    Pros

    - Professional growth booster, especially if you are a fresh grad. Your manager (if you get a good one) will nurture you to grow. There is also a possibility for internal mobility should you have any interest to learn new skills in another team - Competitive environment, you are pushed (positively) to do your best every day - Collaborative stakeholder, no corporate drama (at least in my point of view in the marketing team). Everyone in the company wants every project to be successful. So, you will most likely get helped if you ask - The starter benefit package is quite complete for a startup (health insurance, travel benefit, lunch, snacks, etc). Trust me, the free lunch and always-ready-snacks is a big personal expense cut!

    Cons

    - As a high growth start-up company or they called 'started-up' in the onboarding, please expect constant changes. If you are not comfortable with dynamic expectations in your projects, this company is not suitable for you - Your basic salary might be higher than your fresh grad peers in other companies, but even if you are lucky to have a good manager who provides a clear career path, do not expect a big bonus or increment in your performance review - Not really a con, but if you are planning to apply, please expect a long and high competitive recruitment process. Prepare for many analytical case studies (even in your phone interview), problem-solving, and specific tests for each position. In my case, it takes months (four to be exact) until I get an offering letter

    Advice to Management

    Please relook your bonus and increment scheme. Looking at macroeconomic, I know we should expect most startups in Indonesia to do efficiency due to incoming or rather-ongoing recession and shifting on investors' focus caused from We Work scandal, but if you keep your scheme this low, your best hires (and possibly potential ones) will be more likely to move to a more stable company

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

    Pros

    You will love the company if you like politics, Talking, self-praising, presenting other's work will get you the promotion. Decent work-life balance Free trip to Jakarta anytime

    Cons

    Egoistic, self-promoting managers There are no good leaders. Promotion oriented projects, but they won't solve the actual user's problems.

    Advice to Management

    Close Bangalore office and have just the Jakarta office is more productive for the headquarters.

    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    - A cordial team culture & company culture. - Decent tech. - People are eager to help & support each other. - Management and leads are approachable. - Compensation is not the best but decent. - Free lunch every day. - Buffet lunches for public holidays. - Flexible work schedule, depending on your team.

    Cons

    - Sometimes a language barrier exists with HQ, but situation is improving. - Some people tend to be very nice and polite to the point that they do not voice out their opinions or objections during meetings. May result in some misunderstanding or problems down the road. - Lacklustre benefits in healthcare and leave entitlement. - A rudimentary performance review process that uses spreadsheets.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more benefits to reward employees for growing Traveloka. Otherwise, it will be hard to compete with other tech companies in Singapore for talent.
