I worked at Cloudwick full-time (More than a year)
Excellent company to get started in Big Data field
Very intensive training
CEO is very down to earth and a great support. He knows how to take the company to the next level
Great growth opportunities
Not any big cons. Just there are some dishonest hires who take advantage of the company and write bad reviews. I am shocked to see one or two bad reviews. They are probably some disgruntled employees who were let go and taking their anger out. Company is too easy sometimes to hire people without verifying. Need a better process of scanning such cheaters who take advantage of company's excellent training program. I have seen with my own experience in this company and have spend some time with such people. Shame on such people who get trained, get great opportunities and this company even provides them housing and so many other facilities but these morons are still not satisfied and spread misleading messages.
Advice to Management
Have a more rigorous way of scanning new hires who can cheat the company.
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cloudwick.
I got a call the very next day I applied. The lady asked me my details and gave a brief introduction about Cloudwick. Second round was technical interview. All questions were simple and any computer science graduate can answer. Another call with the CEO, Mani Chhabra. You can ask any questions about the company to this person.
To all those people who are confused whether this is a start-up or a consultancy. I would say this company is in between. It does have few internal project and also markets your resume to vendors and clients. In other words, its a consultancy transforming into to a company. It is way better than other desi consultancies out there. I did join Cloudwick and left due to personal reasons. The training is pretty intense and it is for 3 months. Your success in big data industry depends on yourself. The training is high level and you should study at least for 60 hours per week. I recommend to join only if you have good knowledge of Java, Data warehousing, UNIX( or at least 2 of the three) or if you already know mapreduce/hadoop pretty well.
P.S: The lady who calls initially exaggerates a lot about the company. Dont fall into her words. But once again, its not a bad place if you are ready to work hard for 3-4 months and do the certifications. You will be in good place. They have an year of contract since they will be spending on your training and certification. The CEO is a nice guy and usually takes care if there are any issues.
