Pros

In engineering, the scope is broad and there are many opportunities for responsibility, working in open source, presenting at conferences, and occasionally interacting with customers big-and-small directly. Not only is the technical team is world-class (many phds/abd's), the folks have strong communication skills, public personalities, and dedciated to getting it done.

Cons

The aren't very many opportunities for straight-out-of-undergrad junior engineering folks currently. Those who have joined straight out of undergrad have generally spent a summer as an intern, or have demonstrated skill by being active in relevant open source projects.

    Pros

    Startup company that's growing steadily.
    Doesn't hire 'slouches'.
    Good vision of where the company needs to go over the short and long term.
    Technically strong, agile on market needs and willing to take risks for strategic goals.

    Cons

    Normal start-up 'growing pains' associated with expansion, such as keeping good internal lines of communication, ensuring growth sections are fully 'onboarded' with company products, strategy and business processes.

    Cowboys and egos, if you believe in teamwork and trust, you need not apply.

    Pros

    Hadoop is really hot, and Cloudera has managed to be a leader in that space largely by being first and by hiring quality for the first 50 folks or so. Cloudera on your resume is a door opening credential.

    Cons

    There is no concept of teamwork at Cloudera a bunch of egos and cowboys, all the supportive team players in management left for healthier environments. Be prepared to keep an eye over your shoulder for trouble and view co-workers as competition rather than team-mates. Management is focussed on some IPO or acquisition and not at all concerned about building a decent company culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is probably too late to repair the broken company culture that rewards disrespect and ego. Take the next offer and sell now while your investors can still make a decent return.
