      Pros

      I have been with Zomato for many years now and have had nothing short of a wonderful experience! It's an extremely faced paced organization (definitely not for the faint of heart), but if you're looking for an organization that will push your boundaries and challenge your existing skill set, this may be the place for you! I have had the opportunity to work on various teams throughout my time at Zomato and have always felt the support of my colleagues and the organization as a whole. Zomato is made up of strong, passionate and dedicated individuals - for me, the most important ingredient (no pun intended) of any organization. I plan to be here for many years to come!

      Cons

      People often complain about 'work life balance'. I believe you should find a career/role that you are truly passionate about. Once you have found that, this concept of 'work life balance' really loses importance. That doesn't mean it isn't important to disconnect and recharge your batteries. As human beings, this is extremely important in all aspects of our lives. However, I don't think the solution is to 'work' in a role where you merely clock in/clock out each day. When you're truly passionate about what you do (and who you do it with), it is impossible to separate the two.

      Used to be great, now...not so much

      Pros

      I had the chance to work with some incredibly kind and intelligent people. I wasn't micromanaged much as long as I was meeting targets. Fun office parties every now and then. The atmosphere used to allow you to get a lot of experience in different areas really quickly but that isn't much the case anymore. Depending on the team you worked with, you could have absolutely amazing mentors.

      Cons

      The cons far outweighed the pros: - Office became hyperpolitical, where you would get passed up for promotions or better projects if you weren't a brown noser. - The work became routine and boring. Even if you expressed interest in doing something else and you were capable of doing that, getting a chance of reassignment largely falls on who you know. - There is 0 work life balance. You are expected to eat, breath and sleep Zomato. There was a lot of down putting if you chose to take vacation time. Even taking a weekend off was highly frowned upon. There were plenty of people who would end up working on Sundays as well. - For being in an environment where you're realistically working 60hrs plus, your salary rarely matches that. - Transparency is lackluster, and communication between higher management and the rest of the employees winds up mainly relying on who you know. - Struggling business model: Zomato began as an online ad space and developed their transactions based model later. While that is helping bring in revenue, it isn't exactly king as people make it seem. The HSBC report that downgraded Zomato recently brought up fair points and honestly aligned the company better in a sense of how valuable it was. - There is absolutely zero organization, with things changing on the whim of higher ups. Often it felt more like it was being run by a bunch of capricious children being given unlimited funds without any hold on them.

      Pros

      Great people to work with, awesome pay and cool company events. Flexible work/life balance and you actually enjoy coming to work each day.

      Cons

      Laid off without notice. Senior management is either hard to reach or doesn't know anything when asking specific organizational questions. Only some folks in upper management nice and helpful. They're still hiring across the globe, yet felt the US offices needed to be shut down after 4-5 months of being here.
