    Aktueller Datawarehouse Developer in Berlin, Berlin

    Pros:Coffee machine,language course,free lunch sometimes,summer party,freedom in way of work,lots of potential for self paced learning ;-) Cons:I feel there is more politics and less emphasis on actual work. Too much freedom is sometimes not good for your learning, you need a structured way of work and learning
