    Pros

    Great technology ... you get lot of opportunities to learn and implement the things which you didn't learnt the technology implementations in the past experience.

    Cons

    Process needs to be improved as it is a start up company. Any product should go 5 years of product life cycle to become a very good product in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just to concentrate on the stabilization of the product ...that's where all the improvements comes with money from the customers.

    I have been working at CipherCloud full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    They give you salary. That's the only plus point/

    Cons

    Everything. HR team writes reviews every time the glassdoor reviews goes down. Managers are clueless about what they want and there are many projects that got scratched down because of that.

    They have no concept of work-life balance. They monitor your naukri activities. Leaving at 7 PM is considered as leaving early. I have to work in odd hours for many days continuously. Management doesn't care about the health of the employees. Appraisal rating is based on the number of hours you work in the office. Join at your own risk. Sigh.. I am still in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be ethical and learn how to be professional.

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

    Pros

    People are very bright, helpful and supportive. Company does a lot of things that show that it really cares about people. Complete flexibility of schedule and a lot of autonomy. Everything moves at a very fast pace with a focus on accomplishment rather than politics.
    The atmosphere is very positive in part due to the success the company is having with very rapid growth. CipherCloud had to move 3 times in a year due to employee expansion at HQ and last quarters are very nice with lots of natural light and great views from the 11th floor.
    Being at the intersection of two major technology trends (cloud computing and security) means that there is a lot of opportunity for the company.
    Benefits are good. Like most startups there are free snacks, drinks and frozen lunches.

    Cons

    Things move quickly which means many changes of direction and limited processes. If you like to make sure that everything is going to go the way you plan, this isn't the right environment for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work
