    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 already behind - highly complicated environment to work in the product and customers find it hard to learn MapR and find useful and successful projects out of their investments - to get to production is hard

    I worked at MapR Technologies

    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 selling software is the same as selling legacy hardware.

    Pros

    MapR has some of the best and brightest engineering talent in the industry. On the most part, the engineers are motivated, talented and co-operative and willing to share and exchange ideas. Engineering management is also talented - many . of them come from the top tier universities with excellent track records. I also love the fully stocked break room with drinks and snacks, the ping-pong table, massage chair, and many other amenities.

    Cons

    MapR has been acquired by Hewlett-Packard Enterprises in August 2019 and is now a division of HPE. Due to poor financial management by executives leading to cash flow issues, many talented staff have left the company in the last few months.
