Horrible to say the least

They'll hire you on a contact, for 6 months, one year, 2 year, etc but with no job security, no employment benefits, they force you to work on Sundays even. They intentionally give us tight deadlines and squeeze in 15 hours of work in 9 hours. On top of that they keep meetings to ensure that our deliveries are delayed and they'll have an excuse to reprimand us. Furthermore, you are only a machine here nothing more. No matter your past performance, if you even say that you can't work on Sundays you risk loosing your job. Everyday 30-50 people leave this company owing to its toxic work culture. Your family comes secondary. Even if your family is sick, you need to leave them alone so that you can finish your over the top deliverables. So, if you have a family and a kid, please know that they'll be secondary to you. Their apathy and sadistic behaviour doesn't end there. The recently hired leaders at upgrad aim to throw around employees from team to team. Also your job role chanes at upgrad but not in a positive way. Getting into upgrad ruins careers. The office is open on diwali Dusshera Christmas and they force you to work on August 15 and January 26th as well.

Management has turned it into byjus

Management has turned it into byjus. after the recent inclusion of certain people, the organisation has turned into byju's. They fail to understand that we are catering to two different target groups.

Rate your recent company

Share your experience to help others

Uncertainty in every step.

In profession , little attire and ethics should follow . Here this two already in imbalance state. Famous and Brand are desire for every a organization and a person but it is not meant others are looser. Experienced earn for knowledge as well as money but you are not giving proper role and money actual vs desired totally difference.

9 hours work day with 1 hour break, great atmosphere with young & energetic crowd, career advancement is slow depending on which team you are working for. The founders are really down to earth and approachable, that is the best thing about working at upGrad.

An Egg that shines from outside but is badly rotten from inside

The company has a great idea. The only area where they went wrong is at their managerial level. Recruiting wasteful people that just aim at pestering through various methods, bringing in worst rules that just hampers one's productivity is what they have done. Worst managers is the main reason for one person to not enroll in this institute.

A great 2 yrs of my life

I joined UpGrad as a fresher and moved into couple of teams during the 2 yrs journey. The work culture is great, people are awesome and the mission really drove me to work each day.

No Job security. Poor management. Favoritism

1. The management is in the hands of inefficient employees. 2. Lack of communication and coordination. 3. Internal politics 4. Favoritism 5. HR should listen to the employee before he takes any decisions.
