    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.

    Pros

    - Mostly native Indian consultants and managers, so no racism like in US white dominated firms
    - Good base in Mumbai
    - A few good people on a personal level.
    - Can speak Hindi on the job with no issues

    Cons

    - Salary is below par
    -The turnover is very high because middle managers mistreat staff
    -The data scientists and analytics consultant do not know fundamental data science
    - They use spreadsheet learnings from business school and don't know how to code
    - Human Resources is very dishonest
    - The teams cannot explain any of the statistics behind the models
    - The company has no real talent so it is switching to software products that won't sell in US market. They have no talent to compete.

    Changes to middle management are needed
