    The employees are nice.

    Cons

    Not many data science jobs.

    Pros

    Clear direction on the road map from upper management. Folks want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    Too dependent on being a services company. Has great potential but needs to develop tools that are extendable and reusable for all of their verticals. I think company based R&D funding can go a long way to push them over the hump.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the path you are on by making investments in the people and tools.

    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time (less than a 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

    I worked at Saama Technologies full-time (less than a 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.
