    Hike is one of the Best Startup company!

    Current Employee - QA Engineer (Hike) in Gurgaon, Haryana
    Current Employee - QA Engineer (Hike) in Gurgaon, Haryana

    I have been working at Bharti SoftBank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    1) Learning opportunities are always considered to be immense in a Startup and HIKE keeps up with this expectation.

    2) Flexible timings with well defined roles for individuals in the team. The team works as a one unit and you are free to ask anyone for help and i must say, you'll be genuinely answered.

    3) Leadership for the team is in great hands, with a great open culture. You can always share any issues you have and believe me, you will be given full attention on that accordingly.

    4) Free Lunch and Mac is well known about Hike.

    5) Work from home option is great and defines itself in this company.

    6) Regular programming classes amongst the team members, helping every individual to grow their knowledge-base.

    7) The QA team is very well divided for areas to be covered and is well structured.

    8) Regular meetings, which are more like an open discussion about your work and what you want to do and how to go about that!

    9) The whole hike team is great and its a great friendly environment. Open- culture where you are not bound to walls.

    Cons

    I have seen some people writing here in reviews about establishing Core values, but in a start-up things like these will and should take some time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the pace with which WE are growing and integrating new features in OUR product.

    Cons

    Sometimes due to strict deadlines and frequent releases, do feel overloaded with work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sometimes due to the strict deadlines, workload increases.
    The management needs to work on the deadlines, so that the employees do not feel overloaded with work.
    Also please reach out to people more often.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you are talking about high quality people then it comes high quality engineers. There are few persons in team who are passionate to their work and they should be paid accordingly. Hire 1 better guy over 2 good guy. A LOT OF improvements need to be done in QA.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Bharti SoftBank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Salary Timing is only positive factor

    Cons

    No respect for Employee working in bsb portal.

    Management only take care about manager's problem, they don't take care about employees problems

    No professionalism

    Discipline and rules are only for biased persons and yes sir attitude tytpe persons

    Dirty politics of managers

    No value of our suggestions (even they decline our suggestions without explain any reason - "BOSS is always Right" policy, so employee can't ask why)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change the Manager instead of changing employees ethics and morals

    Family Oriented Suvidha, worst culture and nonprofessionals

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Bharti SoftBank full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Food and nothing else I can think.

    Cons

    There are lots of challenges to work here :

    You have to be mentally very strong to accept day to day challenge and think about your decision to work here.
    I am not sure about Hike,Games and Hopper but this feedback for BSB Portal.

    Working here like a hell
    There are no career growth
    There are no personal growth
    There are no learning opportunities

    i can't even think one positive or motivative think so I can work here.

    Why it is family oriented because you will get only good increment of your salary in appraisal for below reasons :

    1. If you are good friend of manager (only one manager here for every person)
    2. If you worked with manager in former organization
    3. If you have attitude like "yes sir yes sir" then you can also get good increment
    4. If you married then you will also get good increment
    5. If you married and have children then you will get better increment

    BUT IF YOU ARE BACHELOR THEN NO MATTER HOW MUCH PASSION AND ABILITY YOU HAVE AND HOW MUCH WORK YOU HAVE DONE FOR ORGANIZATION, you will get only standard 5 % increment of salary.

    This sounds to be funny but its true and happening in this organization.

    I will never recommend anyone to go for this organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some people are good in management but some are ruining the environment so for those who are ruining the environment, Don't treat employee as a labour and don't try to shout with your position. Remember employee has a option to leave the organization. This was my worst organization to work with and my worst experience ever.

    Cons

    Feedback for bsb portal

    1. No employee training policy, one is supposed to figure out on their own and re invent the wheel in terms of understanding the role, company vision, goals and individual contribution areas.

    2. The company projects itself as centered around "innovation" which means Expert feedback is not even considered by the project managers and the decision over product is based on Project Manager's whims and fancies overlooking every reasoning resulting in substandard final product which is not even close to competitors. The experts in the employee base who handle the business do not want to use the company product and instead rely on competitive products and the management cant see through this.

    3. Portal office has the worst leadership as well as employee relation. Does not seem to even want to cooperate with regarding smallest of issues to issues in daily work environment.

    4. People leaving the company in bulk is a common trend especially from the Portal office. There have been many instances from ex employees as to how their annual bonuses were compromised with after dropping a resignation even when they were eligible.

    5. Poor work ethics, there is no transparency in terms of how policies like Work From Home, working hour etc applies. 8:30 to 6 and 12:00 to 6 are some extremes of differences people observe . So work hours as well as work duration seems to depend on how well the relationships (read as regular buttering up) are maintained. Project Manager will not give feedback on time and then complain to Senior Leadership about colleagues about failure to deliver. Also, they sometimes do not shy away from making personal comments about one's personal space.

    6. The products are a cheap replica of the competitors who have already gone a step ahead and made radical innovations. Features after features request are build on paper which never see the light of the day. Instead some Stone Age version of "Hackathon" produces overnight ideas which are supposed to be incorporated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Hire leaders with people skills and not just the stamps from IIM, IIT or US universities.
    2. Transparency in terms of employee policies
    3. Work ethics
    4. Make sure that if you hire people in dedicated roles, you hear them.
