How are senior leaders perceived at OYO?

Pros

Flexibility in schedule, decent pay. Time to find another job.

Cons

Absolutely no organization, systems, policies, in place. It's a complete free for all with everything. They put structure around the most bizarre things and let everything else fall to the side. After all the lay offs they said they "learned their lesson" but all evidence to the contrary. No actual changes made, just a lot of talk and fluff. The leadership who made all the poor decisions leading to layoffs and other negative impacts to the company are still in their positions with zero accountability and are continuing the pattern of irresponsibility while everyone else continues to suffer.

Advice to Management

The people currently in management need to be gone ASAP. Get international (not just Indian) leadership OUT of the US business. It is ruining the business.

What are some insights into the strategy or vision at OYO?

Pros

- in every location, there is exceptionally bright shining talents; smart, driven, friendly and supportive colleagues and leaders. - it's a unique cultural learning & bridge-building experience, once you get used to it - some of the classic start-up perks (especially being able to take on responsibilities all around)

Cons

There is no strategy or plan that lived to see the next week, thus no stability, ever. This is not "dynamic", more so it seemed erratic, clueless and nervous.. Nobody except VP and C-level management seemed to know the rationale of any decision, which became even worse after Softbank panicked and demanded profitability over night. - if you don't know people, you will not get work done. - HQ Product managers and analysts work in isolation from their stakeholders instead with and for them, resulting in unfit solutions, frustration and grief on both sides. - many technical project partners overpromise, oversell, blatantly ignore agreements and timelines, and regularly deliver half-baked work that does in no way satisfy previously discussed deliverables before disappearing into "new assignments". - constant understaffing in central support roles to most departments, absolute mismatch to ambitions and growth in the field

Advice to Management

Commit to a strategy, communicate it, follow it. Then align teams to work together and be accountable for their contribution.
