    I have been working at Cloudreach full-time (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.

    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

    Pros

    A particular personality type works and does well at Cloudreach - optimistic, friendly, helpful, good humoured, expert in something, always willing to learn and always looking forwards. It's this that makes it so great to work for. It's hard to believe it can get much better than this.

    Cons

    Can be hectic / overworked at times but usually in a reasonably good way. Non-stop. Some processes are a bit lacking / confusing. Some growing pains.

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the personal touch and keep the comms flowing. Stay competitive with salary etc, recruiters target Cloudreach hard to get the people. Don't drop your recruitment standards, keep hiring cloudy-fit people.

    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.

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

    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

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

    Pros

    Cloudreach is the best company I've ever worked for. It's probably the best company you'll ever work for. Why ? Not just the benefits. Those are great. Not the twice yearly company holidays , which are also cool. Nor the friday free lunches , or the flexible working environment (where possible) , where you can work remotely if you want to and your project allows it. The chances to work abroad in one of the ever-expanding...

    Cons

    It's very difficult to think of any - some growing pains as the company expands, but these are quickly addressed as time goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! There's a great mix of important info that people get to know, sensible decision making that considers the people as well as the business's needs, and a great working environment. Recruiting really talented people inspires existing staff too stretch to their level too.

    Pros

    Genuinely great team, no egos, fun, sociable, smart folk who like what they do. Flat structured with management leading by example and getting their hands as dirty as everyone else. Nice to be able to make a real impact on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Difficult to pick much fault, growing pains with all rapidly expanding businesses but generally these are recognised and plans are put in place to try to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Keep pushing the business to stay one step ahead.
