Company culture. It’s a feeling, not something you can easily quantify. It’s imperative for companies to have a profitable business, but they also need to develop a strong and balanced organisational culture. They say that positive workplace culture is a prerequisite to mental peace and happiness. Today, we’re going to analyse how true that is.
Let’s try to understand the importance of great workplace culture and how we can measure an organisation’s culture.
To understand startup culture, there is one other strategy we would like to test. In order to tap into BYJU’S work culture, we decided to speak to some ex-BYJUites. We got an insight into the vibe of the organisation, what they cherished most about their time here, and how BYJU’S prepped them for the future. Read on to discover their side of the story.

“BYJU’S is a symbol of warmth and inclusivity. The leaders I worked with, were friendly, approachable, and humble, in spite of their senior designations. I was given ample opportunities to grow in my role and also to become a better person. It’s been a privilege to work with a wonderful group of people, all of whom treated me with respect, and helped me in every way possible.
The culture at BYJU’S was such that I got a lot of exposure to experiences that helped in uncovering my strengths. I got to lead a team for the first time, helped set up operations for a whole new process, and even transitioned to an IC role within the Strategy and Planning team. I am glad to have been a part of a fast-paced environment that taught me how to adapt and excel.
I will forever be grateful to Kishor, Taruun, RM Divya, and Sam, under whom I worked in various capacities, and who have become my trusted mentors for life. I deeply appreciate their invaluable guidance and support that has been instrumental in shaping my professional path.”

“BYJU’S was the second organisation of my career. I was pleasantly surprised to see a work environment so enthusiastic and lively. It almost felt like I was back in college, where I did projects with my seniors! BYJU’s gave me a platform to grow as an individual and explore my passion.
I was given the freedom to learn through trial and error; people came first, not hierarchy and protocols. If you’re looking for the best place to start your career, this is it.
BYJU’S has helped me define “work”. From a clueless fresher in Edtech to a Senior Manager at my current organisation, managing 50+ employees from different nationalities, it’s all thanks to what I learnt at BYJU’S. We ate, breathed, and slept data, making us data-driven and agile.
BYJU’S has acted as a launch pad for my career. I am beyond grateful for all the support I have received over the years. I went from answering ‘What is BYJU’S’ to hearing people say, ‘Oh wow, you work with BYJU’S!’. It’s an honour to have been a part of BYJU’S illustrious journey.”

“When I look back on my time at BYJU’S, the one emotion that stands out is passion. Our efforts were always recognised, appreciated, and rewarded multifold. Zeal was our driving force. I was witness to the building of dreams, brick by brick, and it was nothing short of magic.
Nothing is beyond your reach if you are focused. I never expected to achieve everything that I did, but BYJU’S made it all possible by giving me the right opportunities, even as a fresher. As I left the organisation, I realised that the finer things that I learnt on the job will add value to my profile as a candidate for my next stint.”
Now that you’ve heard from BYJU’S ex-employees, you might get an idea of the importance of healthy company culture. If people who are no longer working with your organisation are organically saying positive things about its culture, you must be doing something right.
We hope, no matter where you work, you have a great atmosphere in the office. Do let us know of your experiences, via the comments section below.
