    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.

    Pros

    nothing, nothing, nothing, career suicide, nothing again

    Cons

    Heavy favoritism, stupid employees resorting to obvious and cheap politics, and you can't do anything except to watch them get promoted. Cheap labor class hired, paid like wages in factories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    fire yourself.

    Pros

    Personal growth for people who know how to please the management and they need not be qualified and most of them are not. Have risen only on the basis of their loyalty to the ceo, people who can't even get a receptionist's job in the market - can be found here designated as VP. Nothing professional about the organisation.

    Cons

    immature management, no transparency, nothing professional about the company, its a one man show, no job security, if you want to ruin your career, just go ahead and join. Unjust and arbitrary action, no reason. Pays media to always be in the news - always hiring, but they don't tell you how many they fire without any rhyme or reason. they want people who are not smart and don't have a mind of their own. Ceo thinks he has got all the brains in the world, very shrewd and cunning. His younger brother is two steps ahead of him. He heads a function, otherwise not qualified or polished enough - even to get a job somewhere else.This company has made money from malpractices by bribing people at telecom operator end, and by forcefully deducting money from prepaid balance of the users. No morals - pimps. Believe in promoting their own.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice will be to the investors at large who have taken risk with their money to bring in people to take control of this company and overhaul and bring in qualified people, otherwise it will be too late for them. This management has made their millions, diluted their stakes and secured their future. Now its only investors who will bleed.
