    I have been working at Fractal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open and transparent culture. Leadership takes ownership of failures. Top management has some really brilliant people. People are courteous and polite - I've worked for companies where screaming matches were routine. Bosses would openly insult subordinates causing frustration and anxiety. I've never experienced that at Fractal. No layoffs during the pandemic.

    Cons

    The company can be a better pay master for people working in support functions. Career growth for folks in support function has not been given much attention.

    "Inconsistent promotion policies"

    2.0
    Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Mumbai
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Fractal full-time

    Pros

    Excellent standards set and push for transparency by Srikanth and Pranay

    Cons

    Many of us are struggling with unclear promotion policies for movement into Apex, but exceptions are regularly made even at CP level. The issue highlighted here is not about the individuals being promoted (everyone is great in their own rights), but rather on the policies/loopholes in policies that allow for such exceptions: 1. Individuals from Product Teams/Ops Excellence Team promoted to senior levels and then given Service roles. The competencies as well as promotion KPIs required are very different between these teams and people in services teams are constantly reminded of the required competencies to move to Apex. Unable to understand how such movement within teams can happen without being assessed on the same Service role KPIs 2. It includes a promotion from PC to CP in 12 months in products! - The window of 12 months is considered to be very short by HC even for promotions into Apex. What level of contribution warranted the promotion at such a senior level? Unsurprisingly, the announcement of this promotion was not communicated to Fractal All, as clearly there was no ground for the promotion Surely, there will be more cases like these which impact the promotion chance of people in the Service roles, given that it is already top heavy. S and P - We request you to be personally involved in promotions to Apex for some time please until there is an established process.

    I have been working at Fractal full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Exposure to a client facing role as well as potential to develop career for a fresher

    Cons

    1) Really poor middle management - Allocation of resources is a huge problem for the company. I was forced to accept a role by the staffing team and told that I'd be facing bad consequences if I did not. This has resulted in me (a Data Scientist) working on supporting/reporting projects with no learning for the past 8 months now 2) Weak Team/Project Leads - The project leads are completely spineless in terms of points of view towards analytical integrity of the projects. They agree to whatever the client's demands are without thinking about being a client partner rather prefer just being a slave 3) There has been politics even at the Consultant level regarding ownership of work/promotions
