      Pros

      1. Senior management is reachable 2. Flexible working hours and remote/wfh option 3. CEO Shrikant is really of caring nature and empathetic with employees and regularly connects with them

      Cons

      1. Fractal has started to hire locally in US - you may have to wait forever if you wish to get onsite opportunity, you may end of working late night in India office or home taking client calls 2. Middle management is unskilled - limited technical abilities, unprofessional - come up with their own rules knowing no one can challenge them and love micromanagement - they won’t give you your own space. Lots of them are still learning on the job and does not have strong technical abilities to guide the delivery team and to mentor the juniors 3. Appraisal process is 1. flawed - performance evaluation is not objective/clear and 2. biased - usually manager's favorites or person with executive presence gets the promotion 3. Not transparent enough 4. Most of the projects are Excel /PPT/data pull/ Reporting based maintenance project. Not a place for those who really want to do something innovative in AI to advance in their career. 5. High attrition rate in recent times due to the 'typical service company' culture and limited learning opportunities. CTO himself is leaving the company! 6. Fractal was a very good company few years back but now loosing values and focusing aggressively on growth and less about the employees. 7. Fractal's actual revenue was more than the predefined yearly target in the lockdown period, in fact they acquired a small company recently - at the same time they chose not to give full increments/bonus to employees with pandemic excuse.
