    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Vancouver, BC (Canada)

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

    Pros

    High hiring standards mean you will be surrounded with smart people. Easy to transfer to other jobs inside the company. Good stepping stone as a means to reach nerdvana ( Google, Facebook, Apple ).

    Cons

    Excessive overtime without compensation. Difficult to schedule vacations. Poor scheduling of projects. Favouritism. Below average pay. Benefit plan is average. Promotions are difficult to get and the pay raise is very low. Expected to perform at new job level for a full year before promotion will be considered. Two years at Amazon is considered a very long time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An eye for an eye... in other words, make sure employees get just rewards for their efforts.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great tech company. Great people . Good leadership principles you imbibe if one is willing to.

    Cons

    No Perks apart from salary. Manager and Senior Manager level is not that supportive. Too Diplomatic for a tech company( I think its more in India ). Too much interference from them. On Call Support for 24/7 . Scrum is run by managers where it should be run by SDEs . No Work Life Balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being too bureaucratic and diplomatic . Give the scrum to SDEs and please understand that oncall should not be 24/7. We are not slaves!
