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

    Pros

    Entrepreneurial spirit is present, even with 700+ in India
    Recruiting and development of new technical staff (in India) is amazing
    Fractal Sciences is the real deal
    Business climate for analytic services is beyond hot

    Cons

    India has scaled; US / UK has not
    US Sr manager(s) working too hard; could be more strategic
    Benefits are sub-par: 401(k) not matched, vision and dental are weak or of no benefit

    Advice to Management

    US / UK: Need to empower experienced people managers in order to reach scale. Repeated a different way... Credit the hard working ethos, but we will not scale on the backs of 1, 2 or 3 most senior, stunning as they may be. Must delegate and trust. And then sometimes you (we!) need to make that hard decision and redirect the team members who have not performed. There seems to be a remarkable inability to come to grips with the obvious and this is killing moral and team development on key accounts.
    General: If we are selling to the F100, then please examine the HR pkg of those companies and emulate. The US / UK benis are not up to snuff. Get a US / UK HR consult for review, and listen. We need to be able to pull candidates from the same pool we sell into. Recruiting is hard enough, there is a reason for the dearth of diversity in the candidate pool.

    "Confusing place to work"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    CEO is willing to do everything he can to make this company a grest place to work

    Cons

    They have hired delivery leads with limited understanding of consumer analytics and no people management skills. Such people never really had any point of view and were interested more in gossips/cricket than helping team and clients generate high quality output. 

    Promotion process is flawed to its core. People were promoted to associate directors in an extremely short period of time, only adding to the widespread suspicion that promotions are based on how hard you laugh at your manager's joke rather than objective performance achievements. 

    Srikanth wants to do the right thing but I don't believe he has the right set of middle /senior management backing him up

    Advice to Management

    You need to make sure you have right set of people leading your employees. Wrong managers either new hires or promoted prematurely would create confusion, frustation and eventually make you best folks leave.

    Unlimited days off

    Free lunch

    Cons

    - CEO needs to stop begging people to leave positive glass door ratings. Do not leave them as do not have them
    - People principles is not followed as even freshers are told need to do roles or leave
    - CEO says open and trusting culture does not show in actions or treating of employees

    I have been working at Fractal Analytics full-time

    Pros

    Srikanth and his humility, Few jovial ppl
    Had joined hearing it had good culture, still trying to find it though

    Cons

    People principle, flexibility to work is a big big facade and hoax. Senior senior management refers to it as 'people principle and all that crap'.
    I voiced my opinion and was threatened it will 'effect my growth'. No ethics, except for a handful of people. Specially US leadership is ready to fall down to extreme levels for immediate and short-sighted benefits.
    A bunch of bullies pushing anyone who differs. Don't give power to even account managers after mismanaging expectations. Unable to staff people after promising sales. Ask middle management to handle things, while they try to 'engage' with false growth promises. Old people show too much power while new ones have to establish against all obstacles. Almost threatening.
    Salary is also very low compared to others because of few decision makers.

    Hoard of new senior managers joining who are ever so loud and cannot stop boasting about themselves. Pushy, desperate to impress Srikanth.

    Advice to Management

    Broaden your vision. Srikanth has it, but a hollow leadership, too busy to micro-manage. It will get you the short term wins, but cannot take you any further.
