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

    Pros

    Work/Life balance People are passionate, intelligent and easy to work with Working in an interesting field that is impacting the industry as a whole Growing like crazy with opportunities for growth into lead positions Open communication from leadership team Fast paced environment with the flexibility - get your work done and you won't be micromanaged

    Cons

    Growing pains are a real thing, but worth it if you want to be a part of a company that is gaining competitive advantage and breaking through tech barriers. No company is perfect but at least here they're working to alleviate the pains.

    I worked at Cloudreach full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    • Amazing people and even more awesome colleagues • Flexibility & working from home. • Opportunities to progress in a different direction. • There's so much learning potential in all different areas. • The perks & benefits, they're unparalleled from anything I've seen before. Laptop, phone, unlimited holidays (within reason), quarterlies, yearly kickoffs, weekly free lunch, snacks & drinks, and much more....

    Cons

    • Generally a 1-2-1 is promised every week, but after a while it felt like this happened every few months instead (2017-2018). • Sometimes an inquiry to management via your manager would take a while (not the manager's fault), in one case it took almost 8 months to get a response after chasing (2017). • A certain colleague in another department did not have the best of relationship, they were constantly trying to undermine...

    Pros

    Excellent work-life balance and flexibility. It seems to be only limited by the clients, but that is understandable as CR is a consulting company. Interesting and challenging technologies and projects. Technical skills development support and promotion. Easy access to the know-how gathered by CR consultants. Excellent knowledge base. Great atmosphere, it is a pleasure to be in the office and work with the...

    Cons

    Company policy requires the use of Google Office Suite, and its limitations impact my productivity and prevent me from utilising the skills I have acquired over 15-years of work with MS Office suite. Frustrating! Not sure about career development opportunities, on the one hand, the company grows, and there should be plenty of opportunities, on the other nothing is clear about the process. In general, the benefits...

    I see we are becoming a corporation, and I understand why, but please keep existing culture unaffected as much as it is possible.

    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time

    Pros

    Been with Cloudreach several years. It has plenty more ups than downs but sometimes struggles under the weight of its own growth; it surges regularly, then needs to spend time balancing. If newbies can get through the first 6-12 months they generally do well and form very strong bonds. There is a distinct character type works at Cloudreach, it's easy to spot. Usually outgoing and smart; it's extremely rare to find people...

    Cons

    Cloudreach can often be it's own worst enemy. Moving too fast, a desire to do things in a certain way, sometimes lack of process. Compensation is finally being addressed after a few years being behind the curve, though I would have preferred shares. Free beer and lunch is fine to a point but would like to see more meaningful grown up benefits. Deep expertise is sometimes hard to find, but the smart people have an attitude...

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

    Pros

    You could never get bored at a company like Cloudreach. The company is growing really quickly and there are so many opportunities for people with the right outlook. It does take patience and maturity sometimes, given the amount of initiatives underway at any given time and the pace of change, but it's been my experience that people are judged on the quality of their ideas and how they deliver against these. The...

    Cons

    There are so many things to do and so many well meaning people trying to push in all sorts of directions, sometimes initiatives get jammed up by one another. I have also seen some people not make it at Cloudreach because they are not able to successfully assert themselves and get the development they are looking for. This is not a place for wallflowers.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the positive energy. Continue to go after the interesting work, leading with technology.

    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time

    Pros

    Exposed to great tech. Ability to make a real difference. Plenty of learning and career opportunities as the company continues to grow. Culture is great, incredibly talented colleagues. Great customers and exciting projects. Incredible growth, who doesn't want to be part of a winning team!

    Cons

    There are some tools and processes which are only being improved recently. Most people are passionate about innovation and change, and aren't very forgiving of that, but inn fairness, when growing at this pace, it's easy to outgrow processes very quickly. Some other areas like the "formal" career progression paths need sorting (happening now).

    Advice to Management

    Keep inspiring people to do what they do. Be genuine, for better or worse.
