I have been working at Cloudera full-time (More than a year)

Pros

- Arguably the hottest company in the hottest space within all of enterprise tech
- Smartest people you will ever meet work here. Just take a quick look at leadership board on the website!
- Unmatched opportunity within Sales Org, growing at an amazing pace
- Fast paced sales environment, no corporate hierarchy or bureaucracy to deal with that you would see at an Oracle type company
- Best office perks around- laptop, amazing office locations, fully catered meals

Cons

Not enough time in the day! You could also say its hard to retain all the top talent considering how hot the market is. Comp structure could be a bit more competitive as well but considering Cloudera has the pick of the litter it makes sense they may not always be the highest bidder...

Advice to Management

Keep investing in RnD as well as the culture of the company. Don't let it fade as growth continues at such rapid rates.

    Pros

    Great corporate culture and executives. Some of the smartest people I've ever worked with in industry. Very open and transparent.

    Cons

    Improve onboarding and training program to ensure near term and short term expectations for new employees are occurring.

    Thank you for the recommendation on improving onboarding and training. The HR team is currently working on a plan to redo the onboarding session making it more interactive and informative.

    I have been working at Cloudera full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Incredible culture, smartest people in the idustry, product thats changing the world (curing cancer, feeding the world, fighting fraud, etc), revenue growth second to no other company in the valley

    Cons

    management is not frivolous with money in the same some other startups are so no ipads for christmas, lavish parties, etc. Highly competitive market, very complex product. Hard to retain top talent given how hot big data is; cloudera is rarely the highest bidder from a comp perspective and does not have a great equity program.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to foster the amazing culture...
