    Good summer internship

    Summer Intern (Former Employee) Gurgaon, Haryana

    ProsI got exposure to the real world software business as a summer intern. Ideal place to understand the career ladder for a software engineer. Good place to learn and see from the best-in-class people.

    ConsDid not get the feel of a company which i thought it would be when it started with creative spirits and the entrepreneurial hunch. Young talents should be provided with better mentorship and guidance.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere can be better ways to break the silos between the different product teams.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good atmosphere to work in, flexible timings, few restrictions and a good pay

    ProsVery flexible timings, and cool environment. People are very cooperative. Good salary, good facilities. Home drop service. Parties and trips are very frequent
