    Pros

    - Company in a crucial transformative stage and its exciting to be a part of this change. Industry is rapidly evolving and the leadership is focused on making sure Fractal stays relevant and develop into a leader in Analytics
    - Policy flip flops have reduced over the last 12-18 months
    - Good focus on training and development

    Cons

    Lack of experience in handling larger programs need to be addressed, I see it as the biggest risk in Fractal's transformation

    Advice to Management

    Continue building the momentum

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good clients, good work. Daily job is intellectually stimulating.

    Cons

    Overseas Human Resources department is highly under-employed. The employees don't come from a professional environment and hence don't have basic courtesies. Even folks higher up in the company, are not professional. Late for interviews, no show during interviews, set a meeting and never show up without apologies.

    Advice to Management

    If you are a consulting company, you absolutely CANNOT manage to not pay attention to people management within your own company. Hire more, train more.

    Pros

    Definitely in a good space - Data Analytics; Work with some great clients

    Cons

    0 employee loyalty. My manager was managing 15+ people. No wonder he never replied to my emails or calls or texts. Never ever acknowledged the fact that he didn't care. This of course was 2 weeks after I joined. It's a classic Indian company - Lack of ethics and professionalism.
    Have to work 12-15 hours a day with meeting at odd hours

    Advice to Management

    Care for your employees and respect them and they'll work harder for you.

    Pros

    Culture is open, usually do not take any work just in order to expand

    Cons

    Lead determines how the team culture is, so can easily deviate from how company wants to function.

    Advice to Management

    Need to be client centric but not at the cost of your own image/employees. This advice can apply to a ton of companies in general.

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time

    Pros

    Fractal has outstanding people, both in the USA and offshore locations. This talent will only grow, enabling Fractal to stay relevant and grow in the analytics space. There is a true entrepreneurial feel and excitement within the company.

    Cons

    Having originated in India, there is an offshore-centric vibe and work culture that exists at the company. Overcoming this will help Fractal grow even further.
