    Pros

    None . The company is nothing what they promote it to be . Senior management think they can treat less senior staff as they want whilst use other senior members to cover their backs .

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting and listening to the concerns that your staff have rather than turning a blind eye . The company is dropping staff day by day as people are realising its not a great place to be there's no support from management and lack of actually being a team .

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

    Pros

    Old product is still the best and has some mileage left in it.
    Still some potential for making money but its a fight more difficult than it needs to be.
    List of clients is good, but only from old existing business.
    Safe company but expect to be doing the same job year after year

    Cons

    Management are ineffective and are waiting for IPO.
    No career progression unless you are very good at politics.
    Very little new business.
    No team ethos, everyone is looking after themselves.
    Different departments have different targets which unfortunately do not work together for the common good.
    Software testing is poor and bugs have caused serious downtimes in new products.

    Advice to Management

    Either go IPO and get out or don't and get back to running the company properly.
    Remember staff do talk to each other and things said to one person are passed on to others.
    Why is it old ex-employees know more about whats going on than internal staff?

    Pros

    GREAT colleagues, good vibe in the office, product is great and easy to sell

    Cons

    There are way too many processes for such a young company. Things should still run more smoothly considering how old the company is. Not enough team building

    Advice to Management

    I don't think US management would agree 100% how things are being handled in UK. There need to be more team meetings in place, we basically only get together twice a year which is not enough. Companies can only run through teams!!

    Pros

    Hard work is recognized, people are generally smart and fun to work with, upper management has a clear vision and is approachable.

    Cons

    None that are worth mentioning in the public, generally very well structured, given it's a relatively young company which grows fast.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep the sales operation processes slim, don't overburden your sales guys with too much of admin work and help them to focus on selling.

    Pros

    My group and Director was great - very open and collaborative.

    Cons

    Centrify is another victim of a Thoma Bravo take-over. We were all at the sales meeting in July and were told great things were coming. Then, in August 80% of the team was laid-off with little warning and almost no severance. Many good people, including the CMO have left and people are frustrated and looking for the next opportunity.

    Pros

    Technology solving a real problem

    Cons

    Sale to Thoma Bravo was a let down to many. Price was perceived as way below market value since both Duo and Beyond Trust were sold at much higher price. Company being split up is devaluing the holistic story that once was.
