It was with a great deal of pride that we heard Centrify is among the winners of the eighth annual Glassdoor Employees’ Choice Awards, a list of the Best Places to Work in 2016.
This award is really special to us. Unlike other awards, this is based entirely on feedback and company reviews that our employees have voluntarily and anonymously shared on Glassdoor over the past year. This year, we are proud to be recognized among an elite group of companies that have less than 1,000 employees.
Centrify has won a number of awards this year for our great products. For example, Network World rated us the best single sign-on tool for SaaS apps in a recent head-to-head shootout comparing seven vendors. We have also grown our install base to over 5000 customers and we know we have a very happy customer base (we have a 97% retention rate on a dollar basis when it comes time for customers to renew their subscriptions or maintenance, and we have a 90+% customer satisfaction rate that is measured by surveys that are sent after a technical support case is closed).
It takes a great company to deliver great award-winning products and a large number of happy customers. And to have a great company you need smart, hard-working employees who fundamentally like to work at that company. We always felt that we are a great company, but it is gratifying to see this confirmed and validated via reviews on Glassdoor.
If you are not a Centrify employee and are interested in joining the team, we’re looking for creative people who are energetic, motived, and who like to work in a highly collaborative environment. You’ll get to work with smart people who have a passion for building great software. Join us in our brand new Santa Clara Headquarters or other offices around the world and work with fellow employees who are focused on making a difference… Because after all we address the top attack vector used by bad guys in data breaches — compromised credentials.
A huge thank you goes out to all our employees who took the time to share their perspectives on what it’s like to work here. We really appreciate all the valuable feedback as it only helps us to be better. Below are just a few words that Centrify employees shared on Glassdoor that contributed toward the award and that made us feel incredibly honored to be recognized:
“Centrify is full of dedicated, smart and resourceful individuals. It is a collaborative and welcoming environment that encourages its employees to share their opinions and ideas, and its executives welcome employees to have discussions with them weekly. i love my co-workers — they are all considerate, hard working and fun. Centrify is definitely the best company that I have worked for.”
“Love the company so far, lots of friendly people always willing to help. It says a lot about a company when a very senior person is partially in charge for setting your office (since the office is a satellite and there isn’t an admin staff here). Additionally the company is working on very cool technology and products.”
“Some of the smartest people I’ve had the pleasure to work with. Great collaboration across teams in a fast-paced environment. Everyone is working towards a common goal of success, not just there to do the daily grind. It seems like everyone wants to make the company the best it can be. The technology is cutting edge and poised to explode in the industry as a must-have product for all enterprises, which is exciting. People are positive and helpful, and I find that I enjoy going to work. There’s not politics or drama, and the executives’ doors are always open. Accommodating schedule and a great work-life balance.”
“Centrify is filled with really smart people. You have to keep up. Everyone at the company is so hands-on that you wind up learning so much about technology just by listening and being present. The people here are extremely welcoming, friendly and inclusive. C-level is on the ground working with us. I am willing to bet the CEO knows everyone’s name here.
“Pros: New office location in Santa Clara, company has grown alot over the last several years and is really the true leader in the Identity and Access Management space. Sales management are good people to work with, and the sales team in general are all really solid individuals. Many that have left the company are returning back, so that goes to show how good the company culture has been. Cons: typical growth challenges, nothing out of the ordinary… overlay product team/selling can sometimes be a bit confusing, but again, nothing outrageous… Advice to Management:just continue to listen to your employees as you have, and allow the culture to develop”
“Pros: I worked at Centrify for a number of years and have now returned. This is a very focused company where motivated and intelligent people can make a significant contribution. The feedback from customers regarding how we support them is overwhelmingly positive, and that means a lot to us. Companies are putting their security and identity management in our hands and they understand we take it seriously. This is a very fast growing market segment and we are getting a lot of visibility for our products. Now is a good time to come on board. Cons: Only one ping pong table. Some of the players are very good and they will smash the ball at your face. I’m just kidding. I couldn’t think of anything bad.”
