    Pros

    Great Place to learn while work. It’s been 5+ years and can proudly say it’s a company to learn and grow. Company value it’s culture and the people. Everyone in the company is passionate about the goal and working together in achieving the same. Team members are easily approachable from top to bottom. Being a women employee, I can say the Company is paying utmost attention in taking care of Work Life Balance and Security.
    Managers are well connected with team and fully responsible for individual growth. Not only delivery, even tech events such as “Hackathon” etc. are conducted regularly.

    Cons

    Nothing, that I can think of.

    Advice to Management

    I believe, we are on the right path with right people.

    Pros

    You don't have to worry about anything but deadlines over here and the best part is the people you work with. Everyone is so talented over here that they bring out the best in each other. Office is superb and so is the interior design that not only allows you to work away from desk but also provides you a great environment to work in. Food is amazing, wether you want it healthy or hearty you got it all over here in the 24x7 open cafeteria.

    Cons

    Office provides you such amazing environment you forget about going home on time xD

    Advice to Management

    keep up the good work !!

    I have been working at Hike full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Extremely open & inclusive work culture
    No tolerance of office politics or bureaucratic processes
    Great place for ambitious people who take ownership to rapidly grow
    High receptiveness to feedback on anything from anyone if it holds merit

    Cons

    Not a good place for 'senior' professionals (who want agreement because of their past experience instead of the merit of their ideas)
    Not a good place for irrational folks (who get attached to their ideas and aren't willing to cut losses/do what needs to be done in a ruthless, competitive space)
    Not the ideal place for people who are looking for guidance and direction all the time (instead of figuring things out themselves)

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire any more senior professionals. What we're doing has never been done before, by anyone. We need radical, fresh thinking - not archaic processes and ideas that may have worked somewhere else at some point in the past.

    Really happy we've cut a lot of the flab and gone back to startup war mode in the last 6 months.
