  2. It is a wonderful blog. I am really surprised at the exhaustive list of companies you provided.

    You can add 'geomeme' to your list. It is a small US based analytics company now operating in hyderabad & US. It is started by two MIT MBA students. I was working for that company during 2006-2008.

    I am not writing this to promote that company. Just thought I can contribute something to your wonderful work.

  7. "Analytics is just a dog's job". Guys I know this a rude statement but I got similar replies from some people currently working in this sector. I am an aspiring Management consultant but due to lack of proper experience would like to start of as an analyst first. Please explain the exact nature of work.

    Is analyst just involved in conducting data analysis and submitting reports and dosent participate in andy client interaction roles ?

    Also some of them replied that these companies are just like glorified call centers where you do all the back office work and offer support services to frontline managers and consultants.

    Please calrify these issues
