    Pros

    Responsibilities are high so you will learn but don't fall for my phrase. Think about your Mental and physical health before joining

    Cons

    - Micromanagement is in their blood - 1000 HR policies for Delivery boys but none for anyone upward - Fake reviews improvement team is there for REAL - They will offer a good amount but believe me you will regret later as it's nothing compared to the MICROMANAGEMENT, MENTAL PRESSURE, 12HRS OF WORK every day (EVEN ON SUNDAYS WITH FULL EFFICIENCY), LEADERSHIP LIKE A FOOL, YOUR TREATMENT AS A SLAVE - AND MANY OTHER THINGS THEY WILL OFFER ALONG WITH IT. - Retention is highest in the Industry - 1000 more - join them, you will realize yourself

    Pros

    If you are cunning, manipulative you can make yourself important here

    Cons

    I don't know where to start. Let me give you the conclusion. Start-ups are great. Only this place is pathetic. First of all they will present well written JDs. You'll be trapped to apply. Money will be good so you'll join too. But alas! In a few days you'll realize neither they have an idea why you're here nor you. Then comes the dreadful struggle of making yourself relevant. People have literally been given advise to "snatch work" from others. Because you know "start-up". Sitting idle is your problem not mine. Total lack of vision. Smart people..mind it top bschool guys are put to going stupid tasks. If they don't quit on their own, they will be asked to leave anyway after a few months. Work is so irrelevant that you will yourself think why did you come here. People are also highly misogynistic where some leaders have problem working with women because they can't talk to women same way they talk to men. In short, use inappropriate language. There is no plan for people's growth. No employee friendly policies (No HR Dept). Highly judgemental and immature leadership. Don't waste precious years of your career. Join a good startup. Do your due diligence.

    I worked at Box8 full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Food at discounted rate if you are ready to ignore kitchen conditions

    Cons

    Highly unethical and Unfair - Management always focus on changing rules to reduce incentive payout. No values - Best performing Senior Operations Managers in both Mumbai and Bangalore are still working in the company despite being caught in numerous manipulation practices. High attrition - Across all levels, nobody stays in the company because of the cheap, incompetent management. 3 types of employees are there at Box8. Serving Notice Period Working because they know, no other company would hire them. Significantly frustrated but can't leave because no other company would pay them what Box8 pays for skills they learned, work they do at Box8. Only way to survive - Say Yes and stop using own brain. May God save you if you want to join this company despite so many bad reviews. Talk to current and former employees before joining this company.

    Pros

    1. Will assign big responsibilities, so that you can learn from the job 2. Increments are better than industry standards 3. No attendance system 4. Young crowd 5. Cross functional roles

    Cons

    1. No work life balance 2. Separate project given to marketing team for improving glassdoor reviews - basically fake reviews 3. They fired a team giving just 1 day notice (told it was a business call) -so literally no job security 4. Founders expect you to work around 13-14 hrs a day, and tries to motivate you telling hardwork is required to progress in life. 5. Huge politics 6. HR policies are not even laid 7. Bad leave policy 8. 3 months notice period 9. 14 paid leaves an year 10. Micro-management
