Public Sector Churn
Written by Public Sector Sales (Former Employee) from Washington, DC on June 4, 2018
Although Hortonworks is a solid company with great technology they have a management issue especially in the Public Sector. Public Sector, the management leads with fear, public verbal beatings, and significant micromanagement. They don't keep employees long if you're not one of the leader's friends.

Potential Public Sector Sales reps and managers - more ... beware, you will either exit early, due to management or they will fire you.

In an interview, I would encourage you to ask how many people have quit or been let go since November 2016. - less
ProsGreat technology. Incredibly smart technical staff. Great benefits and pay.
ConsTerrible Public Sector management.
