What Employees Say
I have been working at Cloudera full-time for more than a year
- Face paced, execution focused culture with a huge dose of humanity - Intelligent, experienced co-workers, many of whom have long tenures and believe in the tech/long-term prospects of the... company - Management and colleagues care about your overall work experience and career progression - Lot's of challenging problems to work when you're trying to make an open source software business with a complex product work at scale Bottom line: people are respectful of your time and life and aren't political. It's a high energy atmosphere where you wake up excited to go to work.
- Scaling an open-source software business based on support is difficult. - A merger is highly disruptive so it takes time to get back into execution mode. I would say we've been through the worst... of this for 2 months and it's definitely showing. - Dealing with general pessimism from outside analysts and a low stock price isn't for everyone. - Still not a huge organization by some standards so it's not a place to get "lost" in the mix. It's very much all hands on deck.
Advice to Management
This is complex stuff, it's easier for people to feel nervous when they don't fully understand the tech/use cases/value. I think robust education around product (especially CDP) for the rank and file... would be helpful. $750M in revenue = massive value creation. I think it's easy for that to get lost on people when the stock price is low.

Amazing fun culture Some of the smartest people Great partner ecosystem
Still ambiguity in certain aspects of business (e.g. Partner model) Turnover of sales - Due to availability of product, transition to cloud
Advice to Management
Stay the course. Scaling back a bit right thing. Continue Path to cloud. Too much celebration on little things..
