Young and hardworking peer group keeps you motivated 4. Fun events and sports leagues (football, cricket, etc.) round the year, quarterly company dinners, wall of fame and awards for individual and team efforts

    Cons

    1. Joining pay is slightly lower. However, performance gets rewarded with huge hikes of 30 to 40% (if you get promoted) 2. Work life balance could be slightly impacted

    Pros

    The company is in Hyderabad Few mention 'peer group'. Only partly true because what good is a good peer group when everyone in the group is psyched out (in a bad way) JK. End

    Cons

    Amazing Management/CEO (that is all the management that counts) - This place successfully managed to make product out of people. You literally exchange your time for money. Not your skills. Great learning curve - As they keep selling, is the most stupidest idea ever. Following are the things you do on any given day: Make lame reports using advanced tools like Excel Communicate most mundane things, though not... needed, to a client at the most odd hours. Just so he knows you are burning oil Thoroughly brainstorming on which idea offends your manager's sensibilities (if any) the least Above all, pretend or actually feel (depending on your IQ) like you are doing some serious crazy analytics which help the client Skilled and talented SLT - Everyone is on the top of their game. Every senior professional knows exactly what to do - day in, day out for an year ahead. They just want you to learn the same. In their footsteps. Just do not ask them what a time-series is. Great work life balance - All work for Jack on all weekdays and all play (not for poor Jack) on weekends. The credit as the management attributes is to the efficiency. FYI: Efficiency is something, or the one thing that trickles top down in an organization Rewarding compensation and benefits - The compensations in the company can bring the industry average down like they are nothing Awesome office culture - Forgot your schooldays and your principal? No problem

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

    Pros

    I'm yet to spot any, barring the fact that they’re located in Hyderabad which is the only solace for the peanuts they pay you. If you’re chain smoker or a binge drinker, you’ve got plenty to smile about!

    Cons

    1. Nature of work: The work has the potential to infuriate even the calmest of Buddhas in a month's time (or even less). It is unbearably monotonous and utterly poor both in terms of quality and learning. The learning curve falls flat in less than a week’s time. Imagine sending presentations containing 200 slides to the client (you create them manually, btw!). One can assume that the client would direct the... presentation to where it rightly belongs - the trash bin (and so goes your work). One cannot help but wonder why they wouldn’t lose their job to automation in the near future. Most employees have simply surrendered to the demands of the system, and are machines churning out volumes of the same thing day in and out. If you’re looking for an organization that totally murders your thought process, no better place than this. 2. Managerial team: This is possibly the worst managerial team you're going to find on Planet Earth (the senior managers in particular - some of them don't understand Regression, and yet have this bossy “I know it all” attitude). No one including the COO has any real technical knowledge. The managerial team is an epitome of incompetence. Your opinion is the last thing that matters to them. While they direct operations in an autocratic manner, the “team as a whole” is to take responsibility in case anything goes wrong. It's a place full of people with "half knowledge", who resort to high end words like "complex problem solving" while all that's being done is grand scale calculations. All they're good at is camouflaging and sugarcoating a highly substandard piece of work (which the clients eventually figure out or are ignorant, as they get services at a throw away price). The COO is a matter of shame for the Wharton community. The CEO alone is a stand out guy in the entire company. He is a really knowledgeable guy (with a stellar profile to his name), but with knowledge and intellect comes that tyrannical nature. 3. Pay: This Company is the market leader as far as the worst paying companies are concerned. They pay way below the market average. And here comes the worst part - the variable part of the pay is variable not just in the quantum agreed upon, but also in the time of disbursal. They could announce overnight that they intend to pay your variable component of the salary for FY 2019 when you attain 60 years of age, and you have to stay put. Such desperation to contain attrition! 4. Work life balance: Such a thing doesn't exist in this company. If you've signed up for this company, it only means that you've accepted to devote your blood, life and soul to this company. They could potentially use 26 hours of your day! You’ve got to figure out where you’d get those extra 2 hours from! It's a real shame that they pay so little for the amount of work they get done. You're a mere passing cloud for the company that intends to make a fortune by sucking the blood and life out of it’s employees. This is neoslavery, to put it in plain terms. 5. Promotions: This is the funniest part of the story. They have appraisals twice an year, and promotions are totally predetermined. People who enjoy a rapport with the CEO are set to gain. They claim to be a flat organization (of about 100 people and 6 levels of hierarchy!!). Their only way to retain talent is by promoting people frequently to positions where nothing except the pay changes. You'd still be doing the exact same "complex" work. 6. Scope for growth: This experience could very well work against you in the future (if you happen to include it in your CV – it happened in my case), particularly because you're most likely from an IIT/NIT/BITS. This is work that a 10th grade kid would be ashamed of doing.

    Advice to Management

    1. VALUE PEOPLE'S TIME! You’re grossly abusing it! Employees are not dogs at your disposal! Acknowledge the difference between an inanimate object and a human resource! 2. Present day companies are evaluated on three parameters: Nature of work, Pay and Work Life Balance. Your company conveniently hits the rock bottom on all three fronts. While it's practically impossible to bring about a paradigm shift on all of... them, try working on at least one! Or stay content with the kind of attrition you have! 3. Conduct a job satisfaction survey and publish the results amongst the employees. That would answer a lot of unasked questions, and most likely – the attitude of a few senior managers who believe that “all is overwhelmingly well”. 4. Pay employees overtime if you refute the absence of work life balance. Stop playing the “inefficiency” card. The so called inefficiency trickles down right from the senior managers themselves – set your house in order before pointing fingers.

    I worked at Meritus Intelytics full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    1. You learn the basics fast. 2. Good peer group

    Cons

    1. Bad management: Incompetent senior management shows preferential treatments. 2. There is a culture of fear. You should literally be afraid of the CEO. You won't have enough freedom to develop yourself. 3. The senior management is rude, bossy and has very little MnC exp. They are some of the worst managers I have ever seen.

    Advice to Management

    Please treat your employees as humans and not resources.

    Pros

    1. Good office parties 2. Good peers to work with

    Cons

    1. Favourism- You must be in the good books of CEO else it doesn't even matter if you are in the company or not. 2. Everything Driven by CEO- All the decisions , no matter how small , are taken by CEO and managers have a very small say (if any) in the decision making. 3. Pay scale- In industry comparison, they pay pennies. 4.Working hours- In general, they have long working hours (~12 hours) and you will not be... given any due credit for it. Moreover, they will try to tag it as your "inefficiency". 5.Performance review cycle- At the time of promotion and pay hike, they will try to justify the random (which is unfair to certain employees) hikes by calling it " Art and Science".

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

    Pros

    - You get to learn basic analytics tools like Excel, Power-Pivot, SQL etc. - Frequent team-outings and lunches.

    Cons

    - As mentioned in one of the reviews below, there is clear groupism and favoritism. They prefer and promote local people and people within the inner circle of Senior Managers. - Most of the managers are incapable of handling the project themselves. They are dependent on CEO for everything. - Most of the work involves Excel based reporting, which very soon becomes monotonous - Working hours are very high (~ 12... hours a day). - Pay is very less which is not justified by industry standard

    Pros

    The learning curve will be initially high but will flatten out soon. Smart peers to work with.

    Cons

    Most of the projects have excel reporting work which is monotonous and hectic at times. No work life balance. If you want promotion, get ready to work for 12 hours a day. Management claim to have a meritocratic culture but all they want is to get more work done from you while paying you peanuts. The company has close to 100 employees but there is no proper company policy about compensation, leave, etc. The... entire show is run on the whims of the founder CEO.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating employs like humans instead of bonded labor. You cannot become a company like "McKinsey" without interesting work and paying pennies.
