Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

- Smart people, you will be surprised the time and effort the company invests in finding people
- Decent pay, average of the industry set of competitors, could be better
- Work smart, hard and long. As Jeff says, 2 of the 3 won't work :-)
- Strong sense of accomplishment when work is done

Cons

- Too exhausting at times
- Management may not be transparent always
- Some managers would qualify politicians (really). Stay away from them and just exchange smiles, nothing more
- Recognition. There are few people waiting to shoot using your hardworking. Wonder how they got hired!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose the great people. Figure out how to really use peer feedback to weed out the political ones and your will have the best place to work in Bangalore. You are close already.

    No desire to keep the best of the best. In with the old, in with the new (cheaper) employees.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern in Hyderābād (India)

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive salary, good work life balance, fast growth.

    Cons

    If you are working in hyderabad office you might not get to work on good projects. Also, there is no such thing as culture. Not much fun, no perks at all. Boring life at office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It will help to be less frugal and make amazon a more fun place to be at. Creating great culture will take time.
