I have been working at Cloudera full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good software engineers have lots of great places to work these days. Cloudera is definitely one of them. The engineering culture is extremely strong and there is a strong emphasis on remaining an independent company.

Cons

I don't consider this a con, but you might. Cloudera doesn't waste money on things like in house bands, chef prepared lunches, flying the whole company somewhere, etc that you see from other startups.

    I have been working at Cloudera full-time

    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.

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

    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.
