I have been working at upGrad full-time for less than a year
I have been working with the company for less than one year and the company was doing really good. We had proper working hours and professional and personal life. There was a good balance. We got our... weekly offs as well. The idealization was to create a healthy revenue driven company by providing a promising future to our learners. The counselors were counselors and nobody had sales mindset. The targets were overachieved and with every quarter we were growing.
Notice I mentioned everything above in the past tense. Now lets come to the reality. UpGrad hired ARJUN MOHAN from byjus whose name in byjus was like the spoon that you never use at your home. This... particular guy comes with such a huge arrogance and rigidity to change things according to his mind set. Unfortunately, our founders and Co-founders are not able to see beyond him and his thoughts. The culture of the company is getting replicated as of byjus. Basically, we are working like a BPO and does not care about anything apart from saving ourselves from firing and micro management. Revenue has been converted into call time. Every counseling call has only one objective of selling now. The idea is really good, can help company in the shorter run but I thought this is a long running company and wants to create a change. DO NOT TAKE JOB HERE. As soon as you come, you'll everything behind. While I right this review, its the 6th week I'm working without an off and when asked for an off, i was denied in-spite completing my target.
Advice to Management
Please read this review and understand things from our perspective. Please keep a anonymous town hall so that we can come forward and share our thoughts. Everybody knows that as soon as I reveal my... name, Mr. Mohan will not be able to handle this criticism and will react by firing me on the grounds of moral conduct.
