    I worked at MapR Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    MapR’s only promising product is the File System (now also refered to as MapR-XD). All the other bits around the database, streaming, Kubernetes, PACC and the AI fuzz they are making actually either don’t work, have not been tested through load or are just hyped up accordingly with the markets move. Great place to work as most sales reps left.

    Cons

    - MapR’s product is way to expensive for what you get - Hybrid cloud solution literally does not work without scripting in AWS, Azure or GCP - no integration in the product - Management: great place to work now as nearly all managers left or have been asked to leave - Product Development: due to the management reshuffle, no real product development is happening and as the third big data vendor in the market, MapR is...

    Advice to Management

    - partner with a large software company and integrate the MapR product in a bundle and remove the name MapR out of the equation - stop the database development as the MapR-DB offering is way behind NoSQL competitors such as Mongo or Cassandra

    Pros

    Great product and managers at certain levels. Disruptive product adopted by leading companies.

    Cons

    Erractic hiring procedures in certain regions that involves nepotism. Low than expexted sales professions who gets promoted for not achieving goals. Nepotism occuring frequently and allowed to exist, driving higher achievers to leave. Some work 110% whilst other are hired to travel to events, have coffee catchups and play the blame games. Titles do not match responsibility. Hiring too many old school ex EMC who thinks...

    Pros

    Working at Mapr gives very good exposure to Hadoop ecosystem. People are highly skilled and it is the best place for learning distributed systems.

    Poor marketing and sales. Engineering needs to share their knowledge more often.
