    Pros

    It is really a world class startup with an audacious vision. Great senior leaders. There is a great potential for growth as organization is growing. Founding team needs to be congratulated for their achievement. It is not easy to build a 500 people strong organization ground up in seven years. They practice what they preach. When the company says it can help you digitally transform- it is out of its own experience of building 3-4 highly successful digital products. It is like apple teaching you how to build ipod not someone who has heard or read about it.

    Cons

    Canteen food can be better

    Advice to Management

    - More financial discipline in resources a
    - Faster execution and Result orientation at level 2 -3 ..

    I have been working at PurpleTalk full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I started my journey with PurpleTalk 8 years ago as an Engineer. Working at PurpleTalk has been extremely rewarding so far. When I joined PurpleTalk, I was taken away with the flatness of the system and how entire leadership was quite accessible to everyone at the company. Prior to PurpleTalk, I worked with a top product company. During my two year stint, I hardly got a chance for a personal interaction with anyone beyond my Project Manager and I believe this is true across the industry. Where an opportunity to make a real impact at the organization level or being heard comes late in the career.

    Despite being a services company, leadership at PurpleTalk has built a strong ownership driven product culture. It’s a new age digital innovation hub where the entire team is very receptive to feedback. This reflects in our internal as well as all client interactions. As a company, we are driven by our passion for excellence and to achieve this we listen to what our customers and employees have to say. At PurpleTalk, we don’t just accept client’s projects and deliver them. We collaborate, brain storm, provide inputs, listen to feedbacks and implement.

    PurpleTalk invests heavily in ideas and newer technologies and provides its employees with an equal opportunity to test their true potential. This is a major differentiator from any peer in the market. At PurpleTalk, if an associate comes with a product idea, the company welcomes it and evaluates if the idea is scalable. If found suitable, the company even help employees in their entrepreneurship journeys. In my case, I presented an idea at one of the internal lean startup business plan contest . I was asked by none other than CEO if I'm interested in pursuing it further. This followed with a dedicated team and a lot of support from the leadership team. One of the founders is personally involved to a great extent, he provides a lot of support and mentoring in terms of shaping up strategy, product, sales, marketing etc. Although there is a lot of support from PurpleTalk leadership, it is not at the cost of autonomy. PurpleTalk has various such initiatives in place in form of Hackathons, Digital Ninja workshops, Lean principle workshops etc.

    I have been actively pursuing Nukkad Shops for about 1.5 years now and we pivoted a few times during our journey before we found the right market fit.
    During all the pivots, leadership at PurpleTalk helped us stay motivated and focused. As a company, we have a never say die attitude, which kept us working and innovating. Our eye to detail, design thinking and adherence to lean principles helped us with a smooth transition during these pivots. We kept going, won various awards for the best product and design during this wonderful journey. This could only happen because, we were receptive to feedback from customers, sales and supports teams. We kept our eyes and ears open for feedback. Today, Nukkad Shops is growing at a rate of 40% Month on month basis, has good revenue and moving towards a break even over next few months.

    As a person, I believe I'm quite an improved version of myself than what I was 8 years ago (Yes, it’s been eight years with PurpleTalk and the bond is getting stronger each day). The company has given enough learning opportunities, a solid platform for self-growth and I can’t ask for more. This is not just my journey, I see a lot of other similar success stories around me. This is the kind of culture PurpleTalk has built. I'm proud that i’m part of it and carrying it forward at Nukkad Shops.

    Cons

    I feel there are still few things we can always do better. We can all improve our communication a bit more, we can all estimate things a bit better, plan a bit better. But this is all part of being part of a very energetic, young and fast paced journey, that is PurpleTalk. We all are hungry for growth and I'm sure, we will do a lot better in coming days.

    Advice to Management

    The company has been doing a lot of path breaking work. It’s a hub for innovation, self learning and growth, however, company needs to do a lot better job publicising it.

    Amazing exposure to new and emerging technology

    Cons

    Parking needs to be addressed first. Why should someone have a reserved parking when it's an open office.

    Advice to Management

    Hikes needs to be given on time can't postpone it by 3 months. Be more diligent about it. People have commitments. Take time out of your busy foreign trips.

    Pros

    the company works on some amazing projects which makes for a great learning ground for tech workforce

    Cons

    The CEO is single handedly ruining the company. The entire top management is completely powerless and everything happens at the whims of the CEO, which is never backed by data or logic. He has a huge ego and he thinks he understands everything under the Sun, though I have never seen him delivering any productive output / decision on anything.

    The CEO has very effectively and politically fired / moved /incapacitated most of the senior old timers in the company. He wants only "Yes Mans" to be around him.

    They talk about "open culture" - but you say something openly that is not in line with the CEO's expectation, he will take it personally and ensure you are screwed step by step.

    There is necessarily no real management, no data / logic based decision - absolutely zero respect for employees and their skills and experience - there is just one thing that matters - whatever the CEO "THINKS" is right.

    Lying through their nose - yes, again under the CEO's leadership and direction, the sales and marketing team are lying all the time. I understand all the sales & marketing team exaggerates a bit but this guys LIE. They use all big brand names and if they have done the smallest piece of work for that brand, they go out and say as if they have built the entire company. This is done everyday for every big brand and it is the CEO that does the narrative. They sometimes even showcase concepts they thought about and claim them to be projects they have delivered.

    Advice to Management

    hah! no use, the CEO never listens and the other in management can't do anything without the CEO's permission
