Advice to Management
For India employees, provide the accommodation at the time of joining. Start office in a few more locations in India like Bangalore.
I applied online. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Cloudera (San Francisco, CA (US)).
Job description online does not match what they were looking for. Interviewer was not prepared to ask intelligent questions. Interviewer did not understand scope of job. Interviewer was emotionally closed and not communicative. Interviewer showed little interest in me as a person. Interviewer made multiple promises and did not deliver on any of them. Interviewer promised to set up interviews with other employees and did not do so.
