    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Fulcro Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Young & Smart crowd who is willing to take the leap and learn new things, fooled into joining this company for a stupid annual party that happens at the same location in Alibaug every year.

    This place might be good for those who are freshers or someone who needs to find a job after their internship.

    Cons

    Major issues:
    - This place is not for experienced folks or people who have experience working in MNCs or top notch companies.
    - There is no HR here, an external agency manages it for them(which is a bit manipulative), probably because they think HR is not a vital function for a company, you can figure further things out. ;)
    - Average tenure of a person is around 6-7 months, you will know this by asking people or if you joining during the annual retreat.
    - The Technological Head, who sits in Delhi has some serious ego issues, poor people management and obsolete technical knowledge, will try to screw you from start (you will not understand why??), sad part is that the CEO supports this behavior so you cant really do much about this.
    - If you are earning between 18-20L or 20-25L bracket, this company cannot afford you, although they will give you the package to fire you within a month, this way you will be left with no job for a few months as it is difficult in these tough times to land a job with the desire salary. (I am one of the lucky few who did find one :))

    Minor stupid things you will observe once you join:
    - You will be asked to generate business from day 1, no orientation whatsoever about the product they sell or the success stories they have created.
    - You will be marked a half day if you reach after 10.30 (This half day will be deducted from your leaves, so you dont get to know this in the initial few months but later when you realise you dont have any leaves left)
    - The admin clicks pictures of employees who spend time on something that is not WORK and shares it with the CEO.

    Advice to Management

    No advise, I just figured why the company is still small even after so many years and probably why you underwent a name change. Keep up what you doing and soon you ll see wonders. :P

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fulcro Consulting (New Delhi (India)) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Office is quite overwhelming, awards in conference room since 2008! And a whole wall full of them , interview process was very short, took 15 mins, initially I was told Sabyasachi , MD was going to take the interview, then mr Abhilash , VP, took interview.

    Now coming to the part where things seem quite suspecious,

    Biggest question, why all reviews posted for this company page on same day or within 1 weeks span?

    Company founded in 2018, but awards ranging from 10 yrs ago, so I decided to do some research

    Fun fact, company is 15+ yr old, was under name of IBS , ran by mr. Sabyasachi & his wife, after thier divorce, company was reformed as registered as fulcro,

    Mr Sabyasachi is IIM grad, n all the clients are more or less IIM contacts, that seem very great, nothing wrong with it, but I read anonymous reviews that's the environment being hostile in regards of job security, so I will again not comment on it!

    The recruitment agency wizz hr ran by sairose, who is an ex employee of IBS/ fulcro, and they will literally sell you how good fulcro is! And how big brands you will get etc etc,

    So my verdict, company really has good brands, so might be good to work with to get lot of exposure , and can be a stepping stone for your successful future, and if you work hard, you will be paid well, atleast what I think about it , but before you join, one must research a lot , and be smart about it
