      Growing company but company isn't valuing long term employees - High attrition rate.

      Pros

      Good working environment, good colleagues

      Cons

      Very high imbalance in terms of salary, internal folks get 5% hike and external hiring at >2X% hike which is fairly unreasonable. No long term visibility.

      Pros

      Fractal clearly stands apart from my previous employers at being transparent, fair, open, respect for employees, values and much more! The best part is vision and passion of founders which keeps me (and i believe others) motivated and charged. Strong capabilities, and evolving with high pace to cater to market, visionary leadership to shape up the future with AI, ML and advanced analytics. huge focus on clients and making their life easier and simpler , and same for employees - huge focus on making them successful and help them grow as better professional. Highly recommend working at Fractal

      Cons

      Should be more process oriented

      Great Place to work but problem with middle management

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1) Freedom to work and implement ideas 2) Good for someone who is technically very sound 3) Very open culture. You can reach out to anyone and ask a question 4) If your work is not getting hampered no one asks question on leave or WFH

      Cons

      1) Freedom to choose your project (one of the important point of Fractal's culture), is only true if you work with a easy going client. But if you are stuck with a difficult/unreasonable client client you would stuck for life. 2) If you don't ask for a promotion, you are not even considered - no defined criteria of eligibility

      Horrible Work and Work Culture

      Pros

      Nothing good about this company. Even the benefits which they provide (For Marketing Reasons) cannot be guaranteed.

      Cons

      Fractal boasts itself as Best Place to work, don't be fooled by it. They provide "free food" but won't give you time to even eat. You will have to give justification that you need 20 and not 15 min to finish your lunch. MicroManagement. You would have to fight for time given for work and justify why you need that much time to complete work. "Flexible Working Hours : "Your manager will call you at night, early morning, on weekends for work. EMs here include weekends also in project timelines. Fractal is the most horrible company I have worked for. There is no professionalism in this company. They may say "Choose your own boss", but it is nearly impossible to get release from current project. And in other projects also work is horrible. MS Excel and PowerPoint work. Manual data cleaning work. "Do not track leaves" it is nearly impossible to get leaves, because company doesn't allocate you official leaves. And you cannot even encash leaves not taken by you. Problem is service based model, they want client to to pay your salary. Employees are not on Company Payroll. The only focus of company is on your billing. They will even tag you in multiple projects and you will be working 16 hours a day and on weekends too.
