Pros: free and great coffee anytime and snacks occasionally. flexible hours. occasional celebrations.
A typical day started with a briefing meeting in the morning. The main goal was to complete the targeted work. It also involved other adhoc work.
I learned how to manage time well and how to interact with people in a professional manner.
My co-workers were very friendly, fun and welcoming. They really made me feel comfortable within the company.
The hardest part of the job was to acquire missing information. There was need to make preliminary assumptions and come up with a preliminary model given that there was data missing. This proved really difficult for me because I did not have enough experience. Wrong assumptions led to ridiculous models. I had to do trial and error to come up with a reasonable model, which proved to be very time consuming.
The most enjoyable thing about the job was that it was challenging and I am a person who likes challenges. It was also gave me a good insight of the industry as I needed to know a lo of different available products.
