Pros

Market leading company that is continually pushing innovation in analytics. Very unique technology approach gives a competitive advantage against all of the wannabes coming to the space. Datameer is moving fast but with a vision to leverage Hadoop and make analytics available to lost more business people. Great place to work, great team attitude and its fun working with the extended team around the world and with customers.

Cons

None really, the market is moving fast so its challenging but that is what a leading startup is all about.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep focused on the vision and keep pushing to make customers successful and the rest will take care of itself.

    Pros

    The product is awesome. It is well developed, reliable, and they keep upgrading and adding to it. They have had 5 versions released in 4.5 years, and every version has brought major functionality increases with it.

    The people here are very smart, don't take themselves too seriously and like to have fun.

    They have moved to a very nice office in the Mission. It is about a 8 minute walk from the 16th/Mission BART stop. Very accessible, and the building is beautiful.

    You can tell they are about to go into a high growth mode here. There are a lot of new faces around, and with the new product release allowing our companies users to use Datameer on any size job the opportunities are seemingly endless here.

    They also believe in hiring to peoples potential, and are committed to developing their employee's.

    I also have had numerous interactions with the CEO and have not seen any of the behavior mentioned on here from a the review in 2012. I don't believe that is any longer a consideration for employment here.

    Cons

    They are not super perk heavy, which is ok, but having a few bean bag chairs or comfy places to sit in the office would go a long way.

    The only bumps here are caused by growing pains, and that is a good thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A great perk would be a wifi hotspot for each employee to use as they commute into the city. Many of us commute via public transit, and would like to be able to check email, get ready for the day while commuting.

    Pros

    The office is in San Francisco. There are good people who work there.

    Cons

    When the office looks a bit empty, he has his spies walk around to do attendance to see who is not in the office that day and yells at those people the next day.

    If you want to be watched over like children and not trusted, then this would be a good place for you, if not, do yourself a favor and don't waste your time even interviewing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the main reason the culture is so terrible there. The CEO. He is the reason that the turn over is so high.

    Advice to board: ask what the employee turnover rate is.
