Very Difficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Fractal Analytics.
Interview Details – It was a swift recruitment process. I applied via employee referral.
4 rounds - 3 technical and 1 HR Round. Basic Statistical Questions asked in technical Round. Then some Case Studies relating to my Business Experience - Sales, marketing etc. They look at how deeply you interpret things, how much you go deep and how much rational thinking capability you have. Answering a simple case study doesn't mean you have answered it correctly but how many scenarios, interpretations, outside variables you can bring into that. How much you can relate It to your experience. I enjoyed the interview process as I found the interviewer very warm and it was evident that they have a strong culture fostered in their employees.
I would advice that you brush up your statistics knowledge with the practical case studies (Marketing Modeling, Sales, Price vs Demand etc) You should be able to relate analytics/statistics with Business. Apart from that you have to be confident and willing to adapt during the interview. And most important give positive vibes that your really interested to become their employee.
Interview Question – Predict Sales Volume vs Pricing vs Demand Answer Question
Negotiation Details – They have specific bands where they will place you with your experience, It doesn't matter if you have a higher package or less package. They will place you in a segment of what they pay to their current employees. Slight marginal difference might be there with respect to 50-80k negotiation. But its really tough to negotiate. You will be close to what they pay to their employees.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Fractal Analytics in February 2013.
Interview Details – 3 Rounds:
First 2 were technical, mostly resume based and basic stats concept check.
Easy to clear first two if you have full grasp on any interesting project done.
Also in the problem solving section they look for quite a out of the box thinking.
I couldnt clear the HR round as I was not prepared with the basic questions like where do you see yourself 5 years from now & long term career goals.
Interview Question – In the first round was asked couple of case studies related to the offered role sector, short ones just to check directional thought process.
In the second couple of puzzles were asked, think it aloud, if deviating the interviewer will hint to help you.
(Optional)Also be prepared to connect the dots throughout the professional career starting right away from the graduation days to have a clarity on long term career goals Answer Question

Interview Details – Three rounds: 1. 1st round with line manager mostly focused on past work experience (20 mins) 2. 2nd round with the associate director of the company (25 mins) 3. HR round (20 mins)

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Fractal Analytics in November 2011.
Interview Details – They are very professional people , They asked in and out of what I am doing. The job role which they were looking for was exactly the same i am doing currently. They asked me everything of my present role.
It consisted of one skill check and process related round of the topics which I am doing in my current role.
Then They took my one 1:1 round which was with one of the directors of the company
the there was a cross functional round which was taken by a person of some other team in Fractal and not by the person of the team for which they were considering me .
Then there was finally an HR round .
Interview Question – Can you please take me through your journey of 4 years of your experience. View Answer
Reason for Declining – They had not even discussed my salary expectations and one fine day I received a mail from HR fractal which consists of my offer letter and joining date.
When I opened the attachment i found that the salary offered to me by them is almost equal to my current salary. I reverted them by mail asking them to have a discussion on my salary and till then I never recieved any reply from them. This seems like very unprofessional and it was never expected from a company like Fractal which has a good repute in Analytics.
