Glassdoor and Battery Ventures Name Sprinklr a Top Private Cloud Company to Work For During the Coronavirus Pandemic
Sprinklr, the Customer Experience Management (CXM) platform for modern enterprises, was recognized as one of the 25 Highest Rated Private Cloud Computing Companies To Work For in a list released by Battery Ventures, a global investment firm and cloud investor, with data specifically provided by Glassdoor*, the worldwide leader on insights about jobs and companies. The list highlights 25 privately held companies - all business-to-business, cloud-computing companies - where employees reported the highest levels of satisfaction at work during the first six months of the pandemic, according to employee feedback shared on Glassdoor.
Sprinklr's average Glassdoor rating from March through August is 4.4, while the broader average across Glassdoor is 3.5. Sprinklr's senior leadership rating is 4.1, compared to the Glassdoor average of 3.2. Additionally, Sprinklr's positive business-outlook rating-indicating the percentage of employees who believe their employer's business will get better in the next six months-was 78% compared to an average across Glassdoor of 51%.
This is the fourth year Battery has issued a version of its highest-rated cloud companies list. The ranking - which this year hinged on how companies are handling issues like remote workforces and the broader economic downturn - highlight the global trend of businesses increasingly turning to the cloud to run critical technology systems and software, instead of using on-premise systems.
Positive Company Culture = Corporate Growth
The top 25 companies highlight the potential links between positive company culture and overall corporate performance and growth. This year, Sprinklr is one of 10 companies on the list that announced financing rounds during the pandemic (through November 1).
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, according to one anonymous employee review of Sprinklr on Glassdoor:
"I've been with Sprinklr for more than 8 years and have had the privilege and pleasure to grow with the company itself. I have been encouraged and empowered to contribute in a variety of ways across various initiatives and audiences.
