    Pros

    Tom Reilly is genuinely a nice person And is passionate about culture and transparency. Scott Aronson loves salespeople. They both love customers. Our R&D team created an industry and are still disrupting the dinosaurs of database while integrating with the cloud providers like AWS, Azure, and Google.

    Our Enterprise Data Cloud seamlessly integrates on-prem and cloud based data and applications from the edge of IOT to AI and data science. This is what every company that wants to remain relevant and cost competitive is trying to do right now and we have the platform to get them there.

    Something like 90% of the global 2000 are on our platform and those platforms are starting to grow like crazy.

    The best part is we earn the right to bill our customers. Open source is such a purely mutual value driven business model.

    The west region offices are beautiful and easy to get to for work and meetings.

    Cons

    I honestly have no cons. And No, management did not ask for this review to be written. (Its so obvious on other reviews).

    Advice to Management

    Continue to build the partner/customer business model and service offerings. Cloud is blurring the lines between a customer and a go to market partner.

    Pros

    First and foremost is the culture - Led & enabled by the CEO, it permeates the entire company. It's an incredible feat to pull this off in the midst of a merger of rivals. Never perfect but the synergies of the two (now one) companies are undeniable in the market and with the end-users. The technology is highly complimentary and with great people throughout the organizations, the real speed, purpose, and efficiencies are still to be fully realized. Having the founders so intimately involved with the business is a great sign that Cloudera is still moving in the right direction, innovating, and disrupting markets.

    Cons

    There will continue to be bumps over time as the New Cloudera picks up speed and those will need to be addressed quickly. Not every executive decision was great but in all fairness, those seem to be getting resolved quickly. Back office & HR systems will continue to be a challenge. HR leadership is too disconnected leaving exec leadership to pick up the slack - that needs to get resolved so that the CEO and Founders aren't carrying too much of the load.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course and continue to focus on culture. You will need to keep empowering leaders to move out courageously and confidently.; anticipate a lull over the next few months and get ahead of it to keep the momentum. Remote offices are often forgotten - keep them connected. Focus on diversity across the entire company - find young superstars and get them on-board. Fail fast and change course quickly; the nimbleness of Cloudera is a significant competitive advantage.

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

    Pros

    Team, mission, leadership, product, office work environment, business enablement, partners.

    Cons

    The platform is incredibly powerful and therefore quite complex leading to longer than average sales cycles and customer value extraction. Travel can be quite extensive and impact work/home balance significantly. The stock gets hammered in the market but 3-5 year outlook is solid!

    Advice to Management

    Continue the focus on diversity, invest heavily in engineering not only on the platform but on applications to meet the needs of very specific use cases.
