    I have been working at Datameer

    Pros

    Free lunch and snacks are good.

    Cons

    Distributed engineering teams with widely varying ideas of proper engineering. Two second hacks are preferred instead of spending five minutes to do something correctly. Horrible inter-team communication. Each side of the world despises the other.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out the teams communication issues first and quick. Doesn't take long to see how toxic everyone is and new hires will not stay.

    About a year in, he bolts on the mess he created. Moving on to AWS to screw things up there

    I worked at Datameer for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to join Datameer October 2017 and it was one of my best decisions. I joined to lead the Global Education business/organization and I was fortunate enough to have a rock solid team. What I really valued about the company was the customers and the employees. I worked directly with Global Sales and the Customers on a daily basis and sales team embraced the value of education and adoption and the...

    Still going through growing pains but expected just like every other company large and small.

    I have been working at Datameer full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    There are no pros unfortunately, there was a good product that met the needs of a technology that is now declining massively. Food variety is good in the kitchen.

    Cons

    Management are continually changing direction, making strange decisions, the quotas they have given their teams are completely unachievable. Its like they cant accept the inevitable that this company is finished....it address a problem that does not exist. Zero new logos for a year tells you everything you need to know.

    Advice to Management

    There is none as they don't listen. In fact they don't even agree between themselves.

    I worked at Datameer full-time

    Pros

    Most of the staff is great, good product, some really smart people

    Cons

    It only takes a few bad apples...some highly caustic team members, astonishing lack of respect, misogynistic, acerbic... I should have paid attention to the negative reviews on here. I thought they were from embittered ex-employees until I got to witness it firsthand.

    Advice to Management

    Place an importance on collaboration, team-work, higher positive people. Mordacious teammates are extremely counter-productive and add undo burden to progress and product development. Establish well-documented procedures, policies, and processes.

    Pros

    Smart engineering group that is trying to keep a tired product relevant

    Cons

    Constant churn, zero accountability from leadership team. Leaders have no idea what to do to grow company. Miserable work environment. Leaders have turned over just about everyone and now their people are leaving . No new logo velocity. This company has a lot in common with Bruce Willis in the Six Sense. It is dead but they just don't know it yet. When will this bad movie end?

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about glory days at Teradata and lead the team or move on.

    Pros

    People - Intelligent and passionate people are the core of this company. The teammates across the globe are highly focused on delivering a great product and serving our customers. Collaboration - Teams work together to solve problems creatively. The company culture seeks feedback and improvement regularly. When things need improvement, we work together to fix it! Opportunity - Team members encouraged to take on...

    Cons

    Small Business - This isn't exclusively a "con" but is a reality at Datameer. The company operates with essential staff but not a lot of extras. At times, this entails taking on extra responsibilities and filling in gaps when teammates are on vacation. This style is not a good fit for candidates seeking to only perform bare minimum duties. High Attrition - Like many companies rooted in today's technology industry,...

    Advice to Management

    Formalize a recurring "state of the union" type communication globally. There's a lot of communication that happens socially instead of formally and it breeds a rumor culture. Control the message directly to the whole company to minimize rumors.

    Pros

    I've been at Datameer for almost a year now. While I've seen the result of several big changes, it's clearly on the upside. It's a company with genuine team members, clear opportunities for growth, and a management team that cares about career development. Colleagues are very competent, collaborative, respectful and open to new ideas. There's great work life balance, and not to mention the awesome benefits, lunches,...

    Having a company that has an international presence can make it challenging to get face time with people.

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

    Pros

    I joined Datameer a few months ago and could not be happier with my decision. On a daily basis, I engage with various employees across the business (execs, sales, support, services, product & finance) and everyone is engaged, excited to jump in, and overall great to work with. There is clear direction given (or at least as clear as could be expected in this stage of a company) and with the transparency that is offered,...

    None in the few months I've been here!
