    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Been here a few years and have enjoyed the most of the time since I have been here. There has been plenty of growth and there seems to be an upward climb with recruitment. This is the first place I have worked where you have what they call "People Principles". I think this is a good motto to have as long as people do not take advantage of it and it seems as if the employees really seem to like this about Fractal.

    Cons

    What is most frustrating is the salary base and lack of meeting deadlines. It is most frustrating when you may be asked for something; especially when the impression it is urgent, but then only realize after fulfilling this request it not utilized as quickly as it had appeared. Decision making takes way to long or maybe that there are to many opinions that need to be considered before a decision can be made. There are way too many surveys as we are so inundated there is no time for so many surveys. Also many of these survey do not apply to administration staff and will not let you get around those questions unless they are all answered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Preparation and compare salaries for the marketed area in order to keep talent.

    Pros

    The flexibility of the organization is refreshing as many companies are not and the genuine caring of the staff and employer of their employees. This is a young company so they are eager and hungry to learn, be productive that results in being successful.

    Cons

    Because of my role and having to deal with many who are in India it sometimes makes it a challenge to get this done as quickly as you like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs consistency across the board in respects to administration and the need to be more communicative in order to get things done in a timely fashion. Although there is a time difference, but if your able to get all your question/request answered with less back and forth would be helpful

    Pros

    Putting huge efforts to grow business
    Investing in people and IP
    Very people friendly environment
    Liberty to chart your own career path

    Cons

    I asked someone leaving Fractal recently the reason and answer was 'Culture Fit' !! To elaborate his/her response..."Due to very friendly culture, people socialize a lot at work place and across levels. This places pressure on others to follow them, else miss out of the group. There is a thin line between friendly and personal relationship at work. This can also impact events such as promotion. I want to work to office only for work, and nothing else! "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Though we want to focus on people friendly culture, we should have a space for people who want to come to office only for Work !

    2) We should have a growth targets and achieve them in any case. If we are not able to grow by our own, then buy other businesses.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Encourages to make you think out of the box. A non-hierarchy system serves its purpose here. Flexible timings make you feel accountable for your work and gives a sense of ownership. A really good place work in the nascent phase of your career. Our CEO is true to his word and his love for his work is infectious.

    Cons

    Really sloppy HR department. My friends have thought twice of applying here ONLY because of the torrid time the HR department gives to them in terms of reverting back with results, scheduling interviews etc. Also, I will hold the HR department responsible for deception regarding my salary during my interview process. In spite of all this, I have continued to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When we are talking about employees with more than 2 years of work experience, please reduce the discrepancy in the salaries of employees from IIT's Vs Non-IIT's. Doesn't make sense to differentiate them on the basis of their undergraduate college even after they have given close to 24 months to your company. It is nothing but an interesting footnote now. I being from a non IIT have a salary which is almost half the salary of an IITian who is from the same batch as me.This will only lead to attrition.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have joined Fractal 4 of months back and it might be little too early to write an overall review. But I would definitely like to share my experience of past 4 months.
    Fractal is a company with great work culture. I have around 5+ years of experience and I have not seen such an amazing culture anywhere. People principle allows you to choose domain of your interest and if you are capable enough, nobody stops you to be a free run. How many companies allow you to choose your own boss? Fractal is one among those very few. If you have talent, nobody can stop you from growing. This company has a great pool of talent and the best part is everyone here is so young which completely matches your frequency.
    Work from home, no leaves bucket (sick, casual, earned), you can consume more leaves than allocated without any loss of pay, pays higher than industry, no particular login or logout time, no fixed hours needed in office, from morning breakfast to lunch to evening snacks everything is complimentary. WOW!! Totally helps in balancing your personal and professional life.
    It is true that no company is perfect and Fractal is no exception, but people makes organization perfect. This is 14 year old company and still gives you feeling of a new start up (which I think is amazing). This is the best place I have learned (by experience and observation) and would really love to be associated for long run.
    I think Fractal believes one simple thing, “you take care of client and we will take care of you”

    Cons

    Recruitment team to be more active and shall get back to candidates faster.

    - High growth prospects

    Cons

    - Incompetent middle management that keeps messing up projects & pass on the buck to the analysts

    - Ideal for engineers & people from statistical background, no real work for MBAs

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Skill mapping has to be improved. The founding fathers have done tremendous job over the years, and its really challenging to preserve the same culture as it was earlier. But they have striven hard for it and deserve a big congratulations for succeeding in making Fractal a place where its actually fun to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As the company grows, its going to be difficult to maintain the employee friendliness and dynamics.
    Would request the management to take special efforts to ensure the culture remains like this
