    I worked at Fulcrum Analytics full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Friendly coworkers and senior management, excellent company culture
    2. Clients from diverse industries with challenging projects
    3. Provide with great opportunities for individuals' learning and growing, especially for juniors

    Cons

    1. Fast pace environment
    2. Maybe expects more than 40 hours/week, but doesn't usually exceed 50 hours
    Both could be good or bad, depending on one's preference and career goal, though personally I believe these aren't cons for juniors.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to treat employees well

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

    Pros

    Fulcrum provided a relaxed and casual environment. Generally, there was not a lot of stress or pressure.

    Cons

    They paid me peanuts and the company wasn't organized enough to provide for employees' professional development.

    Advice to Management

    I suspect the company has undergone many changes since I've been there for the good and the worse, so it's probably useless to give advice at this point.

    I have been working at Fulcrum Analytics full-time

    Pros

    The work is challenging, but there's lots of support from managers and your team. The work environment is great as well as the people that work here. There's lots of opportunities to get recognized for producing great work. The company sponsors after work social events every month that give employees a chance to have fun and get to know each other outside of work. Fulcrum has a very open environment where people at all levels feel comfortable talking openly to managers at all levels including the CEO. Fulcrum also has a very generous vacation policy and people are allowed to work from home when needed.

    Cons

    Client work can be very demanding and challenging. Extra hours and some weekend time is sometimes required to meet project deadlines. If you're a slacker, this isn't the place for you. You'll be asked to step up and contribute; but your good work is recognized, appreciated and rewarded.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage collaboration.


  10. "A ton of opportunity for personal growth, but they ask you to step up and deliver."

    Pros

    Fulcrum has a great collaborative culture where people work together and are committed to delivering great work. There's very little politics and managers reward employees who make an impact rather than face time and CYA experts. The work is fast paced and there's plenty of opportunities to get out of your comfort zone and develop new skills.

    Fulcrum is growing and adding clients in several industries so there's always new work and new teams being put together.

    Cons

    The work is client-driven so it can be intense when leading up to big deliverables and deadlines. Sometimes, as a smaller company there isn't as much support as people coming from big companies will be used to.

    Advice to Management

    Management should more explicitly lay out the career development path for the various positions at Fulcrum. There are many routes to advancement but it's not always clear for junior and mid-level folks what they all are or how to take advantage of them. More clarity up front would help.
