Thread regarding Cloudera layoffs

Things are looking ... not as awesome as had hoped.

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 have been told to reduce the number of RSUs awarded to new hires and we will likely see "options" instead going forward (which are already underwater for everyone on my team as it is) as cash burn is managed.

Expect open reqs to go unfilled for the foreseeable future. This is a moot point as we can't get anyone to replace the 10+ that left in Sept and the 5 that already left in Oct. Hiring people don't want to answer our calls these days as they are unable to fill positions from even 3 months ago.

Same here. Lots of spots can't get filled and candidates are not thrilled to come and work here.

Hadoop is dead and we can't even get customers who are on Azure onto CDP (yet). The whole decision to start on AWS was so short sighted.

And LHWX customers are furious we don't have a migration path that doesn't involve a complete lift and shift to a whole new platform.

If they are going to have to move PB of data, they are just going to move it into something other than CDP. On prem customers are getting hosed.
