    I have been working at Myntra full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has tremendous talent and energy. I have been here for 3 years and highly appreciate the smart decisions the management is executing. Every man was once a boy. Every mature company was once an immature startup. The company is gradually going through this transitioning and fortunately this is the best time. Flipkart has already declared themselves as not a startup anymore. Flipkart+Myntra has to reach where amazon is today. With correct hiring decisions and employee retention, Myntra can show the world, a global, premier fashion ecommerce company.

    Cons

    Burning a lot of money in advertisements, promotions and discounts.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee retention. Even though Myntra is in a healthy stage today, it might go down in a matter of weeks. Those who built and are building the product today are the real people driving this fashion portal. Never ignore tech guys and what they bring to the company.

    Pros

    Lively N Colorful Work Environment
    Approachability of Other teams
    Flexible Timings
    Lot of scope for learning
    very friendly atmosphere , where everyone will try to help you in case of any help

    Cons

    Recently lot of Senior management hiring is going on and they are somehow desperate in filling those senior positions and ending up in filling those positions with crappy candidates(not all , some) who doesn't have any real time expertise in particular domain and simply doing bla bla ...

    It's no more a start up kind of atmosphere

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of creating lot of hierarchy , recruit engineers more

    I have been working at Myntra full-time

    Pros

    Colleagues and the work culture is amazing. The kind of interaction and mentorship you can get here is incomparable. Work hard Party harder is part of the culture. Tech talks are common and most of the time you get to chose the technology you want to work or and drive the project with.

    Cons

    Since the beginning of this financial year Myntra has been desperately hiring people in senior management with a degree in micromanagement. Some of them are quite arrogant who believe in 'My way or highway' style of managing people! Quite expectedly,the focus has been shifted from technology to filling excel sheets and running after useless numbers. It has become quite hard to reason out things with them as logic is not their forte.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to implement a 360 degree review system where engineers have a chance to rate their managers and please please take the feedbacks seriously. Don't let a handful of people convert Myntra into a service based company with bureaucracy frustrating the talent.

    I have been working at Myntra full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Myntra is just outstanding, i work/ed/ing/* :) here as associate technical architect, and i m love/ed/ing/ ;) it. The pros:

    1. Freedom of experimentation.
    2. Senior leadearship (VP/SVP/CTO/CEO/CMO) are approachable at all times.
    3. All Engg managers and Architects are very friendly and informal, ready to help you out of bounds.
    4. The tech talks (weekly) are outstanding as you learn a lot.
    5. Prototype prototype protoype your thought, and then everyone would help to adapt to the change.
    6. senior management (VP and SVPs) are strict but reasonable and cooperative, sometime they might appear strict but nothing new for a guy who have worked in any of the top 6 companies 'Crack the coding interview' fame.
    7. HR is helpful.
    8. colorful office, people around and their dressing sense gives you a feel of a true fashion company.
    9. free food, snacks and breakfast.
    10. fun parties which happens every quarter.
    11. tough interview to crack.
    12. complete ownership of deliverables, which makes deliveries outright fast.
    13. Company care about your thinking capabilities.

    Cons

    1. No annual Bonus
    2. Stocks are all on paper as no signs yet of going public anytime soon (Alibaba way on the go i guess).
    3. No cab facility.
    4. very fast paced (release to prod happens at least 3-4 times a week). [i should have put this in pros .. wink wink]

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Don't make it slow sleuth like a typical bureaucratic company .
    2. Keep the number of meetings in a day controlled nd giverned
    3. Have no meeting times introduced for enhancing productivities.
    4. Ensure that managers are coding too, because managers here can code outstandingly well ;) (not natural for lots of companies).
    5. Reduce hierarchy in reporting structure and try to make it as flat as possible.
    6. unleash all devil gods of coding, you will get features released every week.
