    Pros

    Good work/life balance (if you know how to fight for your own good, don't be afraid to escalate to HR)

    Cons

    - Unfair performance evaluation: very very very little bonus (50% in stock which is basically no value) and it's not based on how good your performance is or how hard you work. It's literally based on management's discretion (aka if they like you or not, could be nothing even when you are a super star in the team). - Layoffs: LOTS OF layoffs due to company not performing or even politics - Security/Privacy: management overrides lots of internal controls in the company. Do not expect your email privacy is secured in this company. - No room to grow: management is trying to secure their jobs so acting like control freak and unwilling to develop talented people. - Lousy treatment when you give 2-week notice: they started to make you work EVERY single minute (even when you are sick or have emergency) and take away your bonus no matter how good your performance have been/how hard you have worked

    Pros

    Mapr is a place for influencers. The kind of people who work at MapR and have grown to become experts in data management and data science, and they're pushing the envelope to make a data platform that performs faster, scales better, and is easier to manage. They are sophisticated people who think about analytics differently because they take for granted how the MapR platform reduces the barriers that often block people from harnessing value from their data. Important companies are using MapR to build applications that do amazing things with data. That exposure to the cutting-edge of analytics and machine learning is what gives people at MapR a unique perspective in today's data driven world. It's great to be part of an organization that plays such a central role in so many marketable skills, like machine learning and data science. Another nice thing: the MapR culture embraces work/life balance. People take full advantage of the unlimited PTO policy. Managements treats us like professionals, so there is a lot of trust.

    Cons

    Too many people leave MapR. They learn really marketable skills, then understandably, use them to find new jobs with higher salaries.

    Pros

    Plenty to learn both from the technology the company is building as well as how to apply it to real problems at massive scale.

    Cons

    Certain people in management are more concerned that they have the idea rather than letting their team create and foster an idea. Response often take the form of "I did that exact thing back at this other huge company 20 years ago". This generally creates the problem that those people are living in the past. This is NOT all managers, but there are a couple like that within the org.
