Former Employee - Software Engineer in Colombo (Sri Lanka)

I worked at WSO2 full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Opportunity to work and learn in an open source environment
Working with latest technologies
Very flexible work hours

Cons

Mediocre middle management in multiple teams.
Growth depends on the teams.
Company politics and nepotism.
Very flexible work hours means, you should be willing to work 24*7 when the need arises.
Some teams have a better culture, where the others do not. The best is showcased during the hiring.
Company is slowly moving towards a closed-culture from its original openness and pure open source.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More attention towards middle management and product team leads.

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO
