Approves of CEO

I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Brilliant colleagues, flexibility, robust development environment

Cons

For freshers, too many dependencies on other people/teams and nobody has got time to resolve them. You gotta fend for yourself, which can be considered as a pro in itself.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Smart people, you will be surprised the time and effort the company invests in finding people - Decent pay, average of the industry set of competitors, could be better - Work smart, hard and long. As Jeff says, 2 of the 3 won't work :-) - Strong sense of accomplishment when work is done

    Cons

    - Too exhausting at times - Management may not be transparent always - Some managers would qualify politicians (really). Stay away from them and just exchange smiles, nothing more - Recognition. There are few people waiting to shoot using your hardworking. Wonder how they got hired!

    Advice to Management

    Don't lose the great people. Figure out how to really use peer feedback to weed out the political ones and your will have the best place to work in Bangalore. You are close already.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working at a well-known company always seeking to be number one. Good salaries and stock benefits. Awesome talent everywhere

    Cons

    Customer obsession never applies to employees. The concept of frugality really means being cheap, doing everything possible to shave a buck or two with employee benefits and merchant support. Most of all, though, is the obsession towards providing data to explain your performance; too much time is wasted in internal proceses and reporting...don't we have tools for that?

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to your employees and less time scrutinizing their work. Everyone works their nuts off and a lot of talent is burned or lost by basing all HR decisions on cold numbers
