Being ranked on the list for the third consecutive year, Mimecast earned an overall company rating of 4.1, with the broader average across Glassdoor being a 3.4. Mimecast CEO Peter Bauer boasts a 91 percent approval rating compared to an average of 69 percent. Furthermore, Mimecast has an 86 percent positive business-outlook rating, compared to the Glassdoor average of 48 percent.

For the past 15 years, Mimecast remained dedicated to creating a distinctive company culture in an effort to enable employees to do their best work as well as to maintain top talent to drive innovation in the email security space,” said Peter Bauer chief executive officer at Mimecast. “At Mimecast, we consider our employees to be our most valuable assets and will continue to strive to be a top employer at our locations throughout the world.”
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 a few anonymous employee reviews of Mimecast on Glassdoor:
“You are working with some of the smartest people in the industry. The CEO, Peter Bauer, really cares about this company and his employees. Hard to find that in a CEO.”
