    I have been working at Snapdeal

    Pros

    It has got Superb work environment, Nice balance between personal and professional life, I found Lots of things to learn about, Brand name makes feel proud and company is well known to every one.

    Cons

    Some time I feel company is off the track in terms of its objective and needs improvements in Customer care service, Co-ordination between different departments are not as it should be.

    Pros

    its joke for snapdeal employee/interviewer

    Cons

    1. they called many times for telephonic interview ,if you clear it they call you for f2f interview and everytime you have to waster your time minimum 8 hours and you have to at least 10 times for f2f , at last you decide not to go thee like me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    prepare interview panel , understand time is money for all not only for you ,
    don't waster people time if your panel is not ready , hire talented people so that your panel need not to read Google and ask question in interview

    Pros

    Work and the ownership you are given to finish a task. You are the whole and sole caretaker of all your projects and analysis.

    Cons

    Company is not employee oriented. Very weird criteria of rating and reviewing an employee. You will be so happy to work day and night for the company but in the end you find that the company is not that supportive.

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

    Pros

    1. You can open your company here and still be working in snapdeal. Many Senior Director level people have open their private companies with many Senior VP level People . This plays a huge role in day to day task management and showering praises.
    2. This is the only Tech Team in world which has more QA then developers with ratio of 1.5:1 in most cases.
    3. Hr strictly given commands to write nice review in glassdoor.
    4 Some of your peers would be given huge amount of salary as compared to you with you doing bulk of the work.
    4 No training/process.
    5. Attrition rate is amazingly high with actaully day you are replying to "Last Day" mails .
    6 Advice to New Joinees : Don't Join you would be ruining your careers.

    Cons

    1.Staying in the company for longer run would actually degrade your skill levels and you would find your self at the same scale technologically and sometimes lower then what you started with .
    2.There is nothing new,innovative or even average . Whole Technology team is below average and this is due to culture foster upon by senior management
    3.Age old technolgies like tomcat,spring,hibernate . I mean peers laugh when you discuss Technology stack of snapdeal with them .
    4.Leadership is utterly ill competitive to handle day to day tasks and have created a culture of "trying to stay in good books ". You do that and don't do any work . You would be promoted to Lead.
    5 Hell Bent favouritism on front end teams(Front end java developers) with highest appraisal given to them which is killing innovation .This shows logical comprehension of Leaadership.
    6 People think that they are doing out of this world work but in reality nothing but a simple mundane product development tasks.
    7 98 % of team is new and no people remain here for more than 6 months . People who also generally remains have other plans and they treat this as stop gap arrangements.
    8 Out of turm promotions for below average people who just have links with senior technology management.
    9. Senior Vp level people term themseleves a technological geeks . But only think they do is doing Automated reply to mails with phrases like "Excellent work team" , " Great work !!", "you are an inspiration" .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change whole Technology Management in snapdeal. I mean site most of the time remains down. We at meeting only discuss how to counter act product manager skillset ..You are trying to build a world class product with third class senior management .
