    Pros

    This is an extremely creative and challenging environment. You need to read a lot, talk to a lot of people, design metrices that never existed and then advice industry leaders. If you are curious to learn and want to jump out of your bed every morning with an excitement to achieve, your multiple deadlines everyday this is the place. Over time you transform into a critical thinker and knowledge guide. The feeling is exhilarating. Knowledge cannot be bought but experienced. if you love it Beroe is the place. Culture is great - people care about quality nothing else. You have lots of time to laugh after your work. Work life balance is good if you have common sense.

    Cons

    This is not a picture perfect place.This is a live company. There are dips like anywhere else but this is reality and i havent seen any sign of dirty politics in the last 3 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I dream a day when we will be number one in the market and want to be a contributor to it. This is a place where i can do it.

    I have been working at Beroe Inc. full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1) Beroe's work culture is very chilled out with none of the senior managers pressuring you but helping you along in achieving your targets.
    2) The only company to give opportunity to improve oneself as a thought leader and category expert by providing massive networking opportunities.
    3) The work environment is highly flexible with a "as long as you deliver within the timelines" attitude helping in proper work - life balance. One can explore their own creative ways in delivering work with no fixed process to follow.
    4) Strong peer support is offered within teams with peers always lending their helping hand to enable achieve targets and deliver reports.
    5) Career Growth is guaranteed if targets are planned appropriately within the working hours itself with no extra time required

    Cons

    1) Training and Skill-set growth is very slow in Beroe as programs are only targeted for higher levels when the lower level people might need it the most. Certifications are not provided and hence there is a high need for self learning
    2) Recognition and awards may be a little biased to the senior managers decision or as an tool to retain an employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) The executive team must oversee Recognition and awards issue to make it a fair play and make sure team members hard work is recognized.
    2) More certifications and training need to be offered to all levels in the organisation
    3) New work models (advisory, consultants) can be introduced to keep up the fire as job tasks might get way to routine and result in boredom after certain level

    Frequent policy changes does not help the employees to build trust on the system and in turn the company
    Work life balance migh be an issue if we are not assetive/proactive

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If the management team really desire to help the employees, they should stick to one policy for a few years and provide as many enablers as possible to make the work more pleasant for the analysts

    White papers and Articles - nice platform to publish your business research and attend international conferences as an analyst!

    Learning opportunities - apart from on board learning, there're many courses to take up based on your designation (Beroe university)

    etc vtc - free bus/cab facilities, free snacks, townhall parties, team outings, friday events, sports olympiads, cultural clubs and what not! You wouldn't miss your college iykwim

    Cons

    Lack of onsite opportunities might be disappointing as it is only partially happening as of now

    Pros

    Beroe is a great place to work. The flexibility and freedom given to employees is exhilarating. This is one of those organizations which provides employees with ample opportunities to explore and be the best that they aspire to be. Organizational hierarchy is literally non-existent and anyone who has a brilliant idea is being given the opportunity to walk up to any execs and share the same. Employees are always encouraged to provide honest opinions and are not seen differently when they have difference of opinion on work related matters (if it is rationale).

    Anyone with the zeal and enthusiasm to produce best work is always noticed and appreciated. To sum up, Beroe is the best place for people who is self motivated and likes to free hand at work.

    Cons

    The enablers provided to analyst should be made more sturdy.
    The quarterly targets set should be re-done so that its more reasonable and achievable.
