    I have been working at Absolutdata full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Some new age research and analytics to work on
    - ownership of projects from early on in career
    - open floor policy and helpful colleagues
    - opportunities (only if you have the drive to catch and reap them)

    Cons

    - Very lethargic middle management, focuses only on day to day management instead of working towards long term vision
    - Very little clarity on operational strategy
    - Tends to work as a project management team rather than solution builders
    - very little coordination between sales and operation teams (no incentive to build and communicate it)

    Advice to Management

    - Communicate your vision as often and with more clarity than now

    Senior Manager/Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Absolutdata.

    Interview

    Pretty un-organised. They were not sure for what profile they would like to interview me. They wont listen to your ambitions and self evaluation. At every call they offered me a different profile. Most funny part was HR round first and then followed by technical round. I declined their offer because they seem affected by pre-conceived notion which is surely a bottleneck in being creative and getting independence in work. The body language of the interviewer was someone who is not interested in talking to you.

    Interview Questions

    • exactly nothing. Not profile related questions but general talk without any direction.   Answer Question
