Featured Review

Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer Intern

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

Pros

Amazing team and excellent work ethic.

Cons

None come to mind at the moment

Current Employee - Lead Data Scientist

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

Pros

Databricks has some of the smartest minds in industry including both the technical talent and leadership. The company moves very quickly with a strong culture of innovation. I've never felt resource... constrained over my 3 years at the company. The general problem set that we work on is incredibly impactful on both data science and some of the largest data engineering workloads in the industry. I've also really appreciated the insight of both our executive leaders and our advisors (especially Ben Horowitz, who is a hell of a visionary).

Cons

I haven't felt like there are too many downsides of working here. Databricks has been in hyperscale mode for the entire time I've been here. That has posed its own challenges, especially in maturing... mid-level management. I think this problem is largely behind us as there are now better defined career paths and division of labor while maintaining good collaboration
