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

    Pros

    They actively encourage and require certifications for major cloud platforms. This helps employee familiarity and skill and they will gladly pay for study materials. Lots of cultures represented in a very international office. Meal vouchers for lunches and weekly lunch out as an office.

    Cons

    Currently in a growth phase and looking to snag big contracts, so there's a tendency to accept whatever jobs and terms come along. Job roles and titles are defined but rather fluid, and progression paths are unclear. Re-location package isn't the best.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let us turn into a high-tech staffing agency.

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

    Pros

    There are still some great people at Cloudreach below the senior management level who go above and beyond to try and make this a great place to work. Despite the nice to haves being reduced there are still many perks to work at Cloudreach. The company has ambition and aims to be a market leader. Middle management are still worth following.

    Cons

    The hypergrowth has diluted the feel of working for an exciting start up, as such it has become like any other big business without the bonus of established routines, processes and equivalent renumeration. The company has shifted from being European led to being American run (this is only a con if you prefer the former) with a change in focus, priorities and leadership style. Although I was not aiming for any promotions...

    Advice to Management

    When I joined the company everyone around me said it was a great place to work. Now it feels like the only people who say this are the higher echelons of the business to the point it feels Orwellian. This, I feel, is the wrong way round and consideration should be made of what worked previously and how it can be infused with the current direction.
