Cohesity Named One of the Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies to Work For
List Showcases Private Cloud Companies With the Highest Levels of Employee Satisfaction
San Jose, Calif – May 2, 2018 – Cohesity, the leader of hyperconverged secondary storage, is recognized as one of the 50 Highest-Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For in a new list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm, and Glassdoor, one of the world’s largest job and recruiting sites. The list highlights 50 independent, private companies – all business-to-business cloud companies – where employees report the highest levels of satisfaction at work, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.
The distinction placed Cohesity among the top 50 private cloud computing companies to work for, with an overall company rating of 4.4 out of 5. The broader average across Glassdoor is 3.4. Cohesity’s CEO, Mohit Aron, boasts a 87 percent approval rating on Glassdoor – compared to an average of 69 percent for all 770,000 employers on the site – and the company has a 84 percent positive business-outlook rating, again based on feedback shared by employees. The broader Glassdoor average is 48 percent. A positive business outlook means employees believe business will improve in the next six months.
“Since we first partnered with Glassdoor to compile this list in 2016, the cloud has only grown in influence and market power,” said Neeraj Agrawal, a Battery general partner who specializes in cloud investing. “It was also significantly tougher to make the list this year, with companies requiring a higher Glassdoor rating to make the cut – showing that companies can’t rest when it comes to focusing on culture and employee happiness.”
“Our ranking as one of the highest-rated cloud computing companies to work for underscores our priority since day one to create an environment at Cohesity where people thrive personally and professionally,” said Rob Salmon, president and COO, Cohesity. “We have brilliant employees and we want them to be excited about their work and encourage everyone to innovate.”
Glassdoor noted that employees at these highly rated companies commonly mention in online reviews that they enjoy working for mission-driven companies with strong and unique company cultures; employers that promote transparency; and companies with experienced senior leaders who regularly and clearly communicate with employees. For instance, anonymous employee reviews of Cohesity on Glassdoor included the following comments:
“Product is incredible. The engineering is second to none. Extremely well run company, product market fit is perfect. All customers are reference-able. Growth is astounding but well controlled with customer satisfaction being the number 1 priority! Cohesity is well positioned to create a new category which will revolutionize the market over the next 3 years.”
“The product is awesome. CEO is amazing. The way he interacts with engineers and being the developer of Google File System, he knows how to build a great product… The talent pool and mix of new and experienced hires are good. Transparency is unparalleled. And opportunity to learn is unlimited.”
