    I have been working at Uptake full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Uptake is the most data centric company I have ever worked for. Their entire world revolves around data. The data science team is extremely well respected within the organization and drives a lot of the agenda and roadmaps.

    Great continuing education opportunities via their internal trainings.

    Very people focused. Always doing surveys, asking for feedback, holding breakout sessions.

    Cons

    You have to really love data to work here. It doesn't even matter what team you are on.

    There are too many all-hands meetings. I appreciate that they are trying to share information, but we also need time to get work done.

    There are definitely times when you have to work long hours. This can really vary depending on the team and project stage you are at.

    Don't see the Canada office as much as we should.

    Advice to Management

    The all-hands meetings are great, but try to condense them down to 30 minutes.

    Consider paying for meals for employees working late at night.
