    I worked at Cloudwick full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent company to get started in Big Data field
    Very intensive training
    CEO is very down to earth and a great support. He knows how to take the company to the next level
    Great growth opportunities

    Cons

    Not any big cons. Just there are some dishonest hires who take advantage of the company and write bad reviews. I am shocked to see one or two bad reviews. They are probably some disgruntled employees who were let go and taking their anger out. Company is too easy sometimes to hire people without verifying. Need a better process of scanning such cheaters who take advantage of company's excellent training program. I have seen with my own experience in this company and have spend some time with such people. Shame on such people who get trained, get great opportunities and this company even provides them housing and so many other facilities but these morons are still not satisfied and spread misleading messages.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more rigorous way of scanning new hires who can cheat the company.

    "Performs malpractices. Markets fake resumes."

    I worked at Cloudwick full-time

    Pros

    I wish there were any. Don't go with positive comments. Those are most likely been written by internal staff. Not worth of a single star apart from a decent training.

    Cons

    Right from the very first call that one will receive from a lady who talks about recruitment to the CEO of this company to the end all are fraud and manipulator. Don't fall prey to that lady's american accent.

    Do they cook up resumes and asks their candidates to tamper resumes as per Job description - Yes
    Do they pay during training - No
    Do they pay while on bench - No
    Do they comply to the benefits and salary that they mention in offer letter - No

    Given this, you can decide what sort of company you feel it is.

    Advice to Management

    Stop exploiting and over promising innocent non-immigrant students

    Pros

    Some people confuse this with a consultancy because it started as a staffing company 7-8 years ago, but it has come a long way. It is operating as an established partner service partner with almost every big name in the Big Data industry - Cloudera, Databricks, Datastax, Hortonworks, AWS to name the top few; has its own funded products and projects.
    1. Small teams or individual level projects.
    2. Hardworking employees who are passionate and up to date with the latest technologies in Big Data.
    3. Growing number of internal projects and their own products / solutions.
    4. Pragmatic management and great leadership.
    5. Competitive salaries, transparent payrolls. Shorter appraisal cycles than any other company I have heard.

    Cons

    I did not come across any major con or any false promises which were made by the management. It is operating as a very competitive and individual focused start up. If you are an asset to the company, the CEO will make sure you are paid well and your growth does not stop. If you are not, well then you would not resonate with it. I have seen people work on new projects every few months and others who have found their comfort zones in supporting legacy projects and like to stay in them. Those people cannot really complain about the work or money.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job. Try and recruit a more diverse crowd.

    "Big Data Engineer"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Cloudwick full-time

    Pros

    It is one of the best companies to work for specially if your goal is learn big data and its industry.
    They provide one of the best training and really take the pain to make you learn. It depends upon person to person how much knowledge he or she could soak. But they provide tools for you learn and progress.

    Cons

    Some people take this as a guarantee that once they are in Cloudwick, they can now relax. But as mentioned in the Pros, it is entirely upto the individual that how much he learns and takes every opportunity provided by this company more seriously. Some folks blame the company in the end but they are accountable for their own actions. They can really make this company as a ladder to their success. This company does not have any big cons, in fact one of the best consulting companies around in the field of big data.

    Advice to Management

    Great CEO and other management group. Stay like this.
