    I have been working at Hortonworks (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pioneers in the big data world - so you get to learn the technology before anyone else could. Great colleagues - if you are working in a bigger team but mostly you will be engaging with clients. Insurance is free.

    Cons

    Not many cons. Lot of your work style depends on client whom you work with, But If you are not happy with a client you can move to other one easily.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Hortonworks.

    Interview

    There were two recruiter interviews, one technical phone screen and an onsite interview. I found out I was getting an offer the next day after the onsite. Their process moved very quickly.
