    Pros

    There is so much in life that counts - a lesson I have learnt AFTER leaving Paytm. If I had not been so swayed at that moment, I would have been enjoying these: a super friendly environment! We could just think up anything - whether related to work, or an event that we wanted held, which I term as extra-curricular activities - and just go ahead an do it! We were always encouraged. At anytime during my 2 year stay, I never felt that my designation mattered. If in a meeting I would suggest an idea, I would get as much credit for it as a senior would get. I miss these things now.

    Cons

    Well, I think sometimes the company moves with such a speed that people are left without the knowledge of what's happening or where they are heading. By the time the management addresses the people, things have moved even further ahead.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say, talk to the people more often!

    I have been working at One97 Communications

    Pros

    Have joined 2 years back and it has been a roller coaster ride with full of learning’s and great technology work with team. You will get all appreciations and rewards for your hard work.
    Good compensation.
    Work on advance technology
    Performance driven culture
    You can speak and reach out to any one in the organization for help and support. Not a designation or hierarchical approach in the company.

    Cons

    More colourful cafeteria. Company should now build own campus.

    Doing Good!

    People are forced to write good reviews here from inside the company!!

    I have been working at One97 Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Company wants a good image outside, hence forces existing employees to write good reviews at Glassdoor! You can expect the tyranny and bullyness in such a workplace!
    -You'll learn a lot about how to threaten and bully people into doing what you want!
    -Even though business looks good from outside, inside, they'll treat you like caged animals.

    Cons

    -As said, company stoops to any level to protect image and bring business, including extortion, threatening, kidnapping, bribing.
    -No growth in skills at all, you'll find it hard to find job outside if you spend long time here.
    -Incompetent people laughing at you because you can't do anything because they are above you
    -Politics played in front of your eyes, and you can't do a thing about it! Forget promotion, or increment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    Pros

    Its good workplace to start career as Software Engineer.
    Due to hectic work load and rigorous changes in requirements one needs to be quick in accepting challenges and implementing the same.

    Cons

    No software development life-cycle is followed.
    Favoritism is there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to identify talents in employees and utilize them, before they leave you and serve your own competitors in market.

    Pros

    Company has a great potential for growth being in this industry.

    Cons

    No personal life. Weekend is not holiday but work from home.
    No respect for employees contributions.
    Structure and processes in engineering are non existent.

    Should be the last option for anyone considering and is best avoided.

    HR is helpless and decision making is very absurd.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point. Nothing can change..
