Featured Review

Current Employee - Sales Management

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

Pros

The platform depth and breadth is amazing. Over 40 Apache projects supported. Every deal is unique. Multiple entry points into almost any account. 21 Extra, mandatory, and identical vacation days... in 2020 and 2021 across the company for mental health and family during the pandemic. Having them all on the same days means you aren't working "much" (Since the whole company is "off" on the same days) other than Customer Calls while on "vacation". Its sales, so cmon you know you are working a little. Open Source Model provides steady leads for pipeline development.

Cons

Complex product portfolio requires curious/disciplined mind to learn it all. Shift to cloud requires steady customer support and hand holding through migrations. When they get there it is great, but... takes time to get them there.

Advice to Management

Worry less about "short term profitability", and spend a lot more money on the cloud development to address all the security, and BCDR requirements customers have. The upside to the stock via growth... in the cloud revenues is far greater than a few points on the Net Income side.

Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer

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

Pros

SmartThings has a huge platform with high volumes of traffic, a plethora of technologies used, and brilliant engineers.

Cons

It can be demanding, the world of IOT is moving extremely fast.

Advice to Management

Reliability engineering should be a first class concern. New features are great, but reliability engineering should be a first class product concern that requires continuous investment as it has the... most direct impact on our customers.
