Booming growth, mobile going crazy, ubiquitous reach.
And the economy's flatness is holding it back from being Bada Bada Babooming!
Working in this sphere is working in industries that are still segmenting, like an oak sapling, new branches forming all the time.
Analytics may be the latest boom, there are jobs galore for people who are even slightly competent or experienced.
But "slowing growth" has got to be true, but only because of the stellar growth rates seen in its infancy and teen years. Public companies that are young and sparking off, inevitably face a "slow down", you can't often sustain uber high growth rates, not unless you create a new industry that itself is growing (which they did). Holding a semi-matured, dominant company to a growth rate standard, might not always be a good way to judge a company, but stock pickers surely use it as a primary tool. They buy pimpled teens who are hot, and they sell 45 year adults who know how to weather storms through thick and thin. In a way, they're cougars. Hahaha!
