      Extremely toxic work culture.

      Pros

      Good pay but they really make you work for every penny.

      Cons

      The worst. Zero work life balance. I was promised a 9 hour/5 day work ween but they made it a 6 day week while keeping the hours same. On paper it's 9 hours a day but you'll be working close to 12-14 hours. It's rare that you'll even get one whole day off in a week. They'll expect you to be available well before and after your working hours. The top management sets very unreasonable targets and give you very little time to plan so you'll be expected to work day and night just to get called out when it inevitable fails. They have this terrible YouTube Festival concept every single week so you can say bye to your weekend plans. They tell you that they care about you, that they value their employees and they constantly preach about mental health and then they'll take away your weekends and grill you all week. The HR is pretty useless and will never help. Just pretty promises and 'We love our employees' presentations every other week. The managers are clueless and some of the dumbest people you'll ever meet. You can find solace in the fact that almost everyone working there feels the same way and is suffering.

      Avoid any Edtech Unicorn

      Pros

      Good Start as a Fresher, only in terms of Salary

      Cons

      Like other Unicorn Edtech Startups, the company only focus on Sales, Sales and Sales. You do the Calltime or you do the sales. Work Life balance is 0. I don't know how it is having a rating of 3.9. It should be sinking in 2. The HR is only there for hiring. Everything goes through the Director of Sales. No Leaves on crappy Mission Wednesday. If you cannot do sales, you leave the organisation. Higher management does not assist the employee in improving, they rather prefer to dump the non performing assets and hire new freshers who want to be a part of labour games. The Founders are unresponsive. They took so much investment that now they have to deliver. If you want to join the shithole, please join otherwise avoid.

      Company with a good culture

      3 Dec 2020 - Senior Manager in Bangalore

      Pros

      1. You definitely get to learn a lot and implement a lot of ideas which are inline with the company's vision and Senior management is always open to listen to them. 2. They focus a lot on Emp happiness and culture and try different ways to keep them with in the company circle and would want to make it fun while working as well. Perks and benefits are one of the best in the industry in this domain, as far your output metrics are always delivered. 4. Growth is fast and you get that by proving your worth in the company

      Cons

      1. Personal time does take a toll if you are at a senior level with in the company because the work and company demands that (but you will be rewarded in due time) 2. Though they say its an open door policy, it docent seem that way. 3. Think of it like Apple. There is loads of pressure at times and that will determine how long can you stay with in the company which for some people isn't good. 4. Hiring a lot of Leadership teams from other companies, means that they come with their style of work and that docent turn out to be good for anyone who is in the company for long. 5. Your role and boss can change at anytime just because the company has taken the decision.

      Working at Unacademy is really fun as we get to interact with various teams and get to learn and explore many fields. The learning and growth here is great.

      Unacademy is a fast-paced company so sometimes work can be overwhelming due to early deadlines but it makes us push ourselves to work in a better and more efficient way.
