Learning is good. No appreciation.
1. Company has Feedback based culture, and it's mostly used for negative feedbacks rather than appreciations.2. Perks are not there, salary is low as compared to the work you do. 3. Learning is very very good. Even if you don't get any meaningful projects, you get to know so many kind of systems, how they are designed.

Challenging
What I liked most about the job is that you get the freedom to put your software skills to good use. The hardest part is that time is the most scarce resource, and needs to be used intelligently to deliver results and push your ideas through while working with others. At the same time you need to maintain a reasonable work-life balance. The workplace interaction between peers is one of respect for each other, where the best idea wins, and fittest software survives. Between manager and engineer, the emphasis is on delivering results while at the same time raising the bar. Like most corporate cultures, there is some level of hypocrisy that one has to live with. The important thing is to retain your values by not co-opting into it. The compensation is generous, and I have no complaints. Most of the day's work is focused on moving the needle on your sprint tasks. Code reviews, scrum meetings, mentoring, design reviews, keeping abreast of latest technologies, dev-ops tasks and on-call work have all to be squeezed in. All the while, one has to be shrewd and keep promotion to the next level in mind, in everything one does. This can be a source of dissonance, as what is best for the Company/team may not match what is in your best interest.

Fast and Productive work culture
You get to own and execute end-to-end your project. You get to learn a lot in a short time. Its very hard to find work-life balance. The compensation is very good compared to market average but there is no other benefits that many product companies provide like free food, free coupons as recognition, etc.
