      Cons

      A few toxic individuals. Too many useless meetings and conflicts between teams for such a young start up.

      Build a better culture.

      No opinion of CEO

      I have been working at Reflektion full-time (More than a year)

      Pros

      Technologies used in the company for certain products is pretty advanced. Eg kafka.

      Lot of US based engineers are from good universities.

      Free lunch.

      Well designed apis.

      Cons

      No transperancy at all.

      Bad and incapable management specially at QA.
      Rigid work timings. Work load is unbelivable and 70% manual tests. Main products like "similar items", "search" demand manual testing.

      Very less learning oppurtunities for QA.

      No onsite oppurtunities.

      Shares will not be given to you despite promises during offer.

      If you work hard however you can understand some really cool products like recommendation search etc.

      Advice to Management

      Needs improvement
