    Former Employee - Analyst in Mumbai (India)

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time (more than a 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

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

    Pros

    The value and work culture of Fractal can be realized only when we work with big and mid-size companies and come back to Fractal.

    I have spent my career with small size and big size IT/KPOs companies, The value, respect, transparency, and freedom given by Fractal is nowhere we can get from top IT/KPO/Analytics companies. Also it is not easy to implement people principle in a company which is moving from small-mid size to larger size.

    Cons

    Processes can be improved but we should understand that when the company is growing at very fast rate, it requires some time to improvise processes

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

    Pros

    I have been working with fractal for a time now. Good work culture. Growth and learning supportive. Opportunities to explore various analytics domain.

    Cons

    Managers and ADs are poor. They do not contribute to the deliveries, do not add any technical value to the team. At the same time some managers( which i have experienced) are very unprofessional, they treat a fresher like no respect at all. They give you work like to make ppts, do google search rather than actual analytics. They shout at you( literally) if you ask for more and good work. Even if you work really hard they just ignore it and give it to someone whom they like or is always supporting them even though they are wrong. They do not give you any honest feedback till the time of appraisals and promotions when they just deny that you have worked hard throughout the year. And when you try to shift to other projects they would bad mouth you so that you cannot move to other projects easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite the above problems this company can grow a lot. They are very talented people but because of these issues they are loosing them. Also u have seen that the difference between package of tier 2 and tier 1 college is so high that a person looses motivation to work seeing a person getting higher package and doing 50% less work them him. Also analyst who are hard worker are not getting what they deserve because of less transparency of who does the work from manager to AD level. Manager gives the credit to the person whom he likes.

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

    Pros

    Every one in the company is concerned about getting the engagement right for the client. Nothing comes in the way when its a client ask or task. This is what keeps everyone energized in the company. On top of this the whole culture is great with lot of freedom given to everyone. There is a genuine desire by management to make Fractal a transparent and respected company, and it shows in their actions.

    Cons

    Infrastructure is not keeping pace with growth. Need to expand office space urgently in Mumbai and Gurgaon. Need better canteen facilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work. Don't dilute the culture and don't bother to copy your competitor's practices... they are not in for the long haul.

    Crucial time ahead for Fractal Analytics - is it ready?

    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.
