Account Executive (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – 25 April 2018
Mimecast isn't a bad place to work. That being said they provide sales reps with unrealistic goals, and when asked how they came up with those specific numbers, they're at a loss for words. They claim they want us to "Own It" but management can't even let you know how they got to the numbers they threw at you. Out of 24 reps on the SMB inside sales teams, one hit there number last year. The West Coast teams are not set up for success, which is blatantly obvious. Seems as if the company is going down hill.
Free Lunch, Weight Room, Basketball court, Beer Kegs, Pool Tables, Etc.
Micro manged, horrible numbers with no clarity on how to get there, 100% channel with no channel reps in territory, lack of money to send reps to territory
Human Resources (Current Employee) – Lexington, MA – 30 March 2018
Mimecast is a great employer that offers an array of opportunities for staff to develop their careers. There are a ton of fun perks, such as a free onsite gym and beer on tap, but the real strength of the company lies with their people: Smart, motivated, and engaged.
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) – City of London, Greater London – 4 January 2018
Mimecast is an excellent company to work for. They are global leaders in their field and promote a culture of fun, trust, empowerment and dynamism! You get a wonderful sense that everyone is here for the same reason; pulling together to promote success, both individually and as a team. The culture is one that is designed to be fun but also hard working and to that end, we're attracting some amazing talent into the business who want to be part of our journey. The team around me are supportive and a great bunch to work with, as well as having a cool social side.
Great culture, empowering environment, strong team, amazing brand, free breakfasts

Lead Developer (Current Employee) – London – 12 March 2016
Mimecast has traditionally offered its employees creative independence and freedom to choose to develop systems and innovate their products. However with the increase in company size it is now proving more difficult to provide free for all and more stringent coding practices and products developments frameworks are being employed, which results in increase in overall productivity. Mimecast however still allows employees to be innovative and follow their dream projects in the form of internal pet projects which is highly regarded by all present and past employees.
