    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for 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.

    Chaotic culture. Panic and burn out yourself.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    - Good Salary. Thats all. But you need to sacrifice many other things on the cost of that.

    Cons

    - I wonder how so many people have given such a good rating. Yes, if work is the only thing in your life, this may be the place for you.
    - Quality of work is extremely bad. Its all about coordinating with other teams and getting things done. You will hardly get to use your creativity.
    - There is panic and chaos all around. No office culture. People shouting, listening music on high volumes.
    - Situation at Chennai is more bad. Very bad facilities. Non-ethical place.
    - People just come here for a brand name and start contemplating for a change within few months.
    - Freshers may still sustain. But extremely bad for people who have come from a company with decent work culture.
    - Have a long list of negatives. But I hope this much should be enough for prospective employees to take a decision.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazon is growing very rapidly. But the culture is not sustainable in a long term. Needs a big change.
