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 – more... 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.
