    Great visibility to big picture of every piece that you integrate with this product.

    Cons

    Coping up with the speed and technology.

    Pros

    Good product to work with

    Cons

    Center head behaves like a Bank Manager and interfere in your day to day job responsibilities.
    Couple of so called people claim themselves as founding members group(so what?), and behave unethical, they don't listen to good feedback/inputs from other, assume you are out of ORG if you do so. THEY ARE HIGHLY POLITICAL.
    Good people leaving for the same reason.
    Referrals program is a big mess and has become a money earning means for founding members.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on eye on local management, please do not go with their words. Request 360 degree feedback to know the fact

    Pros

    Management is quite lax about working from home, as long as you do your work and complete your share of work to be done in time and efficiently.

    Cons

    Didn't have an Indian office till recently so there were minor admin issues which took time to solve.

    Pros

    Only one thing I found good i.e "Product quality and capability"

    Cons

    Referral program creating political environment, many dumb/unprofessional people joined and making toxic env for other people. Support is worse and good people are leaving one by one, managers are busy in making their good image in front of upper management. No hard work appreciation, you have to be good in buttering and should give complement to your manager 24/7. All over company is shrinking slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Can't give advice to management because they don't even consider it.

    I worked at MapR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Great team of engineers, minimal management overhead, challenging work, and great work environment.

    For people looking for good systems work in Hyderabad, there is no better company. None of the biggies in Hyd can compete with MapR in terms of the nature of work.

    Cons

    Fitting into a strong team is challenging. Takes a while to build a reputation for oneself - however, consistent good performance along with new ideas are appreciated.

    Quality is given high priority => no scope for making mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Lots of people have spent significant amount of time in their career with MapR since it was born. It will be helpful to share the company's future plans with such select employees and re-assure them.

    Pros

    - Work culture is really great. Everyone is very helping and are always happy for collaboration.
    - Technology and product performing well and way ahead then other competitors.
    - People who have developed the product are very brilliant but still very down to earth and approachable. They help everyone to understand the product and technology internals in a better way.
    - Good and competitive perks and compensation.

    Cons

    - Working hours sometime gets stretched but otherwise working hours are flexible. But it is not a major cause as it is a startup and everyone's contribution counts towards the growth of the company.

    Advice to Management

    - Keep up the good work.
