    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

    Pros

    Ability to execute on most opportunities and to develop propositions for most sectors. They have a can do attitude when it comes to new challenges.

    Cons

    The management team are very well connected at the hip and therefore difficult to get on at the very senior levels unless you have been brought in as a colleague / friend. They do not adhere to their promises when it comes to pay.

    Advice to Management

    listen to your employees and be open. do not make promises that can not be kept eg. bonuses. Its not all about the number of employees you have that shows your success.

    Pros

    CEO is a great speaker and has a great vision

    Lower management and analyst teams are motivated and collaborative

    Cons

    HR is inconsistent in performance reviews, metrics, and incentive structure.

    Necessary to be aggressive in order to get support from the company (reimbursement, travel funds, project resources)

    Sales team can promise the world to clients and then leave the execution to an unprepared team

    Upper management have some of the smartest, articulate people I have met in the analytic industry. Also, I've never experience such a company with an positive emphasis on family and individuals. A birthday or anniversary will NEVER go unnoticed.

    Sometimes there can be problems with IT data flow.

    Advice to Management

    You are phenomenal. Keep doing what you are doing, please.
