      Pros

      I find all the people here balanced - Nerd + Humour + Fun. 99% of the workforce is helping in nature, believe in sharing - beauty of open source. You will never feel left out in any group conversation, they encourage creative questions. For fun quotient, we have beer bash every 2nd Friday with some team building activities. And yes, you get free lunches here and free ride to office as well. :) Flexi-timings, WFH when needed.

      Cons

      Changes are slow but firm as great monuments take time to be built. This can be frustrating to fast-paced folks.

      Pros

      I joined Hortonworks as an Intern and got converted to Full Time. People are highly talented. Everyone is ready to help and learn new things. I got to learn from Apache committers and work with them. This is the best place to work if one is interested in Hadoop and Open Source. Lunch is yummy and friday parties are fun. As interns, we get to go for outing every month sponsored by the company . Apart from that, whole office movie outing, lunch and team outings, women's day parties add to the fun factor. Flexible office timings, work from home option feel flexible at work.

      Cons

      No Cons as of now.

      Pros

      Nothing proprietary. Whatever you write goes back to open source. There is no where you can get to work with so many open source committers/contributors including several of the inventors of Hadoop and YARN. Although not a small company in overall size, it is still a fairly small engineering org in HQ. The teams working on several different open source projects are very small, so you get a chance to make a big impact. Pre-IPO company stocks give you a lot of hope and enthusiasm to make this company successful. 100% insurance premium for family, unlimited vacation, lunch, snacks, valet parking, on-site massage, regular team events and company picnic - all these have become very common in almost all startup companies and they are here too :)

      Cons

      The senior executive or management team seems to be quite aloof. Surprisingly we don't get to see them at all, specifically the CEO.

      Thank you for your comments and we are striving to slow down a bit. The executive leadership is adding up frequent flyer miles at a rapid pace! We hope you were able to attend and enjoy the company picnic at Great American. We will strive to bring more real time updates to the team.
