      It is a good technology in the big data space trying its best to be something special. Strong learning opportunities.

      Depend heavily on existing customers. Struggling to find an angle to move forward. Messaging often does not resonate with new prospects.

      Pros

      good technology, friendly employees, some free food

      Cons

      -worst culture i've ever worked in -Sales team is made up of former oracle employees who have never worked for a startup. a very tiny fraction of the sales team attains quota. -MASSIVE turnover, especially on the sales side -the entire executive team was just let go (CEO, COO, CRO). the founder is now back in charge as CEO (this could be a Pro, I don't know...) -LAYOFFS - 2 weeks ago the company fired about 75% of the inside sales team and every recruiter except for 1 person. Attrition is at an all time high -Very political environment -The company still pitches that it is going public (it never will) and tries to sell candidates on worthless stock. My guess is the founder is selling the company (he's a smart guy who has sold 2 companies in the past) and is reducing company size to increase the bottom line -My advice - stay away
