I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Competitive salary, good work life balance, fast growth.

Cons

If you are working in hyderabad office you might not get to work on good projects. Also, there is no such thing as culture. Not much fun, no perks at all. Boring life at office.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It will help to be less frugal and make amazon a more fun place to be at. Creating great culture will take time.

    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager  in  Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Senior Product Manager in Bangalore (India)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Do good stuff and learn

    Cons

    Too much churn. General strategy is to keep doing all, and see what works.
    Very bad work life balance. Almost zero personal life.
    Poor accountability for senior management.
    Growth is poor. For same work hours, you can grow easily elsewhere. Hike are pitiable.
    Zero performance bonus culture. Zero stocks in most cycles (blaming the stock growth).
    Too many people quit because of health reasons, unable to cope up with unnecessary work pressures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the Cons above.
