I have been working at Hortonworks full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

All the benefits of a start up company, lots of passionate people who are working toward a goal of massive Hadoop adoption. Great access to senior leadership, the President of the company is generous with his time, as are all managers.

Cons

Not too many, being remote is hard, would be great to have some more regional offices so that employees could build culture together. The headquarters are ok but a little disheveled, although nice perks with lunch offered etc. Some internal politics to navigate, but which company doesn't have that.

Advice to Management

Don't forget about the people in the field, we could use a place to gather with local colleagues too.

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

    Pros

    Learning and development is first class. We have a better management team in place now who have done a lot to improve the culture and work ethic. The office is modern and well located.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of churn this year, although mainly desirable.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to work on the culture and the results will follow.
