    I worked at Kobster.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free learning platform
    Friendly work environment & flexible work timings
    Keeps no track of anybody's performance & no rating system
    Management is not very strict about tasks assigned & they do not ask you anything, at all.

    Cons

    It is the most misguided company & it has no "fixed" goals to achieve.
    Splurged almost all of the funding that was raised and employees were fired for the business calls that were taken during the due course
    The Management is not open for dissent and there is no redressal process for anything
    All you have to do is just go to work, chat and get back home if you are not career driven
    There is no collaboration between key teams and everybody blames each other for failure
    No appraisal even if you perform out of the box
    Gossiping & bullying within the office space without rationale discussion about it is very much prevalent
    Getting fired without any explanation is one more sad thing about this company
    No exit interviews and no like minded employees around
    No career growth and no mentions of what is going to be happening in the next few months

    Advice to Management

    Management is a joke. They dream of higher goals, speak a lot of gas in all meetings and end up doing nothing. There will be no going back after a failure, at least to understand "what went wrong". More over, the company is strictly only for puppets who would be saying yes to what ever the Management decides. It is high time the Management accepts dissents and stops gossiping. They initially proclaimed to be a "flat hierarchy" company, where as they do not even have a single policy that supports this claim. The Management has to stop giving importance to their closest circle of friends that work under them to curtail the exit of performing individuals.

    I have been working at Kobster.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can spend time without doing any work.
    You can always keep thinking without executing anything
    Management will ask you to make new plans but everything will be kept on hold
    so you don't have to actually think. you just have to pretend

    Cons

    They will call you anytime and say that they don't have fund and you can leave the organization.
    You should be ready expecting the company to shutdown at anytime.
    Do not expect any hike unless you have plans to stay for 3 years in the company

    Advice to Management

    Do not give false promises and play with employees life. Do not speak about culture in meetings when you do not any such.
