    It is a fine organisation

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    Pros- Good/smart people around
    - Nice/quality analytics work
    - quality junior staff
    - very good and transparent CEO

    Cons- Less focus on primary delivery
    - politicising any situation for own benefit
    - no personal support system

    Advice to Senior Management- there is a difference of meaning in bonus as incentive and promotions as incentive. One should not swap for each other.
    - Early promotions of junior at batch level may end up creating issue to senior staff

    Third rated top management sucks

    Senior Associate (Former Employee) New Delhi

    ProsFresher's join by mistake and leave within a year. No single real projects to work for. Anything goes in the name of analytics

    ConsHas got trapped into Man+machine and stupid jargons ...but when it comes to explaining simple analytics terminologies even the senior analytics guys screw up badly. I have seen that happening in meetings myself. There are few people who run the show here who are rejected by the market long ago and just surviving by massaging the bruised ego of ceo

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive up its not your cup of tea

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    good experience with the company

    Associate (Current Employee)

    ProsYou will enjoy this company for finding great colleagues and nice working environment. flexi work policies are blessing. Company is stuck due to poor planning, you will be working way too much (non stop for months day and night) & there would be long spells of no work. you could get mix of work, surreal as it is not known what you might be asked to do. no new projects, one has to take whatever comes in

    Conscompany has lot of talent, however management is insensitive has miserably disappointed employees. they are not able to justify for the poor state of the company. with recent change in management, employees are expecting a better health of the company

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Not Flexible timing for everyone/come to office anytime/leave office anytime/work from home without work.

    Data Analyst - II (Current Employee) Noida

    ProsHighly political with only people who socialize in a core group of employees getting promoted ahead of cycle - regardless of performance or benchmarks(Inconsistent review and promotion cycles). Lack of faith, trust and honesty for managers. If you're not in the inner circle, or buttering managers, you're growth stops and your career dies. Finally Promotion depended on whether you buttering your manager.
    Politics, Poor senior management, no appreciation, cost cutting, do have many policies but no one follow those policies, unfair appraisal system.

    ConsTotal confusion in management
    Lots of politics at senior management level unfairness in project assignments
    Directionless approach
    Deliberate delay on distribution of bonuses and appraisals to retain and mislead employees
    Very incompetent HR, HR is a complete joke, HR is nonexistent
    All talk in the air, misleading employees
    Different rules and treatment to different teams
    NO stability
    Highly disorganized management team
    Group of highly dissatisfied employees
    Only Confusing People all Around
    People get paid for doing nothing

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt's bad for morale. Damage is so severe to employee morale!
    Need to wake up and understand their responsibilities. Need to be taught how to interact with employees.
    Please be honest about the company/team policies with the employees, each team has different rule and regulation

    Your staffing process is completely unfair and you better sort out all the internal politics, the good people are being treated unfairly by the seniors.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Purely depends which team you are joining

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible Timing, Come to office anytime - Leave office anytime, Work from home. They just want work, anyhow.

    ConsPolitics, Poor senior management, no appreciation, cost cutting, do have many policies but no one follow those policies, unfair appraisal system. Employees who have joined straight from campus were sometime given work of data crunching which they do it for 6 months to 1 year keeping a hope and expectation that they will get a good quality work. No transparency is there as many employees doesn't even ave idea whats going in the firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior Management should be approachable and flexible enough to do the changes, so that the employees in junior can come and share their common problems which they facing and accordingly changes should be implement.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    ProsVery good pay
    Not a strict 9 to 5 office structure; work from home encouraged
    Attention given to the quality of work rather than the quantity of time spent in office

    ConsLesser number of office parties since i have joined

    Advice to Senior ManagementAttention to employee retention and satisfaction. Increase interaction with the new joinees, it acts as a morale boost plus you get to know what's going on at the ground level.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
