I have been working at Bear Data Solutions full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The vision sounds compelling, there are some good people trying to succeed and they have some high profile customers and partners. The offices are in a great location in downtown SF.

Cons

Where to begin. This is one of the worst run companies in the tech sector and Bay Area. The CEO is a classic entrepreneur who has no business running a company or managing people. Unethical behavior, outrageious temper tantrums and a strategy that changes day to day and even hour to hour are the norm. He is a disaster as a leader. Execution is sporadic at best, and the culture is based on fear and intimidation. Even partners and vendors hold the CEO in disdain. Do your yourself a favor and skip this stop...your career and life will be better for it!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There is a business here. Bring in a true leader and professional CEO who will operate with integrity, create a culture that enables people to flourish and develp a realistic strategy that is executable.

    Pros

    None that I witnessed while employed. Most people have only their interest in mind and you can't trust them because they will talk behind your back and back stabb you.

    Cons

    Where to start...... such a long list.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why bother. They don't listen and don't care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frankly I feel the Bear Data Executive team is doing the best they can in the volatile environment of SI/VAR Sales and are doing a great job. The only advice I would give them is to be more selective in terms of who is hired for open sales positions as not everyone is a good fit for the fast paced, high pressure, results oriented environment that is Bear Data.
