    Innovative Unique Product and best of all Awesome People!

    Marketing (Current Employee) San Francisco, CA

    ProsDatameer 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.

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

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great product, people and customers

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsThe 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.

    ConsUnlike 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 Senior ManagementContinue to grow and empower your employees as you grow the company.

    ProsThe 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.

    Brutal culture, tough environment to work in.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsSolving 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.

    ConsNothing 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 Senior Managementdelegate decisions, trust your people, and hire nicer people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great Product and Great People

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsThe product in development has a great opportunity to solve large and small data integration and visualization needs for all company sizes. Some incredible engineers and people working at the company that made coming to work enjoyable. A very big market opportunity and a good place to work.

    ConsThe CEO was difficult to work with. While very talented in many aspects like engineering, product management and design, his leadership style is inconsistent and immature. The board members and other management are solid which helps.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to build a great product and work to keep the great people there.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Grossly undervalued employees. Waste of time in all regards. Dead end.

    IT Engineer (Current Employee) San Mateo, CA

    ProsFree lunch? A few very nice hard working folks.

    ConsRemote, lack of culture, lack of content employees, lack of respect for fellow employees.
    CEO apprarently drinks a lot but doesn't allow employees to. General lack of energy, excitement and inspiration from staff. Internal systems are very disorganized and everyone seems to be on the wrong page more times than not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire leaders who care and employees that desire to create an amazing work environment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
