    I have been working at DataStax full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    We get to work with amazing people who are extremely smart but humble. We get to work with teams that help each first. The work we are doing is cutting edge using the latest technology. Finally, because the company is so focused on remote work, the tooling is designed for that usecase perfectly

    Cons

    Cannot think of any at this point

    Advice to Management

    Keep on moving forward and embracing the new world we live in, especially with software initiatives that make us not only more relevant than we are, but pushing the boundary to being the next Kleenex only in distributed databases (i.e. Kleenex is the name brand of facial tissues, but every uses Kleenex as the name for all facial tissues)

    Software Engineer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at DataStax in March 2014.

    Interview

    Standard interview process consisting of a phone call from a recruiter followed by multiple tech interviews via video conferencing. They will give you a programming problem to solve in your language of choice.

    I solved the programming problem only to have it labeled as too simplistic of a solution. Evidently the hiring manager made a mistake in not providing a challenging enough problem to solve. I was asked to solve a more difficult version of the problem after which I decided to halt the interview process. I deem this behavior as unprofessional and a complete waste of a candidates time.

    It looks like DataStax is a young company - unfortunately many of their managers lack professionalism and good interview etiquette. Some of the negative reviews from existing employees confirm this. This appears to be a case of a company promoting engineers to management roles without providing them management training.
