    Pros

    AWESOME DATA SCIENCE CULTURE! It's amazing to work with and learn from very talented data scientists. The data science team gives you opportunities to deal with different datasets, to solve variety of industry problems, to explore cutting edge techniques, and to contribute to open source communities. Also, the data science management cares about you, listen to your opinions and make changes if necessary.

    Great opportunities to work with people outside of the data science team. I've learnt so much from engineers, product managers, UX designers, etc. Most people I've interacted with are extremely smart and nice to work with.

    Great office environment, coffee, food, fruit and snacks. I personally enjoy those benefits a lot

    Cons

    IOT is new, Data Science is new, as a startup, Uptake definitely made wrong decisions before and still has a lot of challenges. It's very hard to grow a startup but I'm happy to see Uptake sailing in the right direction

    Advice to Management

    Less re-orgs and keep talented people
