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

    Pros

    Relatively chill. If you get hired, you will be given time to learn. But since there is no infrastructure to measure time spend, people will not waste their time on you.

    Cons

    No one knows what is running in production. People do things for the sake of doing it. No infrastructure(both management and engineering)

    Advice to Management

    Company is very mismanaged.

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

    Pros

    The work environment was extreme awesome. People really loved to solve the real life challenge. But, now it is a history!

    Cons

    Lot of politics. In competent managers with boot licking ladder all around.

    Advice to Management

    Please remove the boot licking politics from the engineering teams. The managers are extremely dumb and are not competent for leading the team. Nobody thinks of innovations but copying features from Uber. This is a sheer shame for the product team.

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

    Pros

    You will get to work in a start-up like culture, where you own product development. It has also been around for 6+ years, which kind of makes it a stable environment

    Cons

    Although you get to own and develop, you kind of get caught up in the politics of the company. And the Development managers do not have much technical background, so they do not understand the nuances of the feature and tend to push the feature as fast as possible, in order to score some brownie points from their higher ups. Sometimes they push developers to work on features even before the requirements are finalised.

    Advice to Management

    Hire good development managers, otherwise this company will not have good scalable products
