    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

    Fractal is quite an exciting place to work, especially if you are fresh out of school. My opinion on this is based on three factors, the nature of work Fractal is involved in, the company itself, and my experience with Fractal.

    Cons

    No cons as of now.

    I worked at Fractal Analytics full-time

    Pros

    - Good work only if you know visualization tools and reporting using excel - Lots of fun and gifts - Trainings are ok

    Cons

    - Less of analytics work and ML - More diplomacy by higher authorities and unnecessary poking to employers - WFH flexibility entirely depends on manager , if manager is good then WFH otherwise no WFH - Asking permission to manager for everything - Less of learning scope

    Advice to Management

    Kindly train the managers to stop playing diplomacy and threaten employees. They need to be open minded, have ability to deal with client , not just nodding head with client and to learn new methods to be progressive

    Work Life Balance Culture Timing Work from home Good IT administrator

    Cons

    Rusted mindset and egoistic Middle Management. Your skills and good thinking capability doesn't matter if you've hurt the ego of your manager and also if your manager doesn't understand the work he/she will keep pleasing toxic clients.

    Pros

    • Work from home • Flexible working culture in India • Decent compensation • Company does value loyalty and tenure

    Cons

    • Somewhere Fractal lost the balance of being profitable and maintaining “People Principles”. Very much focused on margins and revenue now. I do not see anything wrong with it, the sole purpose of a company is to give RoI to stakeholders; but now it is like the any other company which they earlier did not intend to and had a lot of focus on the culture. • Different culture for lateral hires and home-grown talent: A lot of people wrote about too much power in the hands of people who had joined the company in the forming years. Nothing wrong with that, most start-ups if they grow well do reward their founding team members with faster growth. Though in Fractal, it is impacting the company negatively by these folks not being groomed to handle roles at senior leadership level and being dependent on others a lot. Also, this has been demotivating lateral hires who have seen best practices in other companies but are side-lined by the home-grown talent. • Top heavy structure: Fractal promoted people sooner in the earlier years which has led to a lot of mass in the Grade 5 and 6 level. While they do maintain the experience criteria while hiring laterally but internally the promotions are viewed as means of rewarding good work and not evaluating preparedness for the role. This has led to people in mid-management and still do not have the maturity or experience in handling client conversations or driving programs or strategy • No career planning: With the new focus on billing, margins, revenue etc. managers stopped being mentors and are merely focusing on how they can get billed people for their projects. No one has imbibed the thinking of ‘Human Capital’ than ‘Human resources’. They do not check on your career focus, vision or have time to invest in people - this has led to blurred job descriptions and specially so in the US and EU. • Lack of stability: owing to the nature of projects onsite employees are expected to move for short term projects on an urgent basis. The company does not provide travel support if the project is more than 3 months in duration. Employees with families are finding it difficult to sustain in this environment.
