I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time

Pros

Direct interaction with clients
Good mix of MBAs, Engineers, Economists and Statisticians
Innovations and initiatives are encouraged
You get an overview of different domains apart from the one you're working on

Cons

With explosive growth, Fractal, which once used to be an exclusive club, seems to be diluting the quality of employees
Fractal needs to seriously consider revamping the Human Resources and Information Technology divisions to deliver against the growth phase they are currently going through
Fractal middle-layer management does not seem competent enough to handle large teams
Project allocation is arbitrary which results in a massive loss of intellectual potential
FTE model in some teams restricts intellectual growth since the learning curve becomes flat in a matter of months, and movement across projects/teams is difficult
Fractal accepts a great amount of reporting work resulting a greater dissatisfaction
You will not be satisfied here if you are looking to do real analytics
Most work here is 70% data processing, 20% reporting and 10% domain knowledge
Payscale is abyssmal

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's time for Fractal to move from Analytics to Business Consulting. Fractal should focus on building products instead of selling services. Fractal needs to increase it's payscale significantly(by atleast 50%) if they want to hire quality people else be contended with mediocre employees

    Pros

    Fractal has a fantastic work environment. People are encouraged to ask questions and to push the envelope further. It has flexible working hours and facility to work from home. Managers are mentors which is a great plus for anyone. The quality of work is exceptional ranging from heavy data analytics applications to making world class presentations.

    Cons

    The food arrangements can be improved. Facilities for late night drop can be improved (especially for girls).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Considering the rate at which Fractal is growing please ramp up the infrastructure. The HR policies could be more transparent too.
