"Great Company to work"

Approves of CEO


Pioneers in the big data world - so you get to learn the technology before anyone else could. Great colleagues - if you are working in a bigger team but mostly you will be engaging with clients.


Not many cons. Lot of your work style depends on client whom you work with, But If you are not happy with a client you can move to other one easily.
