    Pros

    I got to work with some of the smartest minds. There is a great work atmosphere with a good balance of work and fun. I had a brilliant learning curve as I got to work on multiple technologies within just two years. A lot of the work I did had a good amount visibility associated to it and so it was always felt like I was making a difference.

    Bureaucracy had started creeping in. The previously existing flexibility in choosing projects had started fading away.

    I worked at Flipkart full-time

    Pros

    - Get to work in a high-growth dynamnic environemnt and on interesting projects
    - Work and learn from some of the best in the industry
    - Work closely on the business side of things where you can learn more than in a process-oriented company. Can work on projects that make a real impact

    Cons

    - The aggressive and high-growth environment gives rise to very unhealthy competition where
        everyone appears to be fighting for credit
    - Managers often do not stand up for team members. You are on your own.

    Advice to Management

    If there is a shared focus on building an explar company, then chances of retaining goo talent are higher. The focus currently is only on revenue metrics which is slowly making the work culture regressive.
