Amazon would be a great company to work for without cheap politics at work

-Smart people to work with

Cons

-Bad management with too many politics
-highly difficult to move up the ladder in India unless you are able to lick your bosses ass,
-Hopeless HR. HR and the manager together prevent people from switching teams( though the Amazon culture encourages one to gain diversified experience)
-cheap behavior towards females by some in the senior management level

    Pros

    Lot to learn. Great culture and startup like work environment along with benefits of a big company.

    Cons

    Too hectic and unrealistic expectations. Life will be stressful at times. In fact, I started gaining weight and losing hair after joining Amazon! Initiatives are mostly driven by business needs. Compromises are made at technical values to cater business needs. Work Hard, Harder and probably make history if you are lucky. No fun!

    Advice to Management

    Don't rush on things. Let's take things slowly and steadily.

    Pros

    Get to work with some real smart and focused people that you can learn from. Great opportunity if you work hard. Opportunity to travel if you work hard and are in a role where travel may be needed. Proud to work for such an innovative company.

    Cons

    Too political and management play favourites. If you are "in" with the "in crowd" then you will be looked after. Senior management don't know what is happening in the front line, they think they do but are too far away from what people think. Year over year AIS and/or Pulse survey bring up the same failings but work done to fix issues is never fully implemented, this becomes frustrating and demoralising. Lack of or insufficient training in all roles I was invovled in.

    Advice to Management

    Reach out to the leads and managers if you are looking to improve the CSA experience, engage them fully throughout processes and any change. Communicate everything better and be more transparent. Do not tolerate favouritism and cliques.
