Work life balance is poor Quality of work is poor. 95% of projects have maintenance & migration work hence no learning. Designation is misleading. Post 2022 the quality of workforce hired is from service based companies even at high levels thus bringing with them service based company culture. Increments & promotions doesn't depend on work. VISA before 2023 & after 2023 is totally different.

I apprectaite them for giving me my first job right during my graduation. The pay was pretty good and it was unexpected. The company focused on employee development. There were frequent team outings and rewards given for good performance. I felt valuable while working with byjus. Few managers who had good experience outside byjus were very supportive and acknowledged harkwork and efforts.

Dislikes

Tough the pay was very good but the work-life balance was negligible. Even if you had 30 casual leaves available , 15 sick leaves. U had to email manager well in advance for your sick leaves also. How on earth can a person predict when he or she is gonna fell sick? Plus sometimes it was like working for no heart person. There was zero human nature seen in managers who had started career in byjus and were working for the company for quite a lot time. Ultimately it's because of those careless and inhuman Managers that the company is losing everything.

Great company culture and work life balance, get to work on latest technologies, continuous encouragement on innovation and using latest technologies in market, great job security (they don't ever fire anyone, even non performing ones), great people all over the world with helping attitude, less politics compared to other companies and decent salary and benefits. Hybrid mode of working.

Dislikes

Less salary compared to other product based companies. Promotions are hard to come by, it takes 7 to 10 years to get promoted to each next level and most people leave before that. Even if you perform consistently excellent, you won't get a promotion for at least 7 years, so very less opportunities to grow. Increment are decent but fixed at 9% to 12% rate. And it's difficult to change your division or even project if you get bored of working on same project year after year. They only move you to different project if there is an urgent business demand in that. IJPs are for namesake as your manager would never approve your movement (unless you are a non-performer and manager doesn't want you in his/her team).
