Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Chennai (India)

Pros

Smart peers,
Good pay,
Freedom and ownership.
Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

Cons

Work-life balance
No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )

Recommends
Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

    Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner

    Pros

    If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
    Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
    Less company politics than most companies

    Cons

    Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
    The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
    You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
    Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
    Share door desks with others, no personal space
    Don't do enough with community service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
    Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes
