PoPo

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at DataStax full-time for more than a year

ProsCassandra is a top level Open Source Project, which brings it a level of credibility.
The community seems to have accepted Cassandra as a viable solution especially given its sharding & data-protection architecture.
Committers to the codebase are non employees thereby feeding off the larger eco systems ... 'free' code.

ConsImmature management. Political
Rolling door of employees.
Office/ work environment in Austin & Sunnyvale are a joke & non conducive for effective work or thinking.
Choatic with little planning.
A number of senior employees left over the past 12 months.

Lied to, when I was made an offer about salary scales.
Found out subsequently that this is typical practice to lowball offers.

Advice to Senior ManagementLead by example.
Build trust (doubt if term means anything)
Hire the right leaders
Dont try to mimic MongoDB - in everything you do rather build your own brand

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
