    I have been working at Datameer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Datameer is such an innovative company, I work with a lot of smart, talented and passionate people. Datameer has an amazing product that is very unique to the big data space. It has received a lot of traction in the news recently.

    We just moved offices and the location in San Francisco is close to BART and being on the 4th floor we have an amazing view of the city! Light, bright and airy!

    This is also an organization where they tend to recognize and promote within. I have seen several people in the sales and engineering department move up and around. Even their inside sales reps there is a career path and they can move into field sales. Virtually unheard of at my last organization.

    Cons

    Being a startup, sometimes certain projects take more time with work/life balance, but it is not all the time and what you do here, you can really see a difference and how it impacts business!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up with the innovation of the product. Recognize hard workers and be willing to be flexible with employees.

    Pros

    You can learn a lot. Lovely people with very positive attitude. A great example of a productive "team".

    Company overall is very cost sensetive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More stock or option to employees may generate a more positive sense of ownership in the team...

    I have been working at Datameer full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Lots of opportunity to make a difference
    - Lean product with lots of potential
    - Great, smart, hard working people willing to help each other succeed
    - Lots of visibility on where company is heading
    - Generous benefits
    - Numerous career opportunities.

    Cons

    - Not an environment to warm up a seat every day.
    - As a fast growing company, lots of challenges keeping internal systems organized (Growing pains).
    - Need to trim some fat from product and focus on things Datameer is good at.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fast growing companies need great people to take things to next level. Need to invest more resources to attract and maintain great people.
    Also, as a growing global company, communication challenges need to be addressed by adopting better collaboration tools.

    Pros

    - I have more autonomy and influence than other startups I've worked for
    - There is a top level strategy that everyone understands and is working towards
    - Marketing and sales are aligned…delicious to me as I'm in sales

    Cons

    - Office is a bit clunky (used to be law office) but we are moving the The City and this will be resolved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to invest in the product and people.

    Pros

    Challenging work and learning environment for the Hadoop Ecosystem

    Cons

    Datameer "the app" is a jack of all BI trades master of none. Sales strategy is nonexistence to inconsistent at best.

    I have been working at Datameer full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The product is extremely effective, and the biggest, most successful companies continue to use the product year after year.
    Dynamic, hard-working, create and smart people that are fun to work with.

    Cons

    Unlike some companies, this is a place you need to execute. So you need to enjoy what you're doing and stay focused on results. If you like to pontificate and not do the work, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire good people and continue to grow existing employees

    Pros

    The product is extremely effective in small to large organizations. And the most successful companies continue to use the product year after year. People are smart, hard-working, creative and fun to work with.

    Cons

    Unlike at some companies, you need to focus and get things done. If you prefer to come up with ideas and not follow through, this is not the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and empower your employees as you grow the company.

    I worked at Datameer

    Pros

    Solving an interesting problem with exciting technology, big data is a huge area of upside and some of the tier one venture capitalists have taken notice. Datameer is in a space that is growing rapidly.

    Cons

    Nothing gets done without the CEO approval. Lot's of bullying and talking down to people. Isolated office space, no one communicates with each other. Lack of interesting perspectives or ideas, unless of course it comes from the CEO. Several people have left due to the brutal and unforgiving culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    delegate decisions, trust your people, and hire nicer people.
