    Pros

    Great Culture Awesome People Openness up to grass-root level Nice office with a fully loaded pantry

    Cons

    HR's and Marketing team show them as the face of Bangalore but the truth is there are large workhorses working tirelessly to add value to the organization in all business segments who are not counted or noticed. No Clear HR policies No Gym and a room cant be a Gym in Bangalore.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the same culture. All are great :) Add people from all segments to represent Bangalore, not just the HRs and Marketing team. To say it from our culture "Play as a Team"

    Pros

    Very good looking, you can fool ill informed people else where that you work in for a good company that promote nice value. An interesting example of today culture of the industry at large, worth a test.

    Cons

    You'll pay for the bad foods, the lazy and incompetent culture and all the lies in working for this company. By the time you quit, you might no longer feel like yourself. You might not event want to stay in the industry anymore. Not just because the technical illiteracy you saw but the lowest standard of morality in such a place and how it is pictured on the news.

    Advice to Management

    Do some work and be honest. All lies eventually due. What you you think the parasites lives on ?

    I have been working at Atlassian full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lot of parties and celebrations. 6 hour, 4 day work week. Monday is supposed to be work from home but hardly anyone works. Your manager can not ask you to complete any work on time, literally no deadlines are followed

    Cons

    Bengaluru site is a support site and no real work happens here. Everything is dictated by management from Sydney or Mountain View. Its ok for administrative and clerical staff but not recommended for good engineers, designers and product folks. Company talks a lot about values and culture because there are serious problems in their values.

    Advice to Management

    India Management should take ownership of site problems and show some spine to solve issues as well as drive innovation and delivery.

    Pros

    Lots of perks like free breakfast, lunch, drinks, t-shirts. Opportunity to work with very smart people which collaborate nicely most times. There is some budget for personal growth as well upon manager approval. Developers are empowered to innovate and deliver new features/ideas.

    Cons

    Very competitive environment and hard to grow.
