    Cloudera has all the ingredients to make a successful company... Great people, great product, great leadership. If you, like me and want to work at a company that has incredibly smart people that are passionate about what they do, has a best in class product that not only helps companies bottom line, but most importantly helps mankind and has a leadership team that is transparent, direct and brilliant then this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Facilities, crowded offices, almost impossible to get conference rooms on short notice. Open cube environment makes it difficult to have confidential conversations.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to do what you do because its working.

    -As the company is growing one is not sure where their career is heading.Accolades flow in ,but as soon as one asks growth, conversation becomes very limiting and pessimistic in nature

    We are an engineering company at the core and i feel sometimes Sales go on an overdrive to show off themselves.Sales need to be less myopic.

    Pros

    Good engineering team, good top level management, ok products

    Cons

    Bad middle management especially in proprietary teams like Cloud Services. Middle managements lacks the sense of involvement and ownership. Sometimes, it is a wonder how they got into the positions!

    Advice to Management

    Please look into middle management

    I worked at Cloudera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Intelligent people. Passionate about Cloudera. Sincere in their belief that Cloudera will dominate the world. Nice CEO and Founders.

    Cons

    Unwilling to adapt to the world beyond Silicon Valley. These guys are so drunk on their own internal arrogance that I wonder if they will survive. They think their competitors are idiots. Their marketing team is very small and evidently Senior Management isn't interested in growing it. They think their customers on Wall Street and in the Bay Area are representative of the market at large -- they are not. They don't understand that not every customer has a staff of 20 all ready to dig into Big Data.

    Don't bother applying if you are differently abled, don't look like a computer geek, or haven't spent the past 5 years in Silicon Valley.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people from outside Silicon Valley. Hire people who show talent at what they have done, not based on where they went to school. Hire people who are different than you are.

    I worked at Cloudera full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good beginner training and onboarding
    Well respected executive

    Cons

    New middle-level management how to treat employee
    Managers hires friends and favors
    Make you work harder than required.

    Advice to Management

    Help existing customer first; I understand Cloudera spend lot of money on Marketing and knows executives at Customer. However being disruptive does not help technical team at customers, it's technology painful to end uses.
