    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.

    Cons

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

    I have been working at MapR Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, collaborative, people who really care and go the extra mile to help each other. The technology is exciting, and the teams start to feel like family very quickly

    Cons

    company has become an absolute mess since Matt Mill's departure. Very engineering focused, sales is looked at as more of a nuisance and an expense than a value add. The fact that the entire sales force was let go is very indicative of the culture - as a sales rep you are expendable to executives and the CEO John Schroeder.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and start over, or seek acquisition

      Pros

      The product was the companies strength, but also its weakness.

      Cons

      No leadership, ever changing messaging, lack of direction and no one kept accountable.

      Advice to Management

      Focus on building a business with a strong P&L rather than acting as a scale-up.

      Pros

      Clearly the board sees something good in the exec team.

      Cons

      Every company has its share of ups and down. Communication is key to building consensus and motivating the team to help solve the challenges. That is why the team is there for. The leadership team at MapR holds a 'us vs. them' approach, With close to zero communication and exaggerated truths, the leadership got what it deserved, a team that has no way to row in the same direction to help get past the problems. Can't...

      I worked at MapR Technologies full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Met some amazing people during my 2.5 years there. Unfortunately those same amazing people all jumped ship before the latest sweeping layoff hit the rest of us.

      Cons

      Employee culture is non-existent. Messaging is inconsistent and changes monthly. Communication is cryptic. Harassment is present. Zero support for professional development. Employees are blindsided by organizational changes far too often, which has turned into the norm. The office environment mimics that of a graveyard.

      Advice to Management

      Take care of your people instead of treating them all like a number.
