    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    * A lot of people are great, you will make friends * Office location is great (unfortunately you will only be there on Fridays and there is not enough space for everyone) * Macbook is a good perk * Cloudy Lunch on a Friday is a great way to meet your colleagues * Pool table, table tennis, xbox, playstation all in the office * Easy to get funded to do almost any cert you want * Unlimited holiday * Personal development...

    Cons

    *Deep breath* * You will end up on a boring bodyshopped project, as much as management says it's not bodyshopping, you will work with other companies in mixed teams * You will spend a lot of your time building a data centre in AWS, not actually using the latest technologies (on the plus side you will become an S3 expert) * You won't get promoted within 6 months despite what the recruitment team tells you * You won't...

    Advice to Management

    * Listen to your employees more, when a question is upvoted at a Q&A don't say "people don't think that" or act shocked that it got asked. Clearly people want an answer if it got upvoted * Answer the question in the Q&A, don't just talk about how lucky people are to work there * Stop making up false reasons for not paying people market rate, just admit you don't have the budget, the people working here are grownups...

    Lots of positives in the “Pros” statement - thanks for taking the time to be honest about that. You list many things I also enjoy, although my backhand table tennis spin could use some work. On the “Cons”, thanks also for documenting your thoughts. It’s never easy to reply to anonymous ...

    Pros

    "Unlimited" time off within reason Can be fully remote if you want You get to work with a lot of cool tech

    Cons

    There's been restructuring going on within senior management for the last 6ish months since Relus was acquired. Some senior engineers have also been leaving for better opportunities, which I don't fault them for since it doesn't seem like there's a clear vision for what we're doing. Granted, this review is getting created at a time where "apparently" all of this is going to get answered, but it doesn't make it that much...

    Advice to Management

    It seems like you all are coming up with answers to pretty much everything that I listed in "Cons", so hopefully that's the answer everyone is looking for.

    I worked at Cloudreach full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexible work arrangements, snacks/beer at offices, worked with some smart folks on engagements. After a few projects under your belt you can leave for better comp to a more stable company. Some unique projects (but need to be lucky to get staffed on one). TGIF was a nice touch.

    Cons

    Upon the acquisition of Relus there has been a huge uptick in staff aug projects. This has already caused burn out. Internal promotions seems to be based on tenure, not talent. The tenured cloudreachers promoted to the “Leader” roles are protective of the company and not their people. It is apparent that most of the internal promotions to “Leaders” had never proved they can be a people manager and are now just...

    Advice to Management

    Sales org needs more strategic direction on which opportunities to go after and not just the low hanging fruit (staff aug thrown from AWS). If the company is going to grow quickly and hit revenue numbers - be competitive with salaries and bring in talent with consulting AND technical backgrounds. Hire more external, experienced managers to North America.
