      interview process , arrogant sign of company

      Pros

      Quick process, on time and flexible

      Cons

      Having had and spent time going through a 3 stage interview process, they didn’t see fit to give any feedback after the 3rd and final interview, I detected a sense of arrogance while going through the process and their lack of any sense they have a need to give feedback just confirmed the warning signs I picked up during the 3 interviews. Interview process was very quick and a little disorganised which again I took as a warming sign, I was interested in learning about them and tbh my main driver to continue onto the 2nd and 3rd stages of the interviews. I also pick up a sense of a company at a turning point and a little desperate.

      Pros

      Salary, stock plan Strong growing market

      Cons

      Narcissistic leadership culture. As a result of the merge between Hortonworks and Cloydera the cooperative culture exhanged in one of ‘command and control’. Top mgt is only interested in selling the company and run with the money.
