      Pros

      5 weeks pto and trust me you'll need it with all the headaches you'll face

      Cons

      Managers are not technical and have no sense of direction. Promotions are very political and often do not go to the hardest working person. If you get a bad manager (which is very likely) you won't even have the chance to take on impactful projects, they will just go to the manager's favorite person. Honestly, I commend the marketing for this company, they draw you in like they are an elite data science company. Once you get in, you realize that a lot of data science roles are a result of title inflation and you will literally just pull data/produce reports for consultants to steal all the credit. ML work is reserved for a very limited number of people, and if you get a chance you'll probably just use datarobot for the most part. Leadership talks the talk but don't take any actions when it counts the most.

      Great PTO, but the company oversells itself

      Pros

      PTO, work/life balance sometimes, company culture(for the most part).

      Cons

      This company is the biggest marketing sham. The perception of 84.51 is that it is a leading data science company doing highly interesting work. This couldn't be further from the truth. Many "data scientists" do not do any type of statistical work at all, not modeling, not A/B testing, not anything. Many data science roles are essentially data analysts, which is super fun because there is still a lot of holdover from the old duhnhumby days, which means many folks that you will work with do not have a clue how to work efficiently with new tools like Python/Git. There are so many internal solutions that have been duct taped together over the years from poor maintenance, which is one reason QA at this company is a nightmare. If you have to do QA, good luck, because those data scientists that are holdovers from the old days? They write awful code that is awful to QA. When you're not looking at the code, you'll be doing something even more tedious like looking over an Excel file line by line because that's how we do QA.

      Pros

      High amount of time off and generally good co-workers.

      Cons

      The work is highly repetitive and gives limited avenues for growth. Your ability to succeed will highly depend on your manager as will your enjoyment of the work. Advancement becomes very political quickly and does not give the impression that you will have room for career growth at the company. This seems like a company that would be best to start at and then move out of once some experience has been built up.

      Good Company with some Growing Pains

      Pros

      Work Life Balance/PTO is better than anywhere. Culture, Flexibility and Colleagues who are there to support you make 84.51 a truly supportive environment.

      Cons

      Some growing pains exist, as expected with a newer company. Pay is on the lower end of the market and your success/happiness is very dependent on your manager.
