    Nothing in specific

    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Ola full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Good learning curve. You've got the opportunity to learn a lot on the job. - Talented peer group. You can find some really talented people from whom you can learn a lot. - Few really good teams. The good teams that are there are really good. They do cutting-edge work which are at the forefront in any industry.

    Cons

    - Long working hours. The little good work you're doing will be bogged down by the tons of very poor, tedious work thrust on you. - Highly political management. Despite being a start-up promotions and career-growth are highly political and dependent on how much you bootlick your manager ( which can involve taking up a lot of poor quality work, toiling away on the weekends unnecessarily). - Unstructured... organization. Despite being around for close to a decade, the org is still majorly unstructured with no clear division of responsibilities and with poor work frequently being dumped on the ones weak enough to not push back. - Un-competitive pay. Although the work is above mark standards and the workload is much higher the pay is still only at average market level or below. This has caused heavy attrition across levels and management does not seem interested in correcting it. - From 2019, all perks have also been withdrawn. You don't get free lunches and the snacks in the cafeteria have also been scaled back majorly.

    Advice to Management

    Bring a proper structure to the organization. Reduce the politics and red-tape present in many product teams.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Ola full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively chill. If you get hired, you will be given time to learn. But since there is no infrastructure to measure time spend, people will not waste their time on you.

    Cons

    No one knows what is running in production. People do things for the sake of doing it. No infrastructure(both management and engineering)

    Advice to Management

    Company is very mismanaged.
