    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - A good brand, especially in international markets for future jobs - Good hustling experience - Learning on how to handle pressure

    Cons

    - No defined strategy and roadmaps - for company or employees - Every quarter the focus shifts from one thing to another. So if you are in the 'flavor of the quarter' then forget work-life balance - Salary hikes are sub-par compared to industry

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on employee satisfaction. The attrition rates are clear indication that there is a dire need to define the organization's culture
