    Advice - Blind is about a place you would get genuine answers to this question. Most people who are happy won't have time looking for posts and replying to this. You have a huge selection bias. Trust your instincts, search contacts you can trust through LinkedIn etc., talk to hiring manager and make your own decision.

    • I agree with him. I was pretty shocked that so many people think grab has bad culture/work/quality. Won't say it is amazing, there definitely is room for improvement. The management /leadership has not been able to earn the kind of loyalty fb/google has. But they are trying.
      I would say atleast 50% of the teams are working on interesting projects.

      No one said the projects weren’t interesting. The comments are crap work-life balance, crap hours, crap pay and crap tech stack. But if interesting problems are all you care about, have fun.

      @ssatay I agree with work-life balance problem. But tell me more about "crap tech stack". How its 'crap'? Whats better tech you are seeing in other company?

      Agreed. I don't put judgment on the subjective things but I think Grab tech stack is nowhere from crap. In many ways, it's better than a lot of the companies.

    Ex-Grabber here. Won't recommend. Many friends I know from Amazon/MSFT joined then left. Good prospects but the engineering quality from the HQ will make you want to pull your hair out.

    Dude, please don’t leave Stripe for Grab. It’s not a valley company, not even a bit. Ex-Uber employee here.

    Do you like working nights? If you look around grab office do you feel like you fit in? You will need to have meetings with Singapore in the night and there isn’t much diversity in the office.

      By working nights, do you mean 70+ hours a week? Or just meetings with Singapore?
