      Great place to start your career

      Pros

      Unlimited Vacation Lots of travel opportunities Great development opportunities Work with the latest technologies Leader in their space Great Work/Life balance Cloudreach is a place where it is up to you to make your career. They will support you in what you want to learn and where you want to go in your career, but it is up to you to expend the energy to get there. The people here have been amazing and friendly. The culture is welcoming and the international kickoff parties have been some of the best I have ever been to. The work/life balance has been fantastic and I would recommend this to anyone young who wants to both travel and develop their career.

      Cons

      Sometimes chaotic due to being a rapidly growing company. Salary is midrange and benefits are still being worked on.

      Cloudreach Response

      Thanks for sharing your feedback. We appreciate you highlighting our friendly HR team and the benefits we offer to our Cloudreachers. You mention Cloudreach is ‘mis-managed and full of politics’ however, on our latest employee engagement survey, management favourability scored highly at 82% so this does not seem to be a view that is shared company-wide. We are continuing to support management to be brilliant leaders of our people but we are sorry to hear that you have left with this impression and wish you all the best.

      Pros

      Some good team members and senior engineers

      Cons

      Not a self sustainable company with no vision and no strategy. Not a responsible management. No work from home option. Work on stat holidays,weekends and evening shifts (with comp off ofcourse but not so attractive after a certain period of time). No innovation. Most team members are not great to work with. Not enough qualified managers around to help people

      Great offerings, Poor delivery.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Company is growing at an exponential pace, due to key strategic partnerships and being first to market.

      Cons

      Scrappy middle-managers are making their way up the leadership chain, preventing anyone from attempting to be creative, taking risks and thinking outside of the box (aka innovating). Instead, they need an army of procedural drones to carry out a predetermined set of operational procedures.

      Pros

      - Culture is awesome - Coworkers are incredible - Great office location and events - Opportunities to work on fun projects - Personal development budget

      Cons

      - The global compensation review was promised around a year ago. Still nothing! Some salaries are as much as 50% under the current market rates! - Some management positions have been filled with people with no previous management experience - It seems like we are struggling to adapt to our growth - No real career progression path. If you want to move on to a better role, you gotta either change BU or go into management

      Pros

      When you boil it down, Cloudreach is a company that puts their employees first! Always! They are strong believers that company success starts with their people. Whether it is a company kick-off event in Europe, the office Xbox, the beer fridge, career opportunities, cloudy lunches or the amazing office locations, Cloudreach is continually thinking of innovative ways to invest in their employees. They care. A lot! Not only is it a great place to work, you will be working with some amazing people and have some amazing career opportunities. Everyone in Cloudreach is unique, diverse and very easy to work with! You instantly feel a part of the team and a member of the Cloudy family. If you are keen for international work opportunities, gaining professional certifications, attending our Cloudy University, taking advantage of our mentorship program or being a member of a leading tech company, Cloudreach is for you.

      Cons

      There are not many really. It is truly a great place to work. Having come from a more Corporate or well established company, it has been a bit of a transition getting used to the start-up culture. However I have come to realize, the culture is what makes this company. It makes it a fun place to work and motivates its employees to work hard and play hard.

      Growing with good people

      Sep 15, 2015 - Devops Engineer in Vancouver, BC
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Vancouver is full of startups but Cloudreach is unique as they're a small to medium sized company based in Scotland that has the feel of a startup. What does this mean? They're really keen on getting the right people in the right positions. It hasn't reached the size where you become a number. The interview process is extensive as I had to go through 7 interviews before receiving an offer. It's about the right fit personality wise. The office in Vancouver is very relaxed and they take care of their employees really well. Friday's the entire office goes out for lunch paid by the company. Great location in Gastown. Great team of individuals who go out of their way to help each other.

      Cons

      Some would say working an evening shift one week a month can be considered a downside for some. Likely those with families. You're compensated by having your dinner paid for. This is especially good in the Gas Town area with its abundance of good places to eat.

      Amazing, innovative, and fast-growing company

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Extremely friendly and warm environment. Get to work with the most up-to-date, current cloud technologies. Company encourages personal growth, and make sure you are happy with the work you do on a day to day basis or help you find tasks that are better suited to your strengths. Very fast growing company which is getting lots of recognition and praise. Lots of incentives such as weekly company lunches, quarterly trips to places all over the world, office stocked with food and drinks. Very trendy office including game consoles, pool tables, lounging area.

      Cons

      As stated in the Pros, company is fairly new (~7 or so years) but growing very fast, so there is quite a lot of process changes that occur. But nothing too unmanageable. Haven't experienced any real Cons besides that.
