One of the best startups to work with in India!

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I have been working at Bharti SoftBank full-time for more than a year

Pros* Extremely passionate, talented team.
* Good pay.
* Great office, all the facilities you could ask for (free lunch, snacks, beverages, gym, 24" monitors).
* Flexible timings, work from home options.
* Working on exciting new products.

Cons* Growth/appraisal is slow.
* Strong engineering talent, but poor design talent.
* The company is still struggling to establish 'core values', something that does not change with time. Values seem to fluctuate with every product cycle.

Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish your core values. Your users always come first. Don't let growth come at the expense of your product's integrity and brand.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Great experience

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Bharti SoftBank full-time

ProsExtremely challenging and interesting work , good opportunities. Lots of responsibilities.
Freedom of work . Flat structure etc etc.

ConsThere are few areas where management lacks inexperience , which could be the case for any startup. Management make some adhoc decisions, again could happen in any startup.
Some undeserving and non performers are holding high positions , not necessarily in tech roles, which is hampering the performance of the company and is leading to demoralization of other employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease correct the above stated cons and take them seriously. Undeserving people should not be part of the team , even if they are friends. Otherwise , BSB rocks.

Great potential but not managed well

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Gurgaon, Haryana

I have been working at Bharti SoftBank full-time

ProsGreat office, flexi work hours(not for QA)

ConsWont pay employees well. Everyone has 10% perf bonus component as CTC and out of that it pay out only 70-80% of it. Very cunning in salary negotiations and very biased appraisals 2%(yes its right)-10%. not much scope of growth in both QA and developers.

Advice to Senior ManagementValue your employees more. a tech company is driven by engineers not by non-engineers. Avoid being influenced by 'good for nothing' and 'email about everything' guys.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
