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

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

    Pros

    My cons section reads as a catty (but fair) review – so here’s the things I’ve appreciated at my time at Cloudreach: • Above anything else is the social aspect. I’ve built some strong friendships with fun people, who I will always stay in touch with when we all leave. • I’ve operated with complete autonomy and carved out niches for myself with clients. • Kickoffs used to be great and extravagant. • If you want to...

    Cons

    I joined Cloudreach with the promise that the company was rife with opportunities, was growing organically (for the most part) and would provide me with a breadth of experience with the latest cloud technologies. Unfortunately, the reality that myself and many others experienced was the inverse. To understand the problems with the company, it’s best to look at what’s changed: • In 2017 Blackstone purchased Cloudreach...

    Advice to Management

    For the love of all things holy, replace the middle management, especially those who have had masses of negative feedback. They are a cancer, and are fantastic at eroding employee morale. A lot do not have the experience whether in a technical capacity or in a "soft-skills" capacity, and manager training cannot fix this. Stop listening and not "hearing" what we say. Yes, being reactive and applying change is hard...

    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

    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...

    Pros

    Just in my short time here I've made so many new friends, I've grown to expect a certain standard of professionalism and openness (simply because other companies I've been at before have PALED in comparison). Some benefits that have absolutely changed my life include: Easily accessible senior management Flexibility to get done what you need to get done (it's this flexibility that makes CR excel far past their...

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow, but keep to your cloudy roots, continue to be energetic and open about the good things and never stop sharing the good, bad, and the ugly with your teams

      I worked at Cloudreach

      Pros

      Unlimited time off Quarterly events were fun but not sure how long they will continue for the leadership was beating around the bush about it Some interesting projects

      Cons

      New people fundamentala seemed rushed new levels were all over the place Finance and expense operations need work should be better for a consulting company where majority of us have to travel on a weekly basis and are the bread and butter of the organization vision is all over the place Leadership is disconnected
