    Pros

    Amazing and solid technology, but that's about it.

    High level of attrition/layoffs due to upper management's inability to focus on direction. Product marketing focus is technical with no message to business user.

    I have been working at MapR Technologies full-time

    Pros

    Good work/life balance (if you know how to fight for your own good, don't be afraid to escalate to HR)

    Cons

    - Unfair performance evaluation: very very very little bonus (50% in stock which is basically no value) and it's not based on how good your performance is or how hard you work. It's literally based on management's discretion (aka if they like you or not, could be nothing even when you are a super star in the team). - Layoffs: LOTS OF layoffs due to company not performing or even politics - Security/Privacy: management...

    Schroeder's technology vision Very happy customers Operational agility to make necessary changes to the business Very smart people

    Cons

    There are some bullies among us No women on the BoD or at the C-level, few women everywhere else - less than 20% Culture doesn't seem to be valued by executives No 401k matching Ridiculously small bonus program

    Advice to Management

    Deal with the bullies, recruit more women, and let's either go public or sell this company.

    Pros

    Mapr is a place for influencers. The kind of people who work at MapR and have grown to become experts in data management and data science, and they're pushing the envelope to make a data platform that performs faster, scales better, and is easier to manage. They are sophisticated people who think about analytics differently because they take for granted how the MapR platform reduces the barriers that often block people...

    Cons

    Too many people leave MapR. They learn really marketable skills, then understandably, use them to find new jobs with higher salaries.

    Pros

    Plenty to learn both from the technology the company is building as well as how to apply it to real problems at massive scale.

    Cons

    Certain people in management are more concerned that they have the idea rather than letting their team create and foster an idea. Response often take the form of "I did that exact thing back at this other huge company 20 years ago". This generally creates the problem that those people are living in the past. This is NOT all managers, but there are a couple like that within the org.

    Advice to Management

    Get the right people for those upper management roles.
