    I have been working at WebEngage full-time

    Pros

    WebEngage culture is one of the best I have seen in my experience. If you are a self-starter and can work hard then this is one of the places to get recognition for your hard work. Management is focused to create wealth for their employees which is commendable.

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the culture intact even though we grow 2X from now.

    Pros

    I have been with WebEngage for almost 2 years now and the experience has been simply amazing throughout. Apt environment to work, learn and grow! Personally, I haven't had a single day where I saw a dip in my learning and being an enthusiastic start-up, it has always given a stage for employees to do wonders. One of the best places to work if you are a commitment driven individual, ready to grab opportunities and make it big!

    Cons

    None that I can think of!

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and lets build an awesome solution!

    I have been working at WebEngage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Great work environment
    - a lot of growth opportunities
    - freedom to make decisions
    - A great set of peers
    - direct access to higher management, aiding to learning and growth
    - Involvement in company level decisions
    - visibility and transparency
    - recognition for individual contributions

    Cons

    - being almost bootstrapped except a few small investments, the company is very cost sensitive. Which is good mostly but at times hampers a few expansion ideas
    - Physical Presence in limited geographies, need more touchpoints to grow at large

    Advice to Management

    Should look at expanding in more geographies in order to achieve higher company level goals.
    Keep trusting the in-house talent for higher roles as you always have.
    Also, it is ok to detach a few in the long run who are not aligned with company's growth goals.

    Pros

    A great work environment with multiple opportunities to grow at each level, across teams. If you have the drive, persistence & right attitude - nothing will stop you from making it big at this company.

    Cons

    No major cons as such. All growing companies face a certain amount of chaos in terms of structure, processes & delegation in their growth phase. But the people and management are always around to help.

    I have been working at WebEngage full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pros

    I’ve spent just about over a year here at WebEngage and I could write an essay about what makes this place awesome. The first remarkable thing about WebEngage is how young the team is. Young and bright, with the right amount of focus - chasing their professional and personal goals.
    Everyone who has an ‘itch’ to prove themselves is encouraged to go pursue what they are seeking. It’s one of the pillars, WebEngage is built on. If you think you can do something new, something differently or something better; you will always be given the resources and necessary motivation to do so.
    Ask anyone what they like about WebEngage and they will answer “Culture”. What is this culture? Percolating from the Founders to everyone else within WebEngage has an atmosphere and environment to learn and grow. Avlesh and Ankit are always available to enable you to grow.
    I’m part of the Sales team and this is the most fun I’ve had working in any organization. The team is self-motivated and has the right amount of aggression to crack deals. That itself, speaks volumes of the leadership.
    A major plus point with WebEngage are the clients. WebEngage boasts of some major businesses Online and Offline, globally, where great impact is being made. Working with such businesses are, insightful in itself.
    Among other things there are a few small aspects which makes it fun working here - one of them is the Friday lunches. An hour where everyone catches up over lunch to banter or play a game of charades. The MACs!!, on-the-house snacks and the TT table to de-stress after talking to a particularly demanding client.
    Overall, this place has a great environment to work! WebEngage is growing and ensuring that they take everyone along.

    Cons

    It’s not even a negative point, considering the nature of the industry; but there are few women at WebEngage. The disparity is noticeable. However, there’s an active effort being made to change that, especially in the Sales Team. That said, the women love it here. The boys will really watch out for you and even take care to mind their language.

    Advice to Management

    None. You're doing a great job. Keep doing what you're doing. Keep valuing your people :-)

    Pros

    Its like living a dream. There is enormous learning opportunity and exposure. You are free to take ownership, experiment new things on your own (probably similar to the Google 80-20 rule, they should make it official for all the teams)
    One can see the passion for their startup in both the co-founders and some early employees which percolates down to others.

    Cons

    There is limited knowledge transfer from the experienced folks, which they have admitted and started to address

    Advice to Management

    Don't get blinded by the current growth pace. Its just the beginning, you have a lot more to innovate and disrupt. We all believe in you and each other.
    You have had kickass teams and employees. Do not let them leave so easily.

    Pros

    I am writing this review because glassdoor doesn't let you view one unless you have added a review yourself.

    - It's a great company. If you are in tech you should thank your stars for having been able to work under Ankit. This guy knows almost everything that is to be known about what he does. I am not a coder so I wouldn't really understand his actual forte but I would pay to listen to him. He had the best answer whenever I posed him any question.

    - "Avlesh is a nice guy." Employees here do use this sentence to describe him and I know only few CEOs who ever manage to achieve this repute. You see culture of a company trickles down from its founders. So if they are sorted you got everything else covered.

    - Clean, beautiful office, fancy office complex. Snacks, friday free lunch.

    - Product is growing and so is clientele. They don't look at the investors with their tongue out for paying salaries. Having worked in such company I can tell you to disgust you feel.

    Cons

    Not really. If you keep your head down and focus on work you are going to grow both salary and position wise. Like any other company, this one too has some downsides but I feel ridiculous to mention them because they are ridiculous. For instance, somebody mentioned here low salary. Relax man, open your eyes. This is one of the highest paying tech companies I know. Don't compare with Flipkart and the likes. These companies even have their toilet paper sponsored by investors. Jabong's CEO didn't show up in office for 2 months so we got no comparison here.

    Just do your job here. Everything will be taken care of.

    Advice to Management

    They just don't fire anyone. Never. This lets low performers stay in the team this just creates a safety bed for others who want to cut corners. You may be a solid high performing employee but if you see your peer getting away with minuscule KRA you would recalibrate your performance metric. Low performance is contagious and these guys don't get it.

    Pros

    One will definitely enjoy working here.
    1.Great office,
    2. amazing people,
    3. the product is good( a little buggy, but has potential)
    4. the engineering team is great
    5. salary structure is pretty competitive.

    Cons

    1. The HR is pretty useless and inefficient, be it employee management or talent recruitment.
    2. Good people are leaving the company.
    3. HR people don't reach out to the freshers/interns who apply for a job.
    4. Even candidate profiles referred by senior engineers are left in the queue. As a result, candidates contact us again and again in Linkedin/email and finally join other companies.

    Advice to Management

    WebEngage is a great start-up where people want to work. Please take actions and get an efficient HR team.
    Also:
    1. Focus on Employee satisfaction,
    2. Proper Talent recruitment Policy
