Pros

All the benefits of a start up company, lots of passionate people who are working toward a goal of massive Hadoop adoption. Great access to senior leadership, the President of the company is generous with his time, as are all managers.

Cons

Not too many, being remote is hard, would be great to have some more regional offices so that employees could build culture together. The headquarters are ok but a little disheveled, although nice perks with lunch offered etc. Some internal politics to navigate, but which company doesn't have that.

Advice to Management

Don't forget about the people in the field, we could use a place to gather with local colleagues too.

    -- Good stock
    -- Free food, snacks like any modern startup

    Cons

    -- Lot of politics
    -- Non technical managers rule some teams.
    -- Very boring work culture. All work no play.

    -- Not suitable for employees with kids.

    Advice to Management

    Dont mess with lives of people. Respect engineers whom you hire. Listen to engineers.

    Pros

    If you like to be part of a story of growing and achieving in the big data era this is the place to be. If you like to work with smart people this is the team to join.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment. Will add it once it comes to my attention.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up and make us stay as one of the best companies to work for.
