Company with great principles though much of the great work has already been done

Software Development Engineer I (Former Employee) Bangalore (India)

Pros1. Great leadership.
2. Awesome principles and strategy
3. Technical stack is the best in the market and top notch engineers
4. Love for technology and costumer obsession.

Cons1. Frugal strategy. Very low perks to employees compared to all the other top technical companies
2. The technical stack is already been designed and very stable. This reduces the learning opportunities available in other small technical firms.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to create more learning opportunity and a little low stress on deliverables

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
