    Pros

    Great technology ... you get lot of opportunities to learn and implement the things which you didn't learnt the technology implementations in the past experience.

    Cons

    Process needs to be improved as it is a start up company. Any product should go 5 years of product life cycle to become a very good product in the market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just to concentrate on the stabilization of the product ...that's where all the improvements comes with money from the customers.

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

    Pros

    They give you salary. That's the only plus point/

    Cons

    Everything. HR team writes reviews every time the glassdoor reviews goes down. Managers are clueless about what they want and there are many projects that got scratched down because of that.

    They have no concept of work-life balance. They monitor your naukri activities. Leaving at 7 PM is considered as leaving early. I have to work in odd hours for many days continuously. Management doesn't care about the health of the employees. Appraisal rating is based on the number of hours you work in the office. Join at your own risk. Sigh.. I am still in office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be ethical and learn how to be professional.

    Pros

    I joined the company because of great technology. There are few good people.

    Cons

    The top management does not provide any direction. They should be able to guide, but they are more interested in micro management. As a senior person, I'm used to a better direction and work. No respect at all for the employees, just incapable management . Bad planning and insufficient design review time and input.
