    I worked at Qubole full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Qubole has been a good place to work since they have a great product, have met some great people along the way, and feel that they compensate their employees fairly.

    Cons

    --Marketing leadership doesn't know how to position ourselves in the market --G TM strategy has never been fully ironed out from day one --Invests too much in product and little in marketing and sales --Leadership claims to be transparent, but when the going et's rough, they hide behind the reality of the situation --Has never built a culture around growth and development for their employees

    I have been working at Qubole full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Amazing culture - Great technology you get exposed to - Very bright and hard working employees - Free food - Loads of fun events - Typical bay area start-up attitude towards problem solving

    Cons

    - The problem, historically, has been our inability to differentiate ourselves in the market. Given too many players in the same domain, it makes the problem worse. - Product reach, marketing etc should be better than it is today. - More business focus and being clever at monetizing the services provided.
