    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Mumbai

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very employee friendly policies, culture and support staff. Cantene free food has been consistently amazing. Good work life balance. Company spends a lot on gifts/outings. I have seen some good projects. Nice client relationships and market rapport maintained.

    Cons

    Career progression not very clear, examples of loyal employees with stagnant career demotivates from planning a longterm career here. Rewards and recognitions are less meaningful as it is sometimes given in rotation. Accounts are very different, people in different accounts get different level of opportunities.

    Advice to Management

    Individual career progression should be relooked.

    Best work Culture, Good Work life balance, Lot of opportunities to grow. Big domain of clients problem to work on lots of learning.

    Cons

    I was fortunate to work on good projects there. but some of the projects are just reporting work with very limited growth opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    Fractal was hiring really great minds earlier but nowadays as company is growing its hiring standers are not the same. Please don't drop your hiring stand.

    Pros

    There are high potential projects but only a few. You should be lucky enough.

    Cons

    Middle management asks you to stay in the same project even though you are not liking it. Highly client-oriented, which is not good all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Please as your employee's opinion also before assigning into projects.

    Pros

    Get to work with the brightest minds

    Cons

    %50-%50 capacity allocation can be a burden. most times as there is always overlap in the time one commits to a project, especially while working on two projects can be time consuming. But this does help in improving the project management skills indirectly in some manner.

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1.

    Cons

    1. Somewhat old laptops - although last I heard was there were upgrade plans 2. Being in a client facing role sometimes has its own problems - like tight deadlines, occasional overkill on deliverable quality/compliance - this causes a work life imbalance sometimes, but this is not a fault of Fractal, rather the nature of industry I believe. In fact, I feel Fractal manages its employees much better than any other analytics...

    Advice to Management

    1. Increase salaries of consultants/analysts/data scientists and their corresponding senior roles. 2. Middle management should be more cognizant towards not over-committing and employee work life balance 3. Put more focus on R&D (Folks from AIML should not be put on client facing roles permanently, occasional is fine), get more patents and publications - this will increase the brand value and brand respect.
