    Current Employee - Content Editor in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good and there are lots of opportunities for career development. Casual work environment.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is nonexistent. Workload is constantly ratcheted up without adequate support. Salaries are just average. Vast, bureaucratic organization includes a lot of careerists acting in nobody's interest but their own - lots of defending turf.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a reason so many Amazon employees burn out after two or three years. Workload demands are simply not realistic. I'm tired of losing co-workers to places like Microsoft, where they can make just as much money and have evenings and weekends to themselves.

    Current Employee - Operations

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    - Start up environment
    - Great autonomy
    - Data driven culture
    - High growth possibilities
    - Management willing to let you experiment and make mistakes

    Cons

    - Real Amazon culture is in US - which is Awesome. Indian environment often sees fake manifestations to apply the typical political grind under the cover of Amazon leadership principles.
    - Yes - your manager can play a big role in your ratings; despite the peer feedback
    - Bad appraisal process in general
    - Be prepared to stick in the salary range your got with offer for some time. Monetary growth is puny and promotions need blood and sweat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As I said above - We should be cognizant if the hired leaders can true carry the great Amazon culture baton successfully.
    Please make salary increments practically acceptable.
