The latest conversations about Tech
Technical Account Manager
Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

1. industry is incredibly interesting 2. solution is simply the best (I actually sang that. is that a tag line for some company already?) 3. growth - Look around you and you'll see data, bigdata, ai, ml, IoT, etc are everywhere and growing 4. Smart people - I am incredibly humbled when I speak to those around me. I consider myself intelligent and I love to learn/read but man...these people are hard to keep up with 5. helpful this industry, not just this company, has the ability to make incredibly positive impacts to our world; not just our respective home countries. this can help gov's be better, more relevant, more altruistic... just more... instead of how we feel about them today. this can help us live to 140. this can help eliminate crime. this can help live be easier and giving people the ability to do what they love vs what brings home the money to provide for their families although smart even our cio/cto/ceo/cro respond to questions by little old us helping with technical knowledge or industry business insight 6. my direct manager - he cares, is genuine, smart, hard working and makes you want to work hard for him but also lets you have a balanced life to be a good parent, friend, husband, etc.
1. If you want a job that is easy and doesn't force you to learn then look elsewhere 2. Too much MapR social media vs industry Social insights 3. Although I have seen a change in 1 year the familiarity with MapR is still low. I ran in to one of our largest "partners" the other day and he had no clue who we were. not we are a late stage startup and that is our job in sales so I get it but it's still a valid con2

Great product! Awesome benefits and perks!
Toxic sales culture stemming from young and inexperienced managers/leadership.

Differentiated product with unique IP and integration with other technologies
- New management has made it difficult to conduct business with customers - Working remote is very difficult - Hiring unqualified employees that are former personal connections and don't add any value - Management does not communicate to field (maybe once every three months via phone) - Product Management is scattered with no CTO, which is degrading the product - No technology vision, direction, or instruction - No understanding of market, how to sell and overall landscape - Promised IPO that has slipped last 3 years - Highly technical sale, most of the bright technical people have left, leaving a steep learning curve for new employees - No marketing, - SDR/ISR team is mismanaged and does not contribute to the business7

The best technology in the space - one of it's kind.
- Low IQ and Common Sense of the incoming Sales and Sales Management from Oracle. Many of them were fired from Oracle due to poor performance. Oracle sales folks don't have talent as the products sold themselves. - Sales Engineers that quietly do the heavy lifting are not valued. - Product Management & Marketing is so bad that they leave out of shame. Only the worst of the lot are on board.7

Fast paced, collaborative, people who really care and go the extra mile to help each other. The technology is exciting, and the teams start to feel like family very quickly
company has become an absolute mess since Matt Mill's departure. Very engineering focused, sales is looked at as more of a nuisance and an expense than a value add. The fact that the entire sales force was let go is very indicative of the culture - as a sales rep you are expendable to executives and the CEO John Schroeder.5

differentiated technology is a plus in the market Data scientists are unrivaled in the industry
new execs in charge from Oracle think they are selling a cheaper version of Oracle. The hore they friends who dont have a clue what MapR does company culture is very weak sale comp is below market market as a whole is over hyped.14

The technology is great and the people at MapR are very talented. It doesn't feel like a small company and there is a lot of resources available for training to get ramped up quickly. The leadership team is very strong and MapR is gaining more and more momentum everyday.
Most enterprise accounts have chosen a Hadoop platform provider and lumps MapR into that category, though MapR is highly differentiated. The challenge is showing the technology's strengths that go way beyond just Hadoop distribution.

Technology exceeds competitors Reimbursement for gym and cell phone Free Friday lunch
No company culture what so ever Teams do not communicate with each other Management is extremely slow and political Extremely poor employee retention rate across the organization Talks of going IPO continues to get pushed aside Lack of technical resources for sales and business groups Low entry pay Unable to locate colleagues contact info Extremely long sales cycle9

None to report. All look bleak.
Its a shame that these Managers do not know what they are doing. They let a lot of people go who were solid and standouts in their respective fields. A good example is a VP who was just named as a person to watch for 2018 and recognized in their stature in the Tech industry. Ironically, it showed that she was still employed at MapR but reality is that she was let go a few months ago. Am sure she will land somewhere and do great things but this shows the cluelessness of this Management team.11
