    I am a could consultant and know the field well enough.

    Long term the companies you mentioned above will not thrive. They can survive but not thrive. Stick to the big 3 cloud provider.

    Good luck

      Thanks, I value your feedback. How much time do you think these companies have before they start closing shops ?

      Its hard to predict , read about map R.

      Aim for highest take home, learn as much as you can in the cloud job and keep applying. Once you have could experience it would be easy to switch.

      Also, get certified .

      Hey, thanks. I read about MapR. It was all of a sudden and no one saw it coming. I feel like I should join OCI

      Why not stay in Intel and apply later?

      I think people could guess how MapR would turn out, it was not a surprise.

      Amazon guy is right about Cloudera. You will observe from layoff news that "which team in OCI" matters too. Nevertheless, OCI is definitely a safer bet than Cloudera.

      Fireeye might turn out any which way, I don't know much about security.

    Cloudera won't be a bad bet. There's definitely a bit of uncertainty about the stock price but it's not as bad as it once was.

    In general things internally are smoothing out and people are finding their rhythm post merger. In terms of long term financial sustainability, cloudera can be around longer than you plan to stay there. It has cash and signed recurring contracts.

    Work is interesting and I feel I'm getting paid decently, they took care of us after the stock dropped a lot. If it goes up I'll be even happier :)

    You also can use this as a stepping stone as others are saying. I constantly get pings from top tier company recruiters. We're still small enough that the work has impact and you get interesting projects.

    I’ve only heard complaints from people who work at Cloudera.

    You can join cloudera but switch to Amazon, Google or Azure as soon as you can after that

    Work at Cloudera and get some experience working with big data. Then move to FAANG.

    Cloudera is a best steppingstone for a great career
