    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    My team is great. Flexible hours. Work life balance. Wonderful manager. Ability to work from home. Team activity every once in a while. Most team members help each other out when help is needed.

    Cons

    My team is great. Some other teams are not so good. Normal cons for a big software company. Sometimes on call on weekends (during the day, once or twice a month).

    Advice to Management

    Lots of benefits for USA team members compared to non-USA team members.

    I have been working at Amazon

    Pros

    Very good on-boarding training for new Cloud Support Engineers.Very good global relocation policy.AWS is the biggest cloud infrastructure company and you get to work with some of the biggest companies/customers in the world.You will get to work on almost all type of technologies as a part of cloud support team.

    Cons

    Being the cloud support engineer may lead to change in your profile to somewhat specific to AWS services/products .But being in touch with the generic technology has to be made.However that should not be keep you from working on the awesome products.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Opportunities to do great things with a group of talented and enthusiastic people. Very autonomous, no micro management.

    Cons

    The pace is very fast and people want to work hard to be part of something, so it's easy to burn out.

    Advice to Management

    Create moments to take a breath.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Challenging - Lots of opportunity to learn - Great work environment and perks

    Cons

    - Average salary and not growing at all per company's growth - After 2 years people feel demoted due to weird salary packaging model

    Advice to Management

    - Being frugal is great but providing almost free services to most customer isn't - Revise weird salary packaging model and salary as per company's growth
