    Pros

    People Principles is a great concept if followed to the letter.
    A lot of trust and independence is given to the employees to chart their own career path
    Some folks are really passionate to make a difference
    Senior folks are always ready to hear your ideas
    The onus is on the employees to take ownership and bring out innovations in whatever work they are doing.

    Cons

    Compensation is below par as compared to the industry standards.I recently got promoted but got a very meagre hike which was very demotivating.
    No support for any education program.I tried to get a sponsorship for my part time Masters which would have added tremendous value to company but the answer I got was that we don't have any policy yet and we are still figuring out.So even if I want to learn and add value to the company, they don't or can't enable that for me.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing a good job but could do better.
    Compensation and growth of employees need to be looked at.

    Pros

    Been here a few years and have enjoyed the most of the time since I have been here. There has been plenty of growth and there seems to be an upward climb with recruitment. This is the first place I have worked where you have what they call "People Principles". I think this is a good motto to have as long as people do not take advantage of it and it seems as if the employees really seem to like this about Fractal.

    Cons

    What is most frustrating is the salary base and lack of meeting deadlines. It is most frustrating when you may be asked for something; especially when the impression it is urgent, but then only realize after fulfilling this request it not utilized as quickly as it had appeared. Decision making takes way to long or maybe that there are to many opinions that need to be considered before a decision can be made. There are way too many surveys as we are so inundated there is no time for so many surveys. Also many of these survey do not apply to administration staff and will not let you get around those questions unless they are all answered.

    Advice to Management

    Preparation and compare salaries for the marketed area in order to keep talent.

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

    Pros

    The flexibility of the organization is refreshing as many companies are not and the genuine caring of the staff and employer of their employees. This is a young company so they are eager and hungry to learn, be productive that results in being successful.

    Cons

    Because of my role and having to deal with many who are in India it sometimes makes it a challenge to get this done as quickly as you like.

    Advice to Management

    Needs consistency across the board in respects to administration and the need to be more communicative in order to get things done in a timely fashion. Although there is a time difference, but if your able to get all your question/request answered with less back and forth would be helpful
