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

    Pros

    There are definitely strong reasons that one should consider working here, such as:
    1) Good Pay Master.
    2) Brand Name.
    3) They make you work a lot, which can in-turn help you learn a lot.
    4) At times internally, being an employee of this company you get to know good airfare/packages deals, etc. which might help you, your friends and family to plan trips at cheaper rates.
    5) Infrastructure is good.

    Cons

    There are multiple reasons that could be stated here from the experiences I've personally had, though will in general share a few of them:
    1) Lots of Internal Politics starting from lowest Manager level.
    2) Partiality and Favoritism of Bosses is the "Key to Success" here among each and every department of MakeMyTrip.
    3) Your hard work, stretching for long hours, coming on weekends for work, won't make any difference at all, in the eyes of your Manager, as that is all going to go in vain at the time of Yearly review. As your KRA's are just set as a part of the process to complete the formality, but, nothing else, they won't make any difference when it actually has to be discussed at Year end, it can either be changed anytime during the year without your information, or you can accept to hear strange ways to measure it or compare it with others in team, not told to you at the time of KRA setting, which will fade off/nullify your entire work done throughout the year.
    4) Bad working culture prevails here, especially for Females, such as, Managers prefers for Evening dinners with teams, instead of Day-time lunches, which is always convenient for all girls in the team, on the contrary girls are forced to join them for such events. Drinking a lot and loosing control after that is a very common scene here at Office Parties. Use of abusive language among males is a frequent sight in office hours & premises. If you wear formal to work place, you would be made fun off, with comments such as ("where are you going for an interview today?"). Managers tries to be overly interested/poking in whats going on in your personal life, and if you are not of the same nature, and have your own set of family values and work-ethics you will have a tough time working here, else be a part of his/her gang, and be happy. Managers will ensure round the year he/she keeps you insecure about your Job, and no matter how much efforts you are putting in, or have actually shown results, you can be asked to leave anytime with vague reasons given to you, as compared to those members of your team, who rarely work, but, know how to please there Boss. Huge monetary contributions can be a regular ask here for events day-in and day-out, like somebody's B'day, marriage, offsite contributions for drinks and non-veg food etc. (even if you don't drink or eat non-veg), and if you are not comfortable for contributing in it, your manager will ensure to taunt you for such things publicly every-time and make you feel awkward and look-down upon yourself, that you can't afford such expenses etc.
    5) Higher Management is not at all supportive, rather very diplomatic and manipulative, if you reach out to them for help, don't expect anything from them, or any understanding but, sweet talks and sympathetic replies in return.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management, should do a introspect wile finalizing/choosing managers. They should strongly work on exit-feedback given by candidates leaving the company, which shows 99% would be leaving MMT cause of their Managers and not work, which is a sad but, an unchanged Truth. Their should be Open-door policies in place and not just for name-sake, and Higher Management should intervene in matters or at least be unbiased while judging them, this will ensure trust of employees and make it stronger in the management. If Managers here at MMT are kept under control and limits are defined, and more of formal and professional work environment is practiced here, things can be far better from what they are. Yes, MakeMyTrip does have this culture of "Fun at Work", which is good, but, that doesn't mean, or shouldn't be taken too much in a casual way, all employees come to office only to work, and get good salary and perks in return, this is what basically keeps any employee happy and motivated to work. Thus, if work-culture at MakeMyTrip is corrected, especially from Managers level, it can actually be a "Great Place To Work" and not just a Bought Tag, for which huge money is paid to keep a good brand image.

    Pros

    salary is good as compared to other companies in NCR
    good technologies to work.

    Cons

    highly unprofessional company
    no work life balance
    lots of politics
    blame game all around
    work culture like a government company in terms of resolving dependencies
    The biggest one, company does not have a single document for website. No one has complete business knowledge and due to this you are gonna suffer for sure.
    You cant change team once you are stuck, then stuck forever

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please bring some transparency and at least make documents for website
