I have been working at Indus Insights full-time
1. Phenomenal team: Highly motivated and sharp people. The company recruits from top colleges each year and has an extremely rigorous selection process. Delivering high quality insights to every client is imbibed in the Indus culture which means enormous amount of learning for one
2. Rapid growth: No bureaucracy or hierarchy. Performance is the the only criteria for promotions (If you perform well, you are promoted to the next level in as soon as 7-8 months)
3. Great exposure: Variety of different projects for clients across different industries. No mundane work, one gets to operate at advanced end of analytics. Plus, its not a back end job - one gets to interact with clients on a regular basis. Apart from delivery, there are internal responsibilities like training, on-boarding, recruiting etc which result in good balance
4. Rigorous training sessions: Well organised training sessions at various levels. For freshers, there is a rigorous training schedule to ensure one learns about advanced analytics, gains proficiency in tools like excel, sql, powerpoint. At managerial levels as well, there are training sessions to ensure best practices while managing/mentoring people
5. Feedback is delivered in a constructive way and taken very seriously. Compensation at all levels has been recently increased and more perks are offered after taking into account the feedback given by a lot of employees
1. Long working hours which might get too hectic at times. This is because of the nature of consulting industry. Not a place (or industry) to be at if you are looking for a relaxed 9-5 kind of job
2. Lesser perks than many consulting jobs. Travelling to client site has been rare in the past. Though, this has really picked up in last few months where even associates have got the opportunity to be at client site (US) for more than 2 months. As managers, you get to travel quiet a bit.
Do not expect regular travel
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Indus Insights (New Delhi).
The interview process consisted of 3 rounds after an aptitude test. The aptitude test had 3 sections with negative marking. First round of interviews was a guesstimate followed by case round and HR interview.
