    I have been working at Hike full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Food Average Technology Stack Office Location

    Cons

    All positive reviews are fake, mistakenly I go through the review & joined the company. And that’s my biggest mistake to join hike. I don’t recommend this company especially for Software Engineers Role(Backend+Mobile) both. Zero Work-life balance, High-pressure environment for all experiences(0..10 Years) of Engineers. Unrealistic deadlines for developers. No Saturday & Sunday even no working hours. U have to work till 12 AM midnight normally. Hiring & Firing is normal here, so ur job is always insecure. Initially, I thought it’s an engineering company but u hardly got time to learn new things. If u r a Tech-oriented person with a dream to work for Google/Microsoft/Facebook etc than Never come to Hike. It's far away from ur expectations. It’s a complete a startup u ll always mess up with Hike work & High Working Pressure. Example:- To develop a big module u ll get 3 - 4 days. Ideally, it would take 8-10 days. So now u can imagine of work pressure. Moreover, they will count ur Sat & Sundays in ur work estimate. Tech stack is average & free food is the only positive thing I found here. Regular survey taken for company feedback (this is good) but they hardly take any action to improve.

    I worked at Hike full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked there for almost 3 years 1. You got to learn multiple engineering based domains which most of companies don't even require. Since the product is entirely engineering driven 2. Very flexible culture in terms of projects and office timings . 3. Awesome food + Non CTC perks + Inducive Office environment 4. You grow not only in what you do but wholesome. You get knowledge of design , data , product almost everything everyday . 5. Fast learning Curve for freshers 6. CEO of the company is very motivating , encouraging and keeps everything transparent with the team and There will be meetups He will interact with different teams explaining product strategy going forward and clearing all doubts , taking feedbacks and addressing the problems faces by individual team 7. Flat Heirarchy. I have closely worked with VPO of the company . He keeps us motivated and helped me multiple times in giving product , UX and engineering suggestions and feedbacks.

    Cons

    Since I joined as a fresher I couldn't think of any con for fresher like me . Only Thing I would say We should reply on young talent.

    I have been working at Hike full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
