      All talk and no play

      Pros

      The only pro is flexibility which is to say that you can work whenever you want, but depending on the project that flexibility may not be something you can avail. Another pro would be the learning goals, but most people just make some one else take the tests for them. So if you truly spend time in learning the skills and pass the assessments then only it is a pro.

      Cons

      - No control on working hours, depending on the project manger you life can be hell. If you try to speak up against the tawdry middle management, then your life will only get difficult. - Spineless HR department whose entire job is to project management and pin the blame on fresher or employees who have little experience. In the eyes of the organisation these are expendable resources - Lack of challenging projects, infrastructure to carry out large scale analytics. For an organisation that boasts itself as a big data and analytics company they have servers which can't even handle GBs of data let alone TBs. These experiences are not my own, I had a good time in the organisation and on my own experience I would rate the organisation pretty well. But I've seen firsthand what the organisation does to other people who are oppressed by middle management and when they finally speak up, they are crushed by the very hand that promises to lend extreme trust and what-not. Given all this I cannot in good faith give a positive outlook for the organisation.

      Really difficult working experience

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Exposure to a client facing role as well as potential to develop career for a fresher

      Cons

      1) Really poor middle management - Allocation of resources is a huge problem for the company. I was forced to accept a role by the staffing team and told that I'd be facing bad consequences if I did not. This has resulted in me (a Data Scientist) working on supporting/reporting projects with no learning for the past 8 months now 2) Weak Team/Project Leads - The project leads are completely spineless in terms of points of view towards analytical integrity of the projects. They agree to whatever the client's demands are without thinking about being a client partner rather prefer just being a slave 3) There has been politics even at the Consultant level regarding ownership of work/promotions

      Pros

      Work Life Balance Culture Timing Work from home Good IT administrator

      Cons

      Rusted mindset and egoistic Middle Management. Your skills and good thinking capability doesn't matter if you've hurt the ego of your manager and also if your manager doesn't understand the work he/she will keep pleasing toxic clients.
