    Pros

    The new age kind of mode that it is moving to which is great to see in a primarily Indian company with international clients

    None that I can think of since they are genuinely working on everything that needed improvement

    Advice to Management

    "Business Research and Advisory"

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Aranca full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Since I worked at Aranca for a long period of time, I have observed the following:
     - Great exposure - especially in the BR team - some great client names, strategy assignments and sector focus
     - Access to Management - All team leaders and higher management were approachable and friendly
     - Employee Engagement - Offsites, annual parties, team dinners were always celebrated in spirit and there was evident camaraderie across team members and managers and seniors
     - Recognition - Highly merit oriented - work hard, perform well and you will be most likely recognised; fast track growth for a lot of employees

    Cons

    - Training: high dependence on self learning; no evolution of research approaches, methodologies as compared to industry practices. Lot of emphasis and dollars spent on unnecessary activities but not on functional experts.
     - Attrition at junior level - It was challenging to make the junior level stay considering the salaries offered

    Advice to Management

    - Invest in training; increase exposure of teams to clients and client management; increase base pay of well performing teams, rather than classifying entire department under similar salary brackets

    Complexity of certain projects. Very customized and bespoke advisory/consulting roles.

    Unequal distribution of high quality projects among team members and lack of industry specialization.

    Advice to Management

    Let employees work on the same sector that they have experience in and build on that experience.

    Pros

    Salary gets credited on time
    Office is located at good location
    Big cafeteria

    Cons

    No clear plan for the future, employees don’t know long-term goals, senior leadership fails to adequately communicate.

    Negative employee reviews, lack of focus on a true employee experience, recruiters evading your questions.

    Advice to Management

    A company is only as good as its brand promise and the trust of its employees. Without these two things, it is doomed to fail.
