    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 other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Hortonworks (San Jose, CA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    They contacted me, I was not interested, they told me to contact them in the future if I found a position. I send a linkedin message to the HR who contacted me with the positions I found and got a call from him an hour later and the first thing he did was shouted "stop spamming me!!". How is a linkedin message a spam!! Dont tell people to get back to you if you want to be rude to them. Worst HR ever. I hope they never call me again and I am for sure not applying ever and am definitely not encouraging any of my connections to apply here either.
