    I have been working at Ola full-time

    Pros

    - Interesting problems to solve - good work life balance - Good people to work with. - Some team members are very smart. _- Good to start career here

    Cons

    -Extremely poor work distribution(Lead Data Science doing work of a junior data scientist) - Hikes are minimal(Good hike only for people in terms with the management). Negotiate a very high salary when you join. -Importance given to "foreign" degrees and Phd, though the productivity by Phds in the team has been 0. -Senior management involved in politics and showing poor projects as working great -Hiring one of... poorest you just need to impress one guy rest of the interviews even if you don't know anything you will be hired. - Top leadership interested in improving their own brand value to get the next job. No contribution to the company.
