    I have been working at MapR Technologies full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I enjoy the work. Good product, great engineers. Fairly good Marketing and PR team.

    Company future looks mostly promising.

    Cons

    Engineering management team is sub-par. Well, except for few. Good engineers dislike working for not-so-smart leaders.

    The project management is causing quite a havoc. Planning the release is important, but not at the cost of sanity of the team. The not-so-smart sheets, the constant inquiry on status, demanding to know why something wasn't done yet, even when you don't understand a tiny little bit about anything technical (or frankly sometimes wonder even logical) are some issues plaguing the team. Most engineers feel the role of the PM being mostly pointless, except to satisfy the tracking needs of the execs. Engineering deadlines slip all the time and mostly for the right reasons. A rigid schedule can cause more harm than good.

    I agree most companies do have some sort of politics amongst execs, but such things should be kept away from us, the "common people"! We have better things to worry about.

    Most employees are uncertain of the company's prospects, I'm guessing mostly due to facts about the same not being shared by execs.

    And was surprised to observe the widely prevailing sense of lack of job security. And most people believe the company is being stringent in providing good facilities and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Engineering management needs to focus on retaining talent, and keeping them happy.

    Should consider a more practical and flexible way of project management. Engineers are the best judge of deciding what's important and would rather not have some non-technical individual dictate priorities, which would be wrong more often than not.

    Engineers are a bunch of curious people who do have the right to know how the company is doing. We'd like to hear more about what's coming and how we plan to stay ahead - technologically, and strategically.

    Loosen your wallet a little. Provide world-class facilities for your employees. A good workplace will bring in tremendous amount of positivity.

    Choose your timing of letting go of people wisely. Not utilizing them as a weapon of fear. The recent ones caused concern amongst many folks. It's not very professional either.

    HR must be proactive in implementing ways for employees to put forward their concerns directly.
