    Pros

    People here at Paytm are very driven for a common goal - One million orders will happen here first.
    The pace at which we work is both maddening and exhilarating . The best part is that people here are judged upon their work and not experience , you might be one month old into the company but you can be driving an entire project. The office parties are fun and its like being in college and being paid !

    Cons

    Since people here work at 150% torque all the time , the stress can sometimes become overbearing. Also, since priorities change round the clock , there's no roadmap but just a hike in the dark.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We should probably have more stable priorities , that might help getting things more streamlined.

    I have been working at One97 Communications full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Sense of responsibility, hands on production experience . Not a formal office culture. Everything remains quite transparent. You'll find yourself sitting right next to the VP Engineering, the ceo taking a walk and talking to you.

    While some may consider this as a flaw, I think for a startup, it helps staying in touch with the vision of the company.

    Its fun working off hours, having pizzas and coke while you're making a feature live. I don't think bigger companies offer this kind of culture.

    Cons

    Work-life balance can sometimes take a toll. It depends on person to person how they balance this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scale without process results in chaos.

    Pros

    Paytm Team:
    1. Learning opportunity
    2. One of the places where you can actually learn scalability
    3. Great Team

    Cons

    1. Work life balance might be an issue, if you are not one of the guys who slip in the crack and find comfort zone
    2. Out of sight, out of mind, sometime your hard/noble work might go unnoticed
    3. HR is ineffective

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Avoid being impulsive
    2. Tune up HR for them to really be concerned about employee welfare
