    I have been working at DataLab USA (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being green out of school, I wasn't sure what to expect, but with their guidance, training and the hard work that i put in, I'm in a great spot with my career. Make no mistake, if you want to surf through the day and watch youtube videos and post on Instagram, please don't come here. I really like how the people I work with here are smart and we can all work together to make creative solutions and be innovative with new technology, and it's a good team environment.

    Cons

    It's getting a little crowded in the kitchen at Lunchtime, but it's not terrible.

    Advice to Management

    more snacks in the breakroom

    Pros

    Career growth; doesn't feel overly bureaucratic like my last job; Sense of working together to achieve goals. Challenging work. Good team structure.

    Cons

    There is no metro station nearby. Not that it's a deterrent, the drive isn't bad.

    Pros

    If you are eager to learn, you will have a good opportunity to learn a lot in first 2 years, but that's it.

    Cons

    It is a family owned business. The company is not well structured. They give you access to do many things: change production code, disable a task, modify table's content. They ask you to do stuffs without full explanations, and when you make mistakes, they will point fingers to you.
    - micro management
    - unprofessional
    - stressful working environment
    - outdated technology

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

    Pros

    Hiring process was very quick and easy. In only 3 days after I applied I had a phone interview, then was called for an in-person interview, where I met a great team of professionals: the HR manager, the COO and 2 other managers. I got a great offer in less than a week, I accepted it and haven't been happier since. I've learned a lot for the past year and after only 3 months of hard work I got rewarded with a considerable raise. Everyone here is very helpful and understanding. This is a very friendly and family oriented environment. Since I started my family and I have attended a number of great company picnics and activities. Great location, with lots of lunch options around and not much traffic.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    I have been working at DataLab USA full-time

    Pros

    The first thing I noticed about DataLab USA was that I see people here who are incredible at programming, analytics, marketing, client services, and administration, who genuinely like their work and their co-workers. It's a great feeling to come to work and be happy to be here, and really like the people that you spend 8 hrs. a day with 5 days a week. This group of people at DataLab USA are amazing. They are supportive, caring, and encouraging. I know other companies expect their employees to be on-call 24 hours a day, which is very restrictive; DataLab encourages a good work/life balance

    Supportive team, great work/life balance, great medical benefits, 401k, very intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    I can't think of any currently
