    I have been working at DataStax full-time


    Silicon Valley tech start-ups all have certain things in common. They all have "growing pains", they're all fast-paced, and your job is never as secure as it would be at an established company/organization. But beyond that, differences in culture, work-life balance, transparency, accountability, and future viability of the company abound.

    As far as DataStax goes, it really doesn't get much better for a Silicon Valley start-up. The company is in a really good place right now - growing fast and with excellent leadership and an extremely positive 5-year outlook. The open work-from-home policy provides much needed work-life balance as it eliminates 2-4 hours a day of unnecessary commute time and sitting in Bay Area traffic. The teams, especially marketing, are top-notch and brimming with talent and experience. The morale is high. Benefits are excellent. The unlimited time off vacation policy is honored and not used against employees.

    This is a company that's doing things right and learning from mistakes - and EVERY company makes mistakes (the important thing is to learn from them). There's no hubris here.


    See "Pros" above. Typical SV start-up things...

    Advice to Management

    You're doing a great job. Keep up the good work and keep an eye for positions/roles that need more hands on deck to help with the workload.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I had a wholly unpleasant experience interviewing with this company. The interviewer seem disorganized and wasn't honest on the whole.

    I asked about the codebase, the general working conditions and the day-to-day operations. The interviewer seemed to be covering up alot of things, making it seem better than it actually was.

    A couple of red flags:

    Doesn't seem like they can keep engineers on staff. The pay seems to be very low.

    Also, doesn't appear to be a good work-life-balance. Overworked staff and understaffed teams.

    I'd pass.
