    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    If you're interested in data analytics, this is a good place to start. The team has a very family-friendly feel to it. Constantly hiring, especially new grads, with a good training program.

    Cons

    Not enough investment in infrastructure yet. Still many manual administrative processes. Getting better. Several clients are big and have been in place for years, and so have more of a bottom-line, less exciting feel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company values are strong. Keep focusing on employee experience and making being an employee easier.

    Gross disgusting employees

    • Culture & Values

    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    I wasn't here long enough to see anything positive about the company.

    Cons

    The employees are disgusting. You will see them blowing their nose into the bathroom sink. Washing their feet/hands in the toilets. They constantly make calls while in the bathroom, half of their conference calls must be made from the bathroom. They throw trash on the floor constantly and only half of them seem to wash their hands afterwards. If you think I'm only talking about the men you're wrong, the women are just as bad if not worse. I left as soon as I could find another job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Teach your employees about American customs, hygiene and etiquette.

    Cutting Edge BI/Big Data Firm

    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Campbell, CA
    Current Employee - Senior Project Manager in Campbell, CA

    I have been working at Saama Technologies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company is on the leading edge of building and implementing BI applications/solutions. They have innovative and new ideas about how to take their client's business and move it forward in revenue and market share. You get to work with some of the best in the business. The executive team is sharp and focused.

    You get 3 weeks vacation with one week downtime at Christmas. The HR department could use a more structured training program for junior consultants. Saama does hire a lot of new college graduates, and they come in smart and hungry and willing to learn. Some are superstars that are immediately successful; some struggle and they need more coaching and support.

    Overall, if you have good skills in BI, your career will take off. The company is hiring a lot of new Big Data talent and I can see new projects rolling in.

    Cons

    The work environment is intense. You have to be willing to work hard and play hard. You also have to fly to new work sites and perform under pressure. If you don't like a fast paced environment that really challenges you, then you should proceed with caution. The work life balance is difficult when you are on the road managing an important project. You have to be dedicated to do what it takes and that can be difficult for your family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Company is growing fast. Please make sure that the business processes change and evolve to support that growth. The smart people all work on hot projects for clients and, as a result, there is an underinvestment in company infrastructure. A dedicated Presales practice would be a nice career path that doesn't exist today.
