Best Analytics Companies to Work For

Glassdoor released their ratings of the companies listed in the Computer Reseller News “Big Data 100.”  The ratings are of current and past employees and are based on:

  • % who would recommend the company to a friend
  • % of employees who approve of the CEO

There were some newish companies at the top of the list that are not exactly household names.  Companies like: Paxata, Qubole, Gainsight, InsightSquared, Trifacta, Kyvos Insights, SiSense and ThoughtSpot.  Google came in at #9 and data visualization rock star Looker rounded out the top 10.

If you are not familiar with Glassdoor, they are a great way to check out potential employers.  They also have some useful tools, like their new salary calculator.

Analytics professionals across the spectrum have a lot of options these days when it comes to potential employers.  Forrester analyst Boris Evelson noted in a tweet last week that there were 67 BI vendors to include in a report that he was writing. “No way can the market support that many,” he wrote.

So choose your employer wisely.  There is likely to be consolidation in the years ahead.
