This was my only contract job I had. It's an amazing atmosphere! The CEO and CFO are amazing guys. The person I worked with was not nice and cut throat. For an EA thought they were the President...
Pros

Office Management Graduate (Current Employee) –  Johannesburg, Gauteng14 August 2018
A typical day at work is generally energetic and filled with friendly people that are often willing to help.

I learned the importance of working with different kinds of personalities and being there for each other in teams.

Management is very friendly and often approachable.

The hardest part of the job is multitasking.

The most enjoyable part is the ever so often events and friendly culture,
Pros
The Birthday cakes for every birthday.
Cons
Workload

Great office, unrealistic goals
Account Executive (Current Employee) –  Lexington, MA25 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.
Pros
Free Lunch, Weight Room, Basketball court, Beer Kegs, Pool Tables, Etc.
Cons
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

Current Mimecaster
Technical Recruiter (Current Employee) –  City of London, Greater London4 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.
Pros
Great culture, empowering environment, strong team, amazing brand, free breakfasts
Cons
Commuting from outside London can be challenge, however the company are flexible with this.

Creative work place
Lead Developer (Current Employee) –  London12 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.
Pros
Good salary and benefits
Cons
Bad work life balance

Decent company
Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Boston, MA24 January 2016
Good environment but poorly run. Management often doesn't know what is going to happen in the next quarter or so and things are constantly changing. Favoritism often dictates promotions.
