    I have been working at Hike full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Hike as a company is always moving towards something new to adapt and keep up with the ever changing market. I have been a part of a few organizational changes myself and yes, it can be a bit frustrating in the start. But if you embrace it and try to understand deeply then most of the time, it makes sense. If it doesn't then I most probably go and talk to someone about it - someone who is managing me or someone who is leading the team I am in. The stuff that is happening at the company, is quite different and new -- it will honestly take me time to change the way I think as well -- but I am beginning to see how it can help hike as a company move forward quickly while reducing the risks. Eventually if a change works on an organization level then it will start becoming a part of the culture. Culture and flexibility to work are the only things that makes Hike stand out among the rest ---- other good stuff and perks are all second.

    Cons

    If we can nail prioritization and getting awesome talent inside the company quickly, then this company has a chance of becoming the best.

    Pros

    Ownership, Flexible Timings, Open and Dynamic Culture, Open to high working speeds.

    Cons

    It can be a challenge to strike a perfect work life balance, but it all depends upon how good you are at time management. The biggest challenge that you might face working at Hike is the continuous and sudden focus change. Meeting expectations and nailing targets can become really hard sometimes.
