    #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..

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

    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.

    I worked at Lazada full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1. Office has a nice view and pantry is well stocked with drinks, snacks and fruits. 2. Fast paced work environment in an exciting e-commerce space. 3. Opportunity to learn from some really smart people from Alibaba. 4. Technology stack is world class and years ahead of others. 5. Many re-organisations to keep things fresh! (This might be a con for some)

    Cons

    1. Top heavy with more VPs and managers than ground level working staff leading to many meetings, decks, proposals but nobody left to execute. 2. Too many inexperienced managers with inflated titles leading teams just because they joined back in the early days. 3. Culture is toxic. Toxic but high performing employees are not fired but promoted. Backstabbing to take over projects or to claim credit is common. 4. If you do not speak mandarin, you are disadvantaged as most high level decisions are make in mandarin for efficiency. 5. Decisions will be stuck indefinitely unless you know someone from the Alibaba inner circle (which makes up most of the product and technology teams). 6. No innovation in the product as most features are copied from Tmall/Taobao and not localised to the SEA market.
