Pros

It was a friendly place to work. They were open to feedback most of the times. The work culture was good.

Cons

There was not much growth prospect,after a year or two you will still be stagnating in the same position.

Advice to Management

I was working for Retail business services dept in Amazon, so I would like to advice the management that they should try to nurture the people within the team rather than getting managers from outside all the time. The people those are in system for few years know more about the process than a new hire manager. It does not make sense to get a new manager every time there is a requirement from outside and than train him for months.

    Pros

    Good salary and flexible work time. A good workspace if you are interested in learning Amazon's production

    Cons

    Poor work environment and limited welfare. Because frugality is the key leadership in Amazon.

    Pros

    Minimal, Good brand on your CV.

    Cons

    Expectation to work all hours of the day - way beyond the norm of reasonable. People were expected to work evenings, weekends, whilst on holidays etc. I also agree with another review that mentioned about the rapid growth - whilst existing employees were expected to suck up the double or triple workload this created.
    I understand the values - but they took frugality to another level. I have never worked anywhere quite so shabby, it made me depressed walking into the office every day.

    Advice to Management

    Follow your own advice - you claim to be customer centric - what about thinking about the employees in that every now and then?
