    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -A lot of flexibilty and open-ness. WFH and no micromanagement policy is great.
    -No set hierarchy, everyone is amicable and approachable. The CEO is the most inspiring person in the organisation: A perfect leader
    -Compensation is decent; a lot of growth and career opportunities.
    -A lot of learning opportunities if you are interested and willing to make the extra effort.

    Cons

    -Some of the senior level management is not that motivated or inspiring.
    -Office space is getting cramped.
    -Managers should be involved more in the ground level data handling and issue solving.
    -Analyst level employees should take more ownership of their work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Keep up the employee friendly environment we are building.
    -Try to expand offices in Gurgaon and Mumbai.
    -New employees are not well versed with people principles. Some misuse them and some disregard them.

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Great work culture: open-door policies, townhalls, Fractal-all Fridays, IJPs (Internal Job Postings)
    - CEO vision: employee focus, value creation
    - The quality of entry-level analysts

    Cons

    - Low (and degrading) quality of middle management: not only affects the performance of teams, but discourages people from long-term stints (who wants to work with such peers? Might as well leave once I've become an SA)
    - Perks and benefits: Although slightly better than the industry standards, these are not good enough to woo (and retain) top talent (specially from places like IITs, IIMs and top DU colleges Fractal recruits from)
    - Wide variation in the quality of work from one team to the other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Believe in the CEO

    High growth place, but very bad organization structure

    Current Employee - Analytics Lead in Mumbai (India)
    Current Employee - Analytics Lead in Mumbai (India)

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Growth, training, flexibility timing, open culture

    Cons

    a) Very bad organization structure - both Analysts and Leads report to the same person, creating lot of conflicts. How can a person X do an appraisal of person Y whose next level is that of person X.

    a) Analysts & Senior Analysts make most use of freedom/people principles, but large number of them are not mature enough to use them without any impact on work. Few of them spend more than 9 hours in office, but use most of that time to socialize with peers and no work. it negatively impacts project deliveries and client value creation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please fix the organization structure and ensure that junior staff develop mindset to use freedom wisely without affecting work.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    1) Exec Management - Very smart. Know their stuff; seem to complement each other very well
    2) People principles - amazing!
    3) Flat org structure - truly tries hard to have an open structure
    4) Trust & a feeling of belonging. Once a Fractalite, always a Fractalite
    5) Dissent is not discouraged, you can speak up and you will be heard; regardless of your designation

    Cons

    1) Lateral hiring - Lot of new people & quality of lateral hires over past few months does not seem uniform. This is a problem across all levels - even Apex level.
    2) Slow movement on the new location and office setups.
    3) Onsite roles are low. How do you keep top talent from leaving? Reactive H1/work visa applications.

    All of the above can be fixed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Srikanth and Pranay are amazing leaders. Exec team - please keep up the good work. Don't rest on your laurels. And don't stop executing.

    Recognize and instill passion in your teams. Be ready to take tough decisions on all fronts. The next 18 months will decide if Fractal will be an also-ran or will it be the analytics industry bellwether it hopes to be.

    Pros

    Everyday you feel like coming to work, because everyday the people around you act as agents of inspiration and motivation. The kind of expertise people have here as data scientists, statisticians, analysts, software programmers and managers is amazing. Plus the organisation is growing as rapid yet steady pace, which will translate into growth for all its employees.
    The work-life balance in this firm is amazing. You have the option to choose your project, your vertical, even your manager. There are options of flexible timings, including the work-from-home option.
    The recently implemented people principles mean that there is absolutely no micro-management, giving you space to innovate and learn however you deem fit.

    Cons

    The HR department needs to be up to the mark.
    The difference in CTC offered to joinees from Tier-1 colleges and those from Tier-2 colleges is pretty big.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More data driven technologies and learning are beneficial for the people and the firm and should be brought in.
