Good work everyone on CDP. Seems things are turning for the better. Not perfect, but better.
Topics regarding layoffs at Cloudera
I'm sticking around for the same reasons as everyone else .. w the rumors going around of RB closing in on sale it feels so close to option payoff and then freedom But every day here is torture Anyone else going through this calculus? I don't... — read more
Let's try to be objective. Things are bad here .. but they're not as bad as we thought they would be, say, last summer. Since last summer we've managed to get a decent amount into CDP AND add new customers fairly consistently. What happened to... — read more
The cycle has started, layoff sales, the pipeline dries up. With no revenue coming in from new sales, layoffs have to occur, marketing gets cut as excess administration costs, R&D stops, no new products. You can watch it die on the vine, since you... — read more
I am an ex Clouderan. Left before the company went public. During my tenure, I was astounded at the 30% turnover (mostly people leaving)....very toxic work environment (inflated egos, out of touch management that hand drunk too much of their own... — read more
Can we call back people who were laid off last week and actually get rid of those who should have been cut a long time ago for being completely useless? Can we for once actually lay off the right people (or better yet, fire them because they sure as... — read more
First JBoss to RedHat then SpringSource to Vmware then Hortonworks to Cloudera now Cloudera to IBM. Welcome to Rob's version of "Flip or Flop". And all the clients thought that Rob cared...
I was one of the laid off. They did say it was company wide, but not how many. I was on a team of about 12 and afaik I was the only one on that team to be let go. However our team was directly profitable, so others might have been harder hit.
I will bet what is next is an announcement that Cloudera has just been sold to either IBM, Accenture or weirdly Pivotal. I'm betting on one of the first two. Welcome to another "flip or flop".
No way they are delaying the layoffs now. Lists of numbers are getting circulated for reductions now. Every single opening is getting turned down to fulfill. Rob is turning this place into Docker, but with a worse product and angry customers.
Bunch were told not to book travel 3 weeks before SKO. Now the field is getting ready for another round. Hearing at least 7% in the Americas. Mostly sales and engineering on Storm (as if anyone is surprised), Hbase, and ozone/hdfs dev. Named... — read more
We're hearing that a large number of sales and field consultants are going to be removed in Jan. No surprises really as not many customers are taking up the shift to cdp. Still bleeding cash and hearing takeover rumours is not good for the staff... — read more
This merger didn't fix anything that was broken. It only made it worse. Sales leadership 2x+ prices for customers and are now trying to bleed customers on a "capacity" based pricing model. Hell, this goes against why anyone would use... — read more
Just go notified that my team will expect to absorb a good chunk of their health care costs in 2020 and all "raises" will be on the bonus/commission side with nothing added to their base. Legacy HWX people are going to really gripe about this. We... — read more
All I’m going to say is that after the merger, I am disappointed to see the work culture at the newly formed company. I was a Hortonworks employee and the work culture at Cloudera is quite negative and unpleasant. I also want to say that this is... — read more
Its looking pretty bleak! Pretty soon, we will all either be out of work, or working for MS, Microsoft or Google. God help us!
The end of a 10 year lie.
After MAPR officially closes it's doors in June, Cloudera MGMT is already talking about jettisoning another 220 employees. Mostly from sales and PS. Expect an announcement here shortly. Analysts are expecting 10-15% less revenue and Cloudera is... — read more
Nearly a dozen more field sales hands headed for the door and recruiters can't find bodies to backfill. Sounds like Cloudera has nearly purged all the Hortonworks staff from upper management roles (except for a token few) and the Cx0 level spots are... — read more
I guess there were more announcements of PMs getting pushed out at SKO in Seattle. One source said that nearly a dozen legacy Hortonworks PMs got the boot and will be gone in April. — read more
Engineering got popped and 6% shown the door. Amazingly, Tom still has a job. Their hopeless CDP ("formerly Unity") is a mashup of what's left from two garbage trucks running into each other. Most of the sales leadership is cloudera now and over half... — read more
Because it just big dooped on a lot of good people.
Big day today. I wish Clouderans best of luck. Keep your heads up high.
Every team in every location has been impacted by the layoffs over summer 2018, even engineering (but mostly Sales, HR, Marketing). Many left on by choice after that, too.
Cloudera employees leaving and layoffs started this past week. They are not going to be hiring many folks either as they try ti please Wall street.
Did anyone get let go in the recent Sales Reorg?
