What is it like to be a data scientist?

Data scientist roles & profiles in business organization are pretty much in synch with strategy roles as data scientists play a major role in shaping the future plans & strategies of the organization. Successful data scientists can also take a business consultant role as well (depending on the situation) wherein they extensively travel to different business sites, analyse business data and prescribe prospective solutions as to how businesses can thrive in such regions.

In general, a data scientist role is not a conventional 9-to-5 role wherein the employee is expected to carry out certain ascertained or specific tasks. Rather, the role demands higher levels of curiosity and motivation from the employee to seek for opportunities of improvement, and get a project sanctioned out of it.
