    I worked at Wize Commerce (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good engineering team had fun and challenging projects to work on.

    Cons

    Business model was not viable for the long term and once seo died down it hurt the company really bad and the management tried a bunch of things (but spent way too much money) and all the efforts failed.

    I worked at Wize Commerce full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits at Nextag/Wize Commcerce aren't exceptional, but in general, it wasn't a terrible place to work. I personally liked my manager (although he was somewhat ineffective and probably was promoted to a high-level position prematurely), and my team was for the most part dedicated to a good product and intelligent. Other departments were staffed by people I also enjoyed seeing on a daily basis, and HR made a very strong effort to grow morale in an authentic manner.

    Cons

    There is a lot of over-leveling at this company; far too many VPs and people in senior roles who are not qualified to hold them. There is also a large amount of empire-building which is not discouraged; for example, the platform team routinely would block all front-end development without any meaningful backlash. Most of the development has been off-shored to India, and while the India team is very capable, the communication between them and the US team is not as rigorous as it should be.

    From a managerial perspective, the messaging from and skills around the management teams here is not impressive. Any efforts to improve people who are considered "key" are often squashed in order to keep them from leaving. Repeated large layoffs have hurt morale. Finally, the company direction is unclear, since the market surrounding CSEs has fallen away so sharply.

    Technology stack, work life balance.You will learn a lot in short amount of time. Also the gurgaon campus is next to DLF cyberhub which is one of the most happening places in the town.

    Cons

    No mentoring, hidden decisions, career path is not visible.

    Advice to Management

    Think of a career path for the employees along with appropriate mentoring.
