Good Engineering team

Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Mumbai (India)

I worked at SMS GupShup full-time for less than a year

ProsGet to build up products using latest tech stack tools. Got to learn quiet a bit in my tenure
Smart intelligent engineers
Ownership of the product is given
my Supervisor was good and considerate
Engineering team is helpful. The superiors are helpful in making you understand how the code base works. That was great!
Flat hierarchy for engineering division
Free lunch
Good pay

ConsThe engineers are made to interface with the customer support everyday, which hampers productivity and creates unnecessary pressure.
The customer delight team takes time from the engineering division team to enforce their constraints. those two should be seperate
The code base is huge, so the time taken to look at the perspective should be given .
The most important thing was, the equipment given to a senior engineer was a Dell Inspiron 1525. I think the organization can provide better machinery if they want more productivity.
The less inteference from tech support team would be an advantage
Hire and fire policy is not justified. I think the load balancing should be done appropriately.

The interviews for senior positions go on for 8 rounds or more. The engineers should be less burdened I think!

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease do not let the business management interface with engineering team the way you guys do. It makes thinsg more complicated for the engineers.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
