A few months ago Cloudera had a stock price above $19 and was about to report another earnings beat (6th straight). CEO Bearden was upbeat about the qtr and company moves then undercut the company by projecting 3% growth. Now the share price is under... — read more
Not sure if this is good news to have Mick Hollison promoted to President due to him being the Chief of Marketing before and we all know how little marketing Cloudera does outside of Facebook. Hopefully, Bearden and Hollison can get Cloudera noticed... — read more
Just checking if anyone currently at Cloudera is hearing anything of another interested company. Could a higher offer be coming during this 30 day open window.
After 3 years, it's been fun but the music stopped for me and 4 others. And still more cuts on the horizon for my former colleagues. We've lost 10 customers in the last 2 months to the big cloud guys. Seriously how much more can we lose? I just hope... — read more
My manager is starting to drop hints that there is another round of lay-offs coming. He doesn't know the numbers yet but engineering are going to be cut. We're already facing product dev delays and any more cuts are going to hit us hard and push us... — read more
I'm happy with where we're going and where AM can take CDP. I know this isn't the Hortonworks we signed on to years ago, but I'm proud that we've pulled through when everyone else told us we'd fail. I'm glad the stock price is going up too because... — read more
I went to sell some stock today from my roth ira and it is up a lot. Is there something I don't know? maybe I'll wait
Here we go. Everyone who is left is hearing the news we are in talks. Bearden cashed out now we just wait to hear who is going to buy us out and where our jobs will go to next
Will this be a good one? Continued growth or another round of layoffs?
Any insight into this move? Are we trying to get sold or not? This move doesn't make sense to me at all. https://blog.cloudera.com/cloudera-acquires-eventador-to-accelerate-stream-processing-in-public-hybrid-clouds/
I think we can find our place for growth if we can integrate well with k8s. Then we can maintain what we have and grow as our customers do. Not as glorious as we thought in 2017, but not as bad as we thought in 2019. Right?
After the last round would think we don't have another coming. Meanwhile all the sale talk has dissipated. Chug along I suppose.
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
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
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".
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...
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 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.
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. — read more
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
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
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
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
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
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.
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
Good work everyone on CDP. Seems things are turning for the better. Not perfect, but better.
Anyone have a clue what's going on? Not really fair that the world hears at the same time as us in the trenches
I've been with Cloudera for 5 years now since the merger with Hortonworks. Initial management transition was a little bumpy but now things are looking a lot better since the last 12 months. CDP transition is looking great and I am looking for... — read more
I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see strong enough arguments to convince me otherwise. Every day here looks worse and worse. Can you imagine what this company will look like in the near future?
Most senior management are waiting for pkg n spending time around doing nothing .. why pay hefty to them each month?
Did anyone get let go in the recent Sales Reorg?
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.
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.
