      Pros

      People were great! If you like Big Data Technology is a great place to be. Felt like a new, growing company - lots of momentum and excitement. Cafeteria lunch in Palo Alto was awesome! Work life balance was great! The Manager and VP I reported to were outstanding!

      Cons

      Overall great experience before I was negatively impacted by a RIFF that I was informed was due to COVID. small complaint - quickly growing team did not have some move advanced internal tools in place yet to make performing job responsibility in a more effective manner.

      Good place to work, but lacks clear direction

      Pros

      Cloudera is a good place to work as an engineer. I can see that the company really takes care of their employees and I feel a sense of loyalty because of this. Work-life balance - From unlimited PTO to "unplug" days that force everyone to take time away from work; Cloudera really does "walk-the-talk" in ensuring there is a sustainable work-life balance. Peers - I have been fortunate to work with lots of smart people at Cloudera that are experts in numerous disciplines. You'll probably work with the person who wrote the book on subject X at some point Management - Management focuses on transparency and regularly makes themselves available to answer questions from rank-and-file employees. Management seems to genuinely care about the employee experience. Growth - The company is reorienting itself to head-off competitors and the ever-evolving competitive landscape. This can be chaotic, but also provides interesting challenges and opportunities to learn and grow. If you want to engineer big data products, Cloudera is the place to be.

      Cons

      Lacks clear direction - A clear direction is rarely shared by everyone. It doesn't feel like we are all focused on moving in the same direction. Major initiatives do not seem well-organized and can be chaotic. Overseas hiring - Most of the company's hiring is occurring overseas in lower-cost markets. If you lose an Engineer in the US or UK you're most likely going to have to back-fill with someone from a lower cost market who doesn't have as much experience or knowledge. Remote first? - Cloudera is trying to evolve into a remote-first company (as many others are too), but not making enough progress in this area. Home office - There is minimal assistance in maintaining a home office for remote workers. The company only provides a laptop and a one-time stipend which won't even cover the cost of a desk. You'll have to pay for everything else out-of-pocket. Open source - I used to enjoy contributing to open source projects as part of my day-to-day job. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case due to the company's evolving product strategy.

      Pros

      Compensation Work-life balance Some great individual contributors

      Cons

      - Market traction: from hype to disillusionment. Will enlightenment come with CDP, if not too late? - No longer a challenging high-standards environment in my opinion
