Current Employee - Seller Support Associate in Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Good salary for a fresher, better than current market standards. Dress Code: Wear something

-The job we do at amazon is amazing. Free transport(being the only reason for retention)
-data driven culture (can be manipulated by the management)
-high growth possibility (If you have the right people to back you)
-Recent management has a pathetic approach towards employees, otherwise all good

Cons

Every passing day a new con would arise. The list might be too lengthy

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please change your approach. Treat us like fellow employees, not slaves.

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

    Pros

    - You get a good salary while joining
    - You got to work on high scalable and smart systems
    - Good blend of technologies and automated systems.

    Cons

    - No work life balance at all, upper management expects you to work on weekends
    - On-call is terrible (a 24x7 support engineer with a pager to clean the crap)
    - Even though the notice period is 1 month, managers will try to delay and hold you, almost mentally harass you to serve for around 2 months (Myself has seen at least 4 such cases with different teams). I don't understand whether AMZN gives special training to managers to torture their employees.
    - Expect promotion once in 4 yrs (6 yrs for some ppl), unless you are good in hypocrisy and politics. There will always a carrot to lure you till you finally give up and leave the company. Forget about awarding, you will figure out that the job is not even rewarding.
    - Hikes are not impressive unless you get some good amount of stocks.
    - One lesson: A customer centric company is rarely employee friendly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Appreciate work done by employees
    - Respect employee's personal commitments
