      Pros

      Employee Discount on Food. You'll love any other job after you work here.

      Cons

      Firstly, the CTC is a lie, don't fall for it. Over exploitation of employees. No work life balance. No weekends. No HR policies, like seriously, HR doesn't exist. No proper salary structure. They treat you like slaves and you'll get work calls even at 2 am and 5 am, not kidding. It is a SHOP, not a company. No degree of helplessness is worth working here. They do not treat you like humans, they treat you like slaves.

      Worst Management. A huge NO if you are looking to join.

      Pros

      Provide cross functional roles, Discount on food to employees. If you are ready to eat after knowing the condition of kitchen.

      Cons

      No work life balance, you are responsible for the full day operations have to attend the issue from morning 5AM to late night 2 AM Marketing team is asked to give feedback on social platforms to improving glassdoor reviews - basically fake reviews They fired a team giving just 1 day notice (told it was a business call) -so literally no job security, have fired ground HR team, and hiring responsible is added on operation team. Management expect you to work around 12-13 hrs a day, and tries to motivate you telling hardwork is required, giving fake examples of colleges form different cities. Huge politics - if you want to be in top management you have to be from ISM Dhanbad. Bad leave policy, No week offs, even if you are on long vacation with family you have to manage it over call. 3 months notice period Founders have no value to their employees, they use foul language. Incentive structure is just to keep everyone working for 24 hr a day and at month end they use to change their rules and make sure you get nothing. You will never get salary on time. Founders changes their rules literally every week, looking like they themselves doesn't have any vision. A huge NO, if you are thinking to work with Bxo8.

      Pros

      Error 401! Content not found

      Cons

      1. Ethics: Leave them outside the office and pick up on your way back home 2. Work-Life Balance: Your life is an amalgam of 3 types of working days, normal day (Weekdays), back-breaking day (Weekends) and excruciating day (Holidays). Feel free to live your life otherwise. 3. Work Culture: These guys are better than paparazzi on surveilling your personal life! 4. Work/Learning: Wide opportunities ranging from tracking outlet employees via CCTV, to contacting connoisseurs to send free meals in return of good ratings, to writing positive Glassdoor reviews and the list goes on :) 5. Management: The Core team comprising of 5 members including Founders (Please stop writing Core Team member in your Designation) has a really high level of intellect. I understood them as much as an engineer understands Arts. 6. Compensation: You would be bamboozled with a new reason every month for your salary not getting processed on time (or at all!). Although the real reason are your bad "buttering" skills.
