Toxic culture. Incompetent management.
Director (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDJune 9, 2018
Company is based on a toxic “whats in it for me” culture. Management wants to cash out as soon as possible. They are not in it for any long term whatsoever.

Serious lack of direction, risk taking, or technical competence.

The company embraces marketing hype versus any real differentiating product.

New VP of engineering is in way over his head. Lack of technical, people, or managerial skills has kept him job hopping from one networking company to the next.

The company also has no long term strategy or architecture. They fired all the architects.

Pay is one of the worst in Boise. Benefits are not much better than paying for Obamacare/ACA out of pocket.
Pros
Free parking
Cons
Toxic distrustful management

Great vision
Senior Product Manager, Wireless (Current Employee) –  Los Gatos, CA, headquartered in boiseMay 10, 2018
Lots of potential due to a severe lack of leadership in the overall product team management. The VP of product is way over his head and has no clear understanding of wifi and cellular technology and products.
Pros
Great product team
Cons
Lack of leadership in the product team, it's being led by a project manager who has no background in wirel3ss

Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 16, 2018
Only looking for sales. No advancement. Honesty is questionable.... People are in it for themselves. The training did not prepare for reality. They want people to be technical but not willing to pay.
Pros
Free Lunches and casual dress
Cons
Boys Club, Lack of honesty, favoritism, lack of sales leadership

Enterprise Support Engineer (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDMarch 8, 2018
A leader in their industry, Cradlepoint is a great place to earn a role in everything that surrounds technology. Whether it's sales, product development, platform design, or network support, there are roles for all skill types in this aggressive, trend setting company.
Pros
free vending machines, coffee, tea

Worst Ever!
Technical Staff (Former Employee) –  Boise IDFebruary 8, 2018
Laid off a bunch without cause and without warning. Paid out the legally required minimum. And looking to hire new staff to cover the errors of laying off responsible key individuals with the in depth product knowledge.
Ultimately the same fate to the customers of the product as well. So far no transparency to customers nor the internal staff that are still there.
Cons
Very few are competent with the required knowledge

No advancement
Uneducated Management
Unstable work environment
Low pay
Poor benefits
Unethical

Cradlepoint was an up and coming company. They no longer hold the values and ethics of a fast paced growing corporation. They have an educated management team and they are dis honest with their employees. Pay and benefits are also sub par.

Great place to work!
Distribution Account Manager (Current Employee) –  Boise, IDNovember 26, 2017
Great place to work! Love the culture, and the product. People oriented workplace, with a focus on working as a team. This company is 5 years ahead of it time, and will continue to be successful as it develops into a bigger force in the SD-WAN and LTE Networking industry.

Cradlepoint puts a lot of effort into looking like a "cool place to work", but looks are deceiving.
Enterprise Support Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDMay 17, 2017
Things at Cradlepoint look great from the outside, lots of fun BBQs and work functions. But that isn't everything that makes a job a GOOD job. The benefits are good but crazy expensive. The pay is so far below par that it's appalling. Management is extremely lacking.
If you search for jobs and always see a Support Engineer job listed, it should make you wonder. They get paid poorly and treated worse.
Pros
Fun work functions, good work/life balance
Cons
appalling pay for support side, shady management, cutthroat environment

A good company to work for, the support department is one of the last priorities
Enterprise Support Engineer II (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDApril 15, 2017
The benefits are great and the company holds events and party's after work. Management needs to improve as well as delegated tasks and expectations. Compensation needs to improve based on the requirements of the job. More is added to your plate as the company continues to go through growing pains and understanding the needs of the department. Needs to help even the work load and remove tasks that should be completely by an entirely different team.
Pros
Benefits, Employee Perks, Work Environment
Cons
Management, High Workload, Lack of Compensation

Great Place to work
Account Manager / Solutions Engineer (Former Employee) –  Boise, IDSeptember 19, 2016
Great place to work. Great benefits. Good pay. Leads come in often. This will help you advance your IT background. Management is a little micro and it can be difficult if your placed in a hard area to sell into.

Cradlepoint has good potential to become a contender in the networking industry and are making inroads to do so, however as they grow they are experiencing the growing pains of transitioning from a startup to a corporation.
