Current Employee - Sales Management in Palo Alto, CA
Current Employee - Sales Management in Palo Alto, CA

I have been working at Cloudera full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Incredible culture, smartest people in the idustry, product thats changing the world (curing cancer, feeding the world, fighting fraud, etc), revenue growth second to no other company in the valley

Cons

management is not frivolous with money in the same some other startups are so no ipads for christmas, lavish parties, etc. Highly competitive market, very complex product. Hard to retain top talent given how hot big data is; cloudera is rarely the highest bidder from a comp perspective and does not have a great equity program.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to foster the amazing culture...

    I have been working at Cloudera full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    - The people!! Regardless of departments, the quality of people they've hired is incredible.
    - From a sales perspective, the variety of use cases for Hadoop keeps each day/phone call interesting.
    - Perks. Breakfast, lunch, coffee machines, a wall of snacks, commuter compensation, you name it.
    - Beautiful Offices in both Palo Alto and San Francisco
    - Incredible Opportunity to learn about the space, meet awesome people, and hone your skills

    Cons

    - A very corporate mentality for a 5 year old "Startup" company.
    - Line of sight to growth/promotion is hazy
    - Market is ever changing and the competitive landscape is getting full.
    - Sometimes they feel like the Yankees. Instead of promoting within, they hire the best free agents!
    - Office Politics

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Find alternative ways to motivate your employees, which in turn will keep them at Cloudera
    - Encourage interactions between departments
    - Keep bringing in good talent and the sky is the limit!
