    Cons

    Nothing negative to write about. But recruitment process is little slow(same like every other mnc). You will have to wait very long to get the interview result and offer letter in hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are doing awesome. Keep up the god work. Many ecommerce companies are trying to beat you. But as a matter of fact, nothing can beat amazon.

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

    Pros

    Leaders are obsessed about long term view point. Employees have tremendous ownership and function pretty much independently. Flat hierarchy - therefore access to folks - both upstream and downstream is easy. Company likes to experiment and failure is appreciated as a great learning platform.

    Cons

    High ownership at times make work seem transactional.
