    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    So many good things!!! An amazing place to work, wonderful culture, and the most fantastic people. Smart, friendly, and the Cloudy Values are wonderful

    Cons

    Rapidly growing company is starting to experience some growing pains due to transition between a startup-sized company and a larger enterprise. The chaos and progress gaps can be frustrating at time.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose focus on your people. The people make the culture, and keep Cloudreach the amazing place to work that it is.

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

    Pros

    The leadership team really cares about the people and there is a huge investment of both time and money into the culture and taking care of staff. Despite huge growth targets, the company continues to invest in regular offsites to bring global staff together (almost all expenses paid), welcoming office spaces with plenty of supplies, food, drink etc, and a dedicated Learning and Development team to promote career development...

    Cons

    It is easy to work too hard because there is always more work to do and it's interesting and challenging work - there is still very much a startup mentality in that sense. It's down to the individual to put their own limits in place and make sure they are keeping a good balance - it is a mature environment where people are trusted to set sensible boundaries. Perhaps some of the younger staff members struggle a bit with...

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that we continue to focus on treating people well and creating a pleasant place to work. We should continue to think about what leadership means at Cloudreach and ensure that all leaders are upholding these expectations.

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

    Pros

    The people are the number one reason to work for Cloudreach, everyone is friendly, easy to work with and great to have a beer with after work. Opportunities - as a fast growing company there's lots of chance to get stuck in on interesting projects and pick up a lot of responsibility. Exciting clients - we work with some of the biggest companies around the world. Approachable management - most of management eat lunch...

    Cons

    Growing pains - fast growing company inevitably leads to issues with recruitment and processes. Delegation - Management needs to delegate more, there are too many bottlenecks and overworked managers. Salary and bonuses.

    Pros

    - Excellent work environment (offices, laptops...) - Great mix of different type of characters (especially between tech and non tech people) - You feel that the company takes care of you (perks + social / staff events) - Flexibility with hours and possibility to work remotely (not for every jobs though) - Social aspect of working for Cloudreach. Not only the company organises events on a regular basis but the staff...

    Cons

    - Limited visibility on career progression. The options are there but you need to dig yourself to find out. - Its a growing company. Expect growing pains from times to times and remember that you are also being hired to improve organisation as you can !

    Advice to Management

    - Keep the culture alive ! (which is something the management is very aware of. ) - Communication about internal opportunities and career progression needs improvment

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Cloudreach

      Pros

      I've worked for many companies who believe that they have a strong culture but I have never seen anything like what I have seen at Cloudreach. Every employee is a shining example of what a strong company culture is. Every employee is hugely talented and knows their area of expertise extremely well. Above anything else, everyone I've met so far are just genuinely nice people who will help you wherever possible. ...

      Cons

      Because the company is growing (but is still small) its benefits packages are lacking compared to what is in the industry today. The pension package is pretty small, the cloudy university is basic and really only caters for lower level accreditations (AWS associated etc.). There is no death in service insurance etc. However, Cloudreach invest heavily in benefits that are aimed at promoting and growing the company culture,...

      Pros

      -Amazing flexibility -Really talented and fun employees -Great company culture -Interesting projects -Lots of travelling, if you want -Huge effort to keep a good work-life balance -Uncapped holidays ( for real!) (EU and US and CA) -Support of personal development, career path

      Cons

      -Salary and bonuses -Projects can be overwhelming, management tries to fix issues, but sometimes it takes time. ( But the projects are changing in 2-6 months) -The company is growing extensively, at the moment it is facing big challenges, how to handle it's current size. It will be all worked out after a while.

      Advice to Management

      -Keep a closer look on salaries and bonuses to follow the market. Cloud computing is one of the hottest skill in 2016.

      Pros

      - *The* leading company in the cloud SI space. No one else comes close, no matter what they might claim. No legacy hardware nonsense, just pure cloud computing at all stages of the lifecycle. - Cloudreach hire smart people. They're also friendly and interesting. This makes it a fun and enjoyable place to work. Not seen a particular type of problem before? No worries, throw enough smart people at it and we can make...

      Cons

      The cons get eroded all the time. A few years back, perhaps our benefits were a bit 'tight', as was typical of a small company focused on growth. These days that's no longer true and we're leading on benefits like uncapped holiday. It's worth noting that the fun of working in a growing company does of course have some counter-balance in that there's always a *lot* to be done....

      Advice to Management

      We've got a hot two years or so in front of us, let's make sure we capitalise on it and keep up the incredible growth.

      Switched on, friendly people. If you want to grow as a professional and learn every day, this is the place for you. Lots of opportunities, perks and general niceness. Couldn't recommend it enough.

      Only the challenges of a fast growing company, but that's part of the fun!

      Pros

      Opportunities to develop a career in cloud computing. Genuine, down to earth and very friendly team. Company culture. Rapidly expanding company, lots of opportunities for those up for a challenge. Lots of perks, spot bonus and annual kick off trip are the best.

      Cons

      You are expected to work hard, always busy. Growing company, so you have to figure out lots on your own.

      -Phenomenal work flexibility and benefits (work from home/remote, open offices with amenities, quickly responding HR to any benefits questions, Mac laptops, free lunch every Friday, etc etc) -Culture/camaraderie: people clearly care about colleagues, are quick to welcome and include new joiners, Slack channels are used effectively to build community, keep teams in touch, and keep fun in the workplace. -Tons of opportunity...

      Cons

      -As a rapidly growing company, Cloudreach changes quickly: if you don't handle change well or expect things to stay the way they have always been, this environment is not for you

      Advice to Management

      Keep going! Change is to be expected from a company that has doubled in size every year. Focus on keeping that transparency with your team, delivering great work, and promoting the Cloudy values to current and prospective employees.
