Senior ETL Developer (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON27 November 2017
its routine job. Hard to change skill set.

It depends on under which team you are working.

Academy and internal learning are helpful.

Salary is also not great but sufficient though.

Lead small and midsize projects (Current Employee) –  India, Hong Kong, Canada16 July 2017
Has been in this company for 10 years, never seen such downfall.
It was always been a good place to work in past, but since last year scenario has changed. They are laying off people for no reason, giving less score in appraisal, not giving hike on time. I would not recommend this company to anyone anymore.
