    I have been working at Cloudera full-time

    Pros

    The market opportunity is massive, and the merger with Hortonworks makes a lot of sense. We also have an executive staff that believes strongly in fostering an environment of openness.

    Cons

    The technology we provide has almost limitless applications; but its a difficult sale, and still complex to use.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to communicate openly with the staff, and focus resources on making Cloudera Enterprise easier to use.

    I worked at Cloudera full-time

    Pros

    Good offices
    Free lunches
    Flexible environment
    A few really talented people left, but bleeding hard
    Exciting technology in an exciting domain & era
    Big customer base

    Cons

    Inversed meritocracy: work well, do grunt work, execute & please customers, you will get nothing (and someone else will get the credit). Screw-up, befriend management or old timers and you will get an all-hands shootouts and promo
    Too many unnecessary layers or middle layer/PM obfuscating reality and who have zero clue. Any creativity is getting killed by those.
    Competition already passed-us

    Advice to Management

    Share you real worries to everybody, fire the failures right away, more empathy and level-up the employees. Be bold for real and get visibility to the real doers. People can't be bluffed anymore after 2 years of inaction..

    Pros

    Snacks & Drinks
    Happy hours
    Used to have good training.

    Cons

    “Grow with Cloudera” is not a reality. Promotions are 100% political. Backstabbing middle management has corrupted the culture. Unhealthy environment to work. Major lack of organization and structure.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the poor managers.
    Don’t allow harassers and liars to make decisions for the company.

    I worked at Cloudera full-time

    Pros

    - Fantastic benefits and competitive pay
    - Has a GREAT reputation in the Big Data world. Spending four (4) years there has provided a great springboard to other positions at some of the valley's best companies

    Cons

    - Grew VERY fast and got lost in the growth.
    - Upward movement isn't always available. Lots of veteran Clouderans ended up moving to lower positions from managerial positions to find different roles as there wasn't much available on their current track.
