Majority of the engineers in flipkart are hindi speaking people. Some of the teams use hindi as communication language in team meetings, tech sessions or in any other work related discussions. It affects some people who doesn't understand Hindi. But the management doesn't seem to be bothered about that.

Dislikes

If you are not from IITs, NITs or IIITs you may receive less salary. There's a huge difference in payband for students from niche colleges and from local colleges. Both do the same work but students from niche colleges receive comparatively a much higher salary.

new challenging work. working on new technology. Great many things to learn.

Dislikes

Literally no work-life balance! and by that I mean often working weekends and no compensation against it. Going an extra '10' miles is daily exhausting job. Probably this company should be a stepping stone to a better opportunity.
