    I have been working at Datameer full-time (less than an 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.

    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 (more than an 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.

    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.

    I worked at Datameer full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Continue to build a great product and work to keep the great people there.

    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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Free lunch? A few very nice hard working folks.

    Cons

    Remote, 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire leaders who care and employees that desire to create an amazing work environment.
