I have been working at Cloudwick full-time
Excellent training and great people working there
Low pay compared to same job at other companies
I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cloudwick.
I got a call the very next day I applied. The lady asked me my details and gave a brief introduction about Cloudwick. Second round was technical interview. All questions were simple and any computer science graduate can answer. Another call with the CEO, Mani Chhabra. You can ask any questions about the company to this person.
To all those people who are confused whether this is a start-up or a consultancy. I would say this company is in between. It does have few internal project and also markets your resume to vendors and clients. In other words, its a consultancy transforming into to a company. It is way better than other desi consultancies out there. I did join Cloudwick and left due to personal reasons. The training is pretty intense and it is for 3 months. Your success in big data industry depends on yourself. The training is high level and you should study at least for 60 hours per week. I recommend to join only if you have good knowledge of Java, Data warehousing, UNIX( or at least 2 of the three) or if you already know mapreduce/hadoop pretty well.
P.S: The lady who calls initially exaggerates a lot about the company. Dont fall into her words. But once again, its not a bad place if you are ready to work hard for 3-4 months and do the certifications. You will be in good place. They have an year of contract since they will be spending on your training and certification. The CEO is a nice guy and usually takes care if there are any issues.
