    I worked at Hike full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I worked there for almost 3 years 1. You got to learn multiple engineering based domains which most of companies don't even require. Since the product is entirely engineering driven 2. Very flexible culture in terms of projects and office timings . 3. Awesome food + Non CTC perks + Inducive Office environment 4. You grow not only in what you do but wholesome. You get knowledge of design , data , product almost...

    Pros

    Nice looking office Good pay master

    Cons

    Work-life balance is non existent - Managers will ping you post workhours on week days and weekends asking you to hurry on things that are no where close to urgent or important No off time - there are no holidays given + teams are asked to come in on Saturdays frequently. On sundays you often start getting follow up mails for next week. Planned holidays are difficult to get - even if you get it ...If you take a planned...

    I worked at Hike full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In my experience Hike’s team was one of the best teams that I have ever worked with. Kavin is one of the best entrepreneurs that I also have worked with. I was there for a year and I wish that I was there longer. I reported Kavin directly during my tenure at Hike and have nothing but great things to say about him and his leadership. I still miss my the Hike days. Kavin pays attention to every detail and passionate about...

    Cons

    I don’t see this as a con but some people are just not built for a startup like this and including myself we couldn’t match the team’s pace and energy. Anyone willing to commit and question your status quo, and willing to change yourself from the core, this is the place to be. If not this not your cup of tea.

    Advice to Management

    Kavin is super smart. Super ambitious. Super human. I encourage everyone in hike to believe in him. I encourage Kavin to just allow some product ideas to be filtered closely and give time for them to settle. Other than that, I am a fan of hike and Kavin for the rest of my life. Wish you guys nothing but great luck.
