    Thank you for your review however I don't believe you have the right company. We do not have Database Administrator roles nor do we exist in New Delhi. Thank you - Ginger Camilleri, Associate Director, Human Resources

    Current Employee - Software Engineer 

    I have been working at HelloWorld full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexibility and laid-back atmosphere. Decent benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Lots of tech-debt on many platforms. Although flexible, work-life balance is a struggle here. Not really focused on professional development. Lots of office politics and favoritism. Since being acquired by Merkle and moving to Southfield the overall atmosphere and culture has eroded.
