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

    Pros

    1. Great learning curve. You work on multiple technologies while working on different projects. Great place to learn and start your career.
    2. Definitely pays well based on the talent. Highly competitive work place and very diverse in nature. Some of "The Best" people work her.
    3. Amazing mentorship/guidance from the senior management.
    4. Company has a vision, works on it and grows manifold YOY.
    5. Opportunities to go on-site.

    Cons

    1. Poor work-life balance. Usually have to work 60+ hours a week. But it gets better as you climb the ladders.
    2. As the company is in it's initial phase, there are a couple of things to structure while you are moving to a mature organisation.

    Advice to Management

    You guys are amazing and doing a great job! Bringing it to such a large scale is brilliant. I hope you guys will take it to next level.

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

    Pros

    First and foremost, the people and the culture. I feel at home and am comfortable around my colleagues and managers including the CXOs. I love how everyone expresses their ideas and concerns freely and how things are dealt with in a rational manner. Everyone has a say. No inhibitions!

    Second, excellent exposure to business analytics, cutting edge technologies and client executives which comes bundled with the role of a consultant. (imho, now is the time to get into data science & being a consultant means much needed exposure to many successful companies)

    Third, nice perks to make your life easy. Despite being a startup, you get a good annual salary, full benefits like 401k, insurance, travel reimbursements, conferences, offsite training and bonuses etc.

    Last but not the least, the immigration help and the legal team. My mangers, HR and lawyers worked with me meticulously on my complicated visa case and delivered!

    Cons

    All the cons that come with working as a consultant for a start up. The role is very distinct and is not for everyone.
    You need to balance technical skills with people skills, take initiative and be proactive all the time, be a jack of all trades, work with offshore teams, be very adaptable and it can get overwhelming at times.

    Advice to Management

    Try to continue being in the sweet spot where you have the culture of a startup and robust financial health. You need to monitor the career growth of all employees, check with them if they are happy with the way things are going and ensure proper recognition for their hard work. People are your biggest strength. Keep them satisfied and success will follow.

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

    Pros

    One more place for work, if you don't have any choice

    Cons

    1. I have worked with tredence, it’s nothing more than consulting company and tableau dashboard creation is not called analytics.
    2. Don't list as your client if you got just some PoC work from them or in conversation with them to attract talent.
    3. The founders do not have a great strategy, data and analytics have lot to offer and companies expect much more than building tableau dashboards, that could be the end result. What is the point of producing fancy dashboard, if it can't lead to actionable insight or when you are facing tons of data quality challenges or gaps in your integration strategy.
    The retention rate is very poor and try to attract college grads so they can make them work longer hours.

    Their interview process is illogical & unprofessional.

    Beware what you signup for especially early days of your career is very important, not all startup will give you same exposure as facebook or Amazon.

    Don't rush to start your career and realize it was a wrong move.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone wants to become big but it takes right strategy, right treatment of your employees and understanding their skills to leverage in the best direction.

    I worked at Tredence full-time

    Pros

    1) Career growth if you are in India; you have the title Manager within 2-3 years if you start as a fresher.
    2) CEO has been hard working to get prospective clients and newer opportunities.
    3) Perks, Fun you have if you work in india. If you are a consultant, 1-2 days of fun in entire year.
    4) If you're working in India, no strict timings to arrive at office for people

    Cons

    1) Mu sigma culture; Management keeps saying they are different from the competitor but they follow the same culture. This includes micro-management, too aggressive and not being constructive in resolving conflicts. India team thinks escalation is the only solution that works to resolve problems with client, associates.
    2) Overpromise clients with resources, expertise and timings. Later blame the consultants for not handling it well.
    3) India team starts their day in afternoon and end it overnight blaming the associates for higher work overload.
    4) Nepotistic to ex-Mu Sigma employees
    5) HRs sit in India and have no idea on US policies, consultants working in US and their locations.

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

    Pros

    Motivated co-workers, right attitude towards employees from the senior leadership and everyone has a genuine concern to make clients successful.
    For me personally it is being able to put multiple hats of responsibilities, having the true sense of building a company and at an overall level, the company ensures I am growing as I make the company grow.

    Cons

    None as of now.
    For people planning to join Tredence, this is a start up company and hence there will always be change and improvements to fix minor flaws in the system

    Advice to Management

    As the company grows do not let go off the core principles of ensuring both customer and employee satisfaction. It is a tough balance but we should not sacrifice one for the other.

    Pros

    Free Food and fruits, on time salary

    Cons

    Not a transparent environment! HR will not know the exact reason why an employee left coz manager would have tweaked it as per his requirement to save his butt. HR will think that the employee absconded, but the truth will be different.

    Advice to Management

    Please let the employee know about all your changes in policies. Do not keep the changes in you and implement it when the employee leaves. HR TEAM - please make sure you know the exact reason for an employee to quit. Do not judge your employees, try to understand them. Hire more mature Managers in HR team!

    Pros

    If you are starting or are in your early phase of career, I would definitely recommend Tredence. The company and its employees are young. Work is challenging most of the time because you are expected to solve a lot of different problems for your respective clients as well as for Tredence(lot of org initiatives happening) in a very rapid manner.

    Cons

    Work - life balance needs to improve. Some hard rules regarding this must be implemented. Employees are also responsible for not maintaining work-life balance

    Advice to Management

    More one on one conversations need to happen
