There is campus recruitment at college on Monday. I want to find out about the work culture of the company for which I have applied. I want to know if they have proper work life balance or not as it is important to me. It's not very famous company and has about 100 employees. The online reviews on sites like glassdoor are very mixed and inconclusive. I have an acquaintance who is working there for last 2 years and has great things to say about the company but his review maybe biased about it.
Considering it's a one day process and if I clear the personal interview I would have to accept the job and I will be out of the placement assistance process from the college how can I make sure that company has good work culture and doesn't ask employees to do over time without extra pay. Since most software companies in India atleast the startups don't have good work life balance I am skeptical about this company as well.
I know I can ask about it during the interview but no company is going to talk negative about them.
