    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...

    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.

    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...
