About Mimecast


What is it like to work for Mimecast

Leadership
Leadership
When you consider that the stereotypical CEO of a fast growing, ambitious tech company are often aloof and sometimes downright scary, Peter Bauer strikes a very different note at Mimecast. Although the company now employs more than 500 employees globally, 253 staff in the UK and growing, Peter will know each staff member by name. Peter, together with his co-founder Neil Murray, continue to represent the DNA of the company, despite its rapid growth, and that creates a sense of togetherness and 'team' that makes the company feel small. Peter has a strong sense of personal responsibility for the future of both the company and the people he has hired to work in it. He is incredibly driven, works tirelessly, and expects the same commitment from Mimecast staff. It's not a place for a quiet life, but Peter has created an exciting, vibrant workplace where each employee feels they have a role to play in the company's future.

Mimecast's desire is to be a great place to work, so analysis of the survey results will be key to informing action areas for the coming year. These results will be fed back to all staff on our intranet, through regional management meetings and presentation at company kick off meetings. If necessary additional focus groups will be formed to help really understand the feedback. HR strategy will be aligned, wherever possible, to deliver engagement and a great place to work and appropriate actions addressed in the areas/ factors that are important to them.

The Mimecast Eagles Club is an annual employee incentive program to reward Mimecasters who hit 105% of their annual sales quota. Thirty employees (and a guest) are invited to attend a three day learning and adventure experience held at a world class resort with their partners. They have annual bonus schemes and share option schemes to facilitate having variable pay and reward available for everyone. Mimecast reward milestones and behaviour in real time not just the result at the end of the year. We publicly recognise achievements in company communications so as to celebrate and perpetuate success. They have the facility for staff to openly “Recognise a Mimecaster” on their company intranet which gives employees the opportunity to give praise to their colleagues by awarding “badges” of recognition on their intranet profile. Mimecast hold regular social events for staff both formal and informal. Mimecast hosts a Summer Fun Day for all staff and their families, this year everyone attended a fun day at Chessington World of Adventures. Annual awards for outstanding achievements are aligned to their values and principles presented by Exec team to employees at the End of Year function in December.
