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

    Pros

    Fully remote team.
    Skilled and friendly engineers, using modern technologies.
    Great processes and low bureaucracy.
    The company is so transparent in what they do, it is hard for me to think what else they could share to their employees.
    Would recommend to anyone without thinking it twice.

    Cons

    If on a remote position, you have to learn how to balance your work/life time yourself (you'll need to force yourself to step outside and get some sun, or you'll start feeling less energetic, etc).
    I think this is the only negative I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Great job at every level.

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

    Pros

    - Free lunches and snacks, although the selection gets old fast.
    - Transparency through all-hands meetings.

    Cons

    - No 401k matching.
    - Sales is a revolving door.
    - Distributed working environment makes getting things done more difficult.
    - Younger employees very unprofessional, spending most of their time playing Xbox, ping pong, and gossiping. It's high school all over again.
    - Younger managers don’t make time for employees; not focused on employee growth, lack of communication/direction, lack of professionalism, emphasis on favoritism.
    - Employees pressured by HR to leave positive reviews.

    Advice to Management

    - Bring back Eat Club or mix up the catering.
    - Hire experienced managers; stop promoting immature managers who play favorites.
    - Start-up culture doesn’t need to be unprofessional and reward those who slack off.
