    Challenging work place

    SRA (Former Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    Pros1. great growth opportunities - you can earn a promotion every quarter if you meet requirements
    2. ability to interact with clients
    3. Super exposure to industry, category and business processes
    4. Great colleagues and fun atmosphere most times. Good ideas like townhalls and sports meets need to happen more often. Original fun at Beroe is slowly disappearing
    5. Good pay master

    Cons1. Pressure, pressure pressure...in name of productivity and deliverables
    2. Not a well known brand outside procurement
    3. work life balance is absent - need to work several weekends (in non a/c office..!)
    4. communication and information exchange is a lot via rumors

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate properly, trust employees and dont make frequent changes.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to start your career after UG and fresher PG

    Research Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsHelpful people
    Least possible hierarchy
    Faster growth at lower levels
    Lots of learning
    Flexible work timings

    Pantry ;)

    ConsLocation (Chennai)
    Slow growth from L5 onwards
    Cafeteria is a disaster
    No sodexo

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing a small company, you don't have the leverage to slower employee growth and yet expect them to stay. Employees have great opportunity outside thanks to the learning at Beroe. The new metrics made are in lieu of short-term benefits (aka savings).

    Bottom line: HR policies not in sync with/ in favour of either employee or organization.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its a sweat shop with no work life balance, no support structure for analysts, biased , very high attrition

    Research Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    Prostownhalls, work yourself to death ( and consider it a "learning opportunity")

    Consextremely short deadlines. expected to work 18 hours in a day. rules are not uniformly applicable. an analyst can come at 3 pm without anyone raising an issue about it, while another analyst gets fired for coming at 11 am one day.
    160 hours long MI expected to be completed in one week. analysts are not allowed to have any say regarding project feasibility, deadline etc. On the smallest of issue, employes are told to "take a call" since they have no dearth of analysts.

    Advice to Senior Managementhave uniform rules that are applicable on everyone equally. Things like project duration, feasibility, leaves, employe performance and level movements should be made transparent so that they are not so biased and irrational.

    Don't drive an employee to the point of suicide by making them work like slaves and demoralizing them all the time.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Its Fun plus good learning curve

    Senior Research Analyst (Current Employee)
    Chennai (India)

    ProsBeroe offers people to experiment with their style of work, multiple industry knowledge, but at the same time mastering your core category well with the launch of their new initiatives.
    Flexi-timings, understanding superiors are great to exchange ideas and push your self extra step. COE can be another support tool for MI team.

    ConsContinuous changing policies, multiple client requests analysts has to work on simultaneously. Analyst's work is dependent on getting data from suppliers who are not ready to share data on a long run. not many paid databases are used by the company, thus making things difficult for an analyst to gather and analyze data in a short focus.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYes, its high time Beroe must focus on giving people exposure of learning analytical tools as that is the future of advisory/consulting companies. This also improves the credibility of the analysis.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
