board it.

    Pros

    Good employees to work with but I heard it is bad culture in San Jose headquarters office

    Cons

    Executives know background of the person and wont do anything about it. Employees don't understand and have lost respect for company leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Save the company. Make hard decisions. Happy to no longer be part of it.

    Pros

    Great company. Motivated staff crushing the competition. The market leader by any measure, people, revenue, clients, etc etc etc just wish I had more days in the week to continue building this wonderful company.

    Cons

    Time difference to HQ! Need more snacks. Be nice to not have to be on so many late calls but that's the downside if any Silicon Valley company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the gloves off more. Competition takes the low road a lot.
