    Pros

    #Great learning opportunities #Energetic & Dynamic work colleagues- often extremely smart #Nice office #Fast-paced

    Cons

    Some extremely ego-centric senior people managers, hugely male-dominated environment at the top with people often being rude & highly aggressive please have a forum where people can voice or talk about their managers and give feedback on a regular basis- without fear that their managers might fire them anyday..

    Pros

    There are SOME great employees here who are extremely talented and hard working. Employees in general are all extremely hard working and passionate

    Cons

    Do not trust C level employees of the company. They are artists at manipulation and short term gain. Having worked for many companies over 12years this company has the most toxic working environment and most short sighted vision I've come across. The company will work you to the bone and as soon as you show any sign of falling below 120% for a second you will be seen as a weakness with a view for you to leave.This business mentality is a ruthless one so make sure you get the appropriate compensation should you want to work for them. I think this will change in 1 to 2yrs once the rocket internet culture and hitmen squad have washed away while Lazada brings in its own identity. Until then I'd stay clear.

    Pros

    Management is aware of the abysmal Glasdoor ratings: the new CEO himself asked the whole company in a town hall to come leave positive reviews. We may overtake FoxConn anytime soon.

    Cons

    Management solution for bad Glasdoor reviews is to blame disgruntled employees for them and ask the happy campers to come here and praise the new administration. Take all positive comments from Aug 27 onwards with a pinch of salt.

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

    Pros

    Good and smart people in local (SG) office. Many problems and challenges to solve, never boring. Good food during campaigns Decent promotions for lower echelons recently. Do see local CEO making effort to improve employee satisfaction. Alot of opportunities for growth if you work hard. Things happening every quarter to attempt to solve the problems in the country.

    Cons

    Bad work life balance, especially during campaigns. KPIs supersede everything to the point of ridiculousness; you are compared against your teammates, other countries teams, and KPIs can be things that are always unattainable. Administration work is painful, requiring similar (yet different) updates of multiple slides, etc to local team, regional team and CEO. Ultimate waste of time. Many of the systems in-house replaced by Chinese products that are annoying and inferior. Plans and projects keep changing ; no clear direction from the A team often times. Regional and local direction forever misaligned. Products rolled out by tech teams always incomplete and not tailored for local context ; waste of time and ineffective + causes administrative pain. Everything is sacrificed for GMV, with campaigns far too close resulting in projects being delayed in between. Too many middle management and too little people at the bottom that allows for things to move.

    Pros

    - Nice pantry with an amazing view - Great additional benefits (gym, medical, optical) - Colleagues are nice and everyone is generally friendly and kind

    Cons

    - Work-life balance (I wouldn't consider this as a big no-no, but you'll have time away from work but at the same time, because you're constantly on your phone, it might be hard to separate work from your personal time) - Career progression is rather vague (I would say it's dependent on the department)
