    I have been working at Hike full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Free Food Average Technology Stack Office Location

    Cons

    All positive reviews are fake, mistakenly I go through the review & joined the company. And that’s my biggest mistake to join hike. I don’t recommend this company especially for Software Engineers Role(Backend+Mobile) both. Zero Work-life balance, High-pressure environment for all experiences(0..10 Years) of Engineers. Unrealistic deadlines for developers. No Saturday & Sunday even no working hours. U have to work till 12 AM midnight normally. Hiring & Firing is normal here, so ur job is always insecure. Initially, I thought it’s an engineering company but u hardly got time to learn new things. If u r a Tech-oriented person with a dream to work for Google/Microsoft/Facebook etc than Never come to Hike. It's far away from ur expectations. It’s a complete a startup u ll always mess up with Hike work & High Working Pressure. Example:- To develop a big module u ll get 3 - 4 days. Ideally, it would take 8-10 days. So now u can imagine of work pressure. Moreover, they will count ur Sat & Sundays in ur work estimate. Tech stack is average & free food is the only positive thing I found here. Regular survey taken for company feedback (this is good) but they hardly take any action to improve.
