Former Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer in Bangalore (India)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

1) Some good working colleagues in teams.
2) Good exposure to different aspects of technology.

Cons

1) Really bad care for employees. Frugality is a main part of company's culture. But HR considers frugality as cheapness.
2) Negative environment, bad resource management, poor communication and work-life balance is very very bad. Either be a work-dog or fall into abyss.
3) Questionable hiring policies.
4) Unorganized career-growth plans for employees.
5) Office politics do affect your performance reviews.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1) Get some backbone.
