    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Literally no pros that I can think of. You get paid on time. Is that a pro?

    Cons

    Absolutely diabolical company. They work their employees to the bone. There is no structure. They want to centralise everything in India and have no staff in the UK. They make staff in India work 6 days a week. If that doesn't show you the ethos of the company then nothing will. Avoid this company like the plague. If you accept a job here you will regret it within weeks I can promise you that.

    Pros

    Salary was just about ok

    Cons

    Management won’t listen, everything driven by numbers with appallingly slow approvals processes. Outdated technology. No consideration of opportunity cost. Inexperienced Senior management don’t care about staff or drivers. Dishonest. Miserable work culture.
