      Great Company, Ignore the Haters

      Pros

      Solid future! Idera's partnerships create a wonderful team of experts who are helping make this company stronger and more effective. - Cutting edge technology - High levels of funding - Great coworkers - Everyone makes a difference in their role, very gratifying.. - If you do well and work hard, you are rewarded - Great work-life balance - Strong future and company vision going forward

      Cons

      None, there are negative reviews on Glassdoor, but they are mostly incorrect in their ideas. These people are just career hopping, looking to add titles to their name. When you enter a company as a junior SA, don't expect to be made Senior VP after a year. Simple as that.

      Idera - the Worst

      Pros

      Was a good product customers can rely on. Loved working there.

      Cons

      Idera laid off all the original staff of Qubole and struggling to maintain Product and Customer. The last issue where they deleted customer's notebook and was not able to restore them for a month. The system goes down every now and then.

      Brilliant Product, Amazing People... Just Rougher Times

      Aug 25, 2020 - Senior Manager in Santa Clara, CA

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      We're still on track to make difference in the data world, keep an eye on emerging market share for advanced data trends (e.g. clickstream analytics). The product is one-of-a-kind and a dream for the powerful data engineer, machine learning leader. People are very kind here and also smart. So it's easy to boost collaboration and communicate even amongst high stress times.

      Cons

      We've had to consolidate certain teams in effect to Covid, and of course, there's other cost saving initiatives we're up to consider...but that's what you sign up for being part of a fast-paced mature startup. There's expected setbacks you need to power through... especially through 2020. Leadership can do better job to communicate any major changes.

      Gutted

      Pros

      It was a good product for the most part

      Cons

      Since Idera took over, half the company has been gutted. Now they regret laying off so many people and are trying to rehire at lower wages (go figure). Virtually all of engineering was let go. Qubole had a lot of smart people, but most of them have moved on voluntarily or due to cuts. Customers should not trust this new management to act in their best interest. Parts of Qubole will be shuttered or sold off. I would use this as leverage to get out of your contracts.

      Great Startup-like culture

      Pros

      Great open culture. Very customer focused and collaborative. The product is solid, and customers generally have good things to say (check G2Crowd for reviews).

      Cons

      There's a lot of competition, and the company is just figuring out its break through strategy. They have a solid customer base and are growing, but need to have a formidable strategy to take the company to the next level.

      Pros

      It was once a great company

      Cons

      Blame does not matter - C suite sold the company for less than the Borat movie and new leadership has ruined the company. There is no one who can make it work - if you rely on this product for stability or this company for income move on as fast as you can.
