Does AltaML offer vacation time?

Pros

-A strong diverse, inclusive and collaborative culture. Everyone's thoughts and perspectives are valued here. -Lots of opportunities to learn and grow professionally. Managers are supportive of your professional growth plans and goals. Learning is encouraged. Infact you get access to Udemy and can take all sorts of interesting courses. -An amazing culture with some of the most friendliest and intelligent people I've ever met. From Friday socials to hot sauce tasting challenges and some pretty competitive board game competitions, people here really know how to have and make the workplace fun. -The office space is pretty amazing, with lots of snacks and tons of Bubbly! -Unlimited vacation! I've never worked at a place before where managers / team members encourage one another to take time off and take care of themselves.

Cons

-Offices in 3 different cities means that it can sometimes be challenging to connect and form deeper relationships with people across the company (especially those not on your team).

Does AltaML offer relocation assistance?

Pros

Friendly company. Decent new benefits package. Very friendly to parents. It is not a bad environment by any means. It is just that all you are doing is stuff that if you didn't do, oh well, on to the next thing that will be half done. I would recommend AltaML for anyone who wanted to take a career break.

Cons

Spend a ton of time on presentations, writing reports nobody reads and are never finished and waiting for decisions that never arrive. Very little gets done for how many people are here. Busyness is the norm.

Advice to Management

I don't care anymore.

Decent new benefits package.

How are the career development opportunities at AltaML?

Pros

AltaML has been a great company to work at. The culture of humble and gritty is seen through and through. We have the ability to connect with a levels to the CEOs as needed and everyone is present and engaged. It's happy place to be and one where I've never seen people so invested and wanting to be at the Organization. Everyone in involved and cares and sees the potential for AI and the growth opportunity for AltaML. The organization values training and development as well as micro credentials with our hyperscale partners such as Microsoft, AWS etc and this can be done on work time as we see it as important aspects to our roles with customers. From hot sauce challenges to socials with the beer fridge every week to donuts galore we are working on the most optimal hybrid environment where we can connect socially with our peers and be engaged with eachother in a fun setting. We have the opportunity to bring in talent as associates and enable them to grow into the roles they want to see at all levels. The value of diversity , equity and inclusion underpins everything we do and the way we operate and think. I have never been in this diverse and inclusive company in my career and it's wonderful to see.

Cons

There has been turnover over the last 7 months due to the "great resignation". This term is not coined by us but the market with so many companies as they experience this as well. This brings with it some challenges but we have and continue to overcome this Scaling companies means hands on for everyone and at times individuals who have not been in a startup or scale up may not know how to work and operate in them as it's different than large organizations. But there is power in working in this size of company.

What kind of career opportunities exist at AltaML?

Pros

The internship at AltaML was a fantastic opportunity to work on challenging work alongside and learn from brilliant people from across the organization. Everyone made me feel like an equal regardless of my internship position. I was given many opportunities to learn new skills and contribute to various internal process improvements and client work that left me feeling inspired to keep growing in the role and my career. Highly recommend AltaML to anyone, intern or not. The culture and work environment made work a blast and I really enjoyed coming into the office to see everyone and be amongst the energy - especially during Friday social events!

Cons

It is a fast-paced work environment where you get the opportunity to work with multiple clients and internal projects. If you prefer project work where you get to focus on one project at a time, this may not be the place for you.
