    Pros

    - Smart people can have a great work life balance, flexi timings and leave plans - Dedicated time for thought leadership related activities enables promoting analyst's name in the industry along with Beroe's (If people don't realise this they are incapable). - Freedom to innovate, be creative and good support from middle management for project execution and any work related problems.

    Cons

    - Senior management only cares about the employees/teams who have been in Beroe longer and are biased towards them for all awards, rewards, recognition and promotion.

    Advice to Management

    - Senior management and the CEO himself must stop being biased only to old employees and appreciate and recognise the new ones if they ever want to control the attrition rate and retain talent.

    Pros

    Good interpersonal relations. Salaries are in keeping with one of the good companies in India. Most important is that you share your knowledge, and learn a lot at the same time. So even if you leave, you have earned a lot of professional experience

    Cons

    You must have very good knowledge of the subject you are advising on.

    Pros

    Excellent working atmosphere, with very young and energetic employees. Challenges are part of any task that you take up, but at Beroe you are never alone to address any of these challenges. Help and support is always provided for those who seek it. The open door policy maintained by the top management makes you wonder about the hierarchy in the company. An analyst can always walk up to the VP or even the CEO, and have an intellectual chat about not only work, or career, but anything under the sun. Positive competition is the greatest boon at Beroe, as it ensures perfection in the reports executed, at the same time enables every analyst a good learning opportunity. Regular client calls and client interactions puts the analyst on a platform, which can be utilized to showcase your capabilities to the global crowd. Cross domain reports requires an analyst to work along with many other categories. This is helpful to understand how the procurement world works from different fronts, and not just limit yourself to your own categories. It is very useful to understand the logic of how your skills can be transcribed into a new category. Beroe's project selection provides a pivotal role in enabling analysts discover new skills and cross domain knowledge (More knowledge is always helpful) PRCs and CRCs are never a curse to an analyst. They are tried and tested enablers that help you only improve your reports and can never hinder the process of learning. Overall, Beroe is a perfect place to learn and to carve your career.

    Cons

    If you are the person who sees the "glass half empty", then - absence of work-life balance, low compensation, mindless management, etc are only the start of your complaints. If you are the person who sees the "glass half full", then - Beroe is a growing organization, and is no longer a start-up. Beroe's aggressive approach is the path that will lead to greater success. And analysts will be the most benefited when that happens. Individuals can never be satisfied in an organization. There will be let downs at some point, be it an analyst or the VP. So all the bad reviewers about Beroe, stop whining and look at the bigger picture. Be selfish at your work place. Think about your personal glory, and Beroe will never put a stop to it. As you grow, Beroe grows along with you. If you have failed to achieve success, there's something wrong with you and not the company.

    Advice to Management

    Whatever you're doing, you're doing it right! Never stop!
