    Pros

    Best Culture, Best people to work with, Good infrastructure.

    Cons

    Lack of good projects, Middle management still lacks adequate Knowledge and required skill sets. Management is more interested in what you do outside your project work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please give appraisal to the employees based on his project work and not what work has he/she done other than the project. Please upgrade the salary bands with respect to current market conditions.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working with fractal for a time now. Good work culture. Growth and learning supportive. Opportunities to explore various analytics domain.

    Cons

    Managers and ADs are poor. They do not contribute to the deliveries, do not add any technical value to the team. At the same time some managers( which i have experienced) are very unprofessional, they treat a fresher like no respect at all. They give you work like to make ppts, do google search rather than actual analytics. They shout at you( literally) if you ask for more and good work. Even if you work really hard they just ignore it and give it to someone whom they like or is always supporting them even though they are wrong. They do not give you any honest feedback till the time of appraisals and promotions when they just deny that you have worked hard throughout the year. And when you try to shift to other projects they would bad mouth you so that you cannot move to other projects easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite the above problems this company can grow a lot. They are very talented people but because of these issues they are loosing them. Also u have seen that the difference between package of tier 2 and tier 1 college is so high that a person looses motivation to work seeing a person getting higher package and doing 50% less work them him. Also analyst who are hard worker are not getting what they deserve because of less transparency of who does the work from manager to AD level. Manager gives the credit to the person whom he likes.

    2. Quality of the work is not good. All you have to do is pure reporting, not analysis.
    3. Your promotion depends on how much time you have spent in the company, not on your skills.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Shrikanth:- Only reason I am still with this Organization, You will never find such a leader in any of the organization. I hope to see 2 yr old fractal with recent changes that are coming.
    2. Sense of Ownership, when I enter the office I feel I own this company and this motivates me to continue working here.
    3. Good Work, Flexible timings, Good Training,

    Cons

    1. Batch Parity: I am one of the lucky ones here my sub-juniors from my Engineering college and my current junior from post grad college are in company, but I can say seeing them placed in the company that either I have made a wrong choice doing my PG.
    My 2 year Junior from Engg college get paid equivalent to me, he is only graduate with work ex from one of IT giants in India, HR and Senior Management have failed to established Batch Parity in this Organization.

    2. Pay Parity: Pay Parity exists in the organization at all the levels right from A1 to P4, I am with this company since Jan 2012 with No change in my designation even after getting A B+ B+ grades in my three appraisal.

    3. Managers are biased with those who joined fractal as first job and when questioned about any thing related to career growth and aspirations they dumbs.

    4. I have often seen good people leaving this organization and no efforts have been maid to retain them from the management.

    5. Appraisals, Exit Interviews, Feedback all are just off's, Mid Management, HR and Admin is making fool of a guy like Shrikanth, whom I respect from the bottom my heart.

    6. Analyst are given laptop to work while people with experience need to work on desktops, why is this? this question have been raised twice in town hall but the management is clueless.

    7. Worst HR and Admin Support, they will keep giving you a reason which keep check on your frustration level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seeing recent changes, I'm optimistic about my future here.

    Try to be more real with resources as in on who is actually capable

    Keep an eye on the middle management. Mediocrity suppresses creativity, Managers are not ready to listen to associates

    Pros

    People make the place great

    Cons

    Having managers from outside and not home grown managers dilutes Fractal values. Should look at grooming and growing people within the eco-system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please make sure that the people you hire in senior roles from outside of Fractal are a fit for Fractal values and culture

    growing company in terms of employees but scarcity of good analytics work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics

    Pros

    good in operational work...many fringe benefits to employees...flexi timings. Increments are good

    Cons

    scarcity of statistical and modelling profiles.if interested in R and SAS and modelling stuff this is not the place for you.managers are not very technically sound

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please allow and promote analysts for innovation and change projects in an year according to the interests. At an analyst level best thing you can offer is diverse learning rather than repetitive work
