    I have been working at upGrad full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work culture, team mates are young and enthusiastic.

    Cons

    Policy changes every week. While joining, it was a 5 day a week 10-7 job but in reality you cannot leave work even after 0830-9pm. The everyday commute is very difficult and you are left with no personal life or time, work life balance is a disaster. You are forced to work 6 or even 7 days a week with no extra pay or comp offs. The higher management and the newly appointed CEO is imposing ridiculous policies in the name of organizational growth which is leading to job insecurity and affecting mental health of employees. Unrealistic targets (daily and quarterly) are supposed to be met, otherwise you will get Loss of Pays daily and eventually you are out of the organization. What even is job security? If the trend continues, the company will soon loose it's employees as the environment has already become toxic and negative (and these the most polite words that I could find)
