    Pros

    1. They work on developing the skill set of employees through onboarding training and with on the job 1:1s with manager 2. The peer group is very smart 3. The company is growing and has moved into a much bigger new office. Therefore, also gives many opportunities for employees to grow 4. Management acts on some feedback given by employees periodically 5. Fun place to work. Ethical culture of the organization 6. Management is approachable and the director & COO hang out with all employees 7. If you are good (and get an approved visa), you get onsite opportunities in US, which helps with learning curve for employees 8. Compensation for associate manager onwards is highly competitive and better than most companies in the industry 9. They believe in meritocracy

    Cons

    1. It is consulting industry, so there are long hours at times. Work-life balance goes for a toss 2. Company needs to hire more managers. It is severely understaffed at the middle layers. Some managers are leaving for personal reasons, but no replacements are being found for them

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Indus Insights full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. The top tier management is great at telling stories, you can always learn from that. They have explanation for every wrong they do 2. Great peer group but then employees make that group 3. Good learning curve - Try to find out startups which is running for more than 9 years and have bad learning curve. If you work sincerely you get good learning curve wherever you are

    Cons

    This is not a complete list but I have tried to touch some aspects: 1. They might recruit hugely and then fire employees within 1-3 months of allocating the projects without proper notice period. Not sure how they judge freshers in such a short span of time and play with their career at start itself 2. Lack of concern for the employees - It can happen even if you have worked for more than 3 years sincerely, it can happen even if you are recovering from some critical condition physically and mentally 3. Negativity among employees - you might always think of the correct time to exit from the organisation 4. Work life balance - Well we should not talk of that because clients are important not the employees. They can always hire a lot in their IIT campus tour 5. No PFs, no yearly hikes, no proper leave policy etc 6. BEWARE of the good reviews The only reason for me to write this review is the concern for the people who are going to join the organisation in near future, especially the freshers. I wont say what you should do versus not - just be wise before taking decisions. Try to contact some relevant people who are less diplomatic. Do you know how many people continue working in the organisation for longer?

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

    Pros

    1. Tremendous exposure and responsibility handed out to you at a very early stage of your stint (leading calls with clients and presenting your own work, visiting client offices, leading non-work related initiatives in the office) 2. Steep learning curve that forces you to think and develop the ability to form an analytical framework to any business problem (may not be comfortable for everyone at the start) 3. Highly motivated peer group

    Cons

    1. Occasional very long working hours (as is the norm with any kind of management consulting firm) that the management is now very actively trying to correct in the form of Work Life Balance (WLB) initiatives.

    The learning curve is phenomenal. People over here are really smart and provide you enough exposure to managing the client's engagement. This organization trains you to work in such a way that going forward, work at any other organization would seem much easier.

    Cons

    There are no employee perks. It's just the money you get.
