    Pros

    # Unlimited vacation # If you are from Latentview/Anna University than there is no need for interview, wildcard entry for for such institutions. # If you massage the ego of Team leads, Business Value Manger you will get promotion in one year. # You can become data scientist here without even knowledge of excel (forget about python/R/ML), since most of the team leads have not written a single line of codes in their whole career.

    Cons

    # You will forget what you have learned before joining FO Data Science Team # Trust me don't go for this profile "Finance & Data Operations Data Science Team is tasked with delivering tangible value to business units within Shell through data-driven decision making. This position is part of Finance & Data Operations Data Science team delivering advanced analytics projects for different businesses within Shell. The individual will join a growing global data science organization spanning both on/offshore". # Good for people who want to prepare for MS/Civil Services, since you are not expected to do any work.
