      Poor work culture and management

      Jun 9, 2021 - Software Development Engineer (SDE) II in Bangalore

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      1) You will get to work with Few of the great minds in the industry. 2) Fast Pace Development. 3) Learning (Both tech and personal)

      Cons

      1) Politics 2) Poor Management—they don't even know what they want to do in the near future. 3) Higher Attrition Rate (In the past 6-7 months the tech team count has been reduced to 50%) So many good people who had worked hard left. The company doesn't value anything but revenue. 4) The product team is not good as it has to be. They just want to release a product no matter the quality and user experience. 5) It was good in the initial days when I joined, but with each passing day they are behaving more like a service-based organisation. 6) I must say that Ola is not an Employee-Friendly organisation. We started working 6 days from Jan 2021 even if there was no new product to be launched. When the country was going through the Covid pandemic, they asked each employee to come to the office and mandatorily between 9:30 and 5:30. No value to the employee only to the business. 7) New people are not joining the company as it has 6 days/week working. 8) No career growth as the people whom you are reporting don't have enough time because they need to handle a big team (because so many dev managers have already left due to this toxic work culture and now most of the team have common dev managers).

      Good Brand and Bad Policies

      Pros

      Salary is good and the reason for that is in Cons part. Apart from this I have nothing to mention.

      Cons

      They are giving all the benefits in the cost of your health. They force you to come to office and on the other hand they say it's not mandatory. They were open even in covid wave 2 just to make money when whole country was suffering in this pandemic. No work-life balance. They force people to come to office who are doing work from home from their hometown and can't take risk to travel. Where other companies extended work from home till Dec end 2021, this company is risking employees health. Team managers force their whole team to come to office. They don't care how they just want you to be in office. HR team is worst. They just impose the rules, behave badly and shout at employees seems like they are boss of the company.
