I have been working at Cloudera full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good software engineers have lots of great places to work these days. Cloudera is definitely one of them. The engineering culture is extremely strong and there is a strong emphasis on remaining an independent company.

Cons

I don't consider this a con, but you might. Cloudera doesn't waste money on things like in house bands, chef prepared lunches, flying the whole company somewhere, etc that you see from other startups.

Advice to Management

More moonshots please!

    I worked at Cloudera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hadoop is really hot, and Cloudera has managed to be a leader in that space largely by being first and by hiring quality for the first 50 folks or so. Cloudera on your resume is a door opening credential.

    Cons

    There is no concept of teamwork at Cloudera a bunch of egos and cowboys, all the supportive team players in management left for healthier environments. Be prepared to keep an eye over your shoulder for trouble and view co-workers as competition rather than team-mates. Management is focussed on some IPO or acquisition and not at all concerned about building a decent company culture.

    Advice to Management

    It is probably too late to repair the broken company culture that rewards disrespect and ego. Take the next offer and sell now while your investors can still make a decent return.

    Cons

    -As the company is growing one is not sure where their career is heading.Accolades flow in ,but as soon as one asks growth, conversation becomes very limiting and pessimistic in nature

    Advice to Management

    We are an engineering company at the core and i feel sometimes Sales go on an overdrive to show off themselves.Sales need to be less myopic.
