Worst work life balance

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Hyderābād (India)

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

ProsGood place to start your career right after college, Good job profile, smart co-workers.

ConsToo much politics, overwhelming work, no work life balance, extra burden of oncall which doesn't count into your weekly accomplish task, its like a side job that you have to take care without delaying your other tasks and projects.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to exercise better judgement while allocation projects and define precise deadline since a person can work at max 12 hours in a day daily.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
