I have been working at Amazon full-time

Pros

Benefits are nice, great because there's no work anywhere else.

Cons

Although a high tech company, pay is low for what you do. People are not always nice, and seem to keep to themselves.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    If you are looking to develop excellent distributed systems then amazon.com is the place.
    Work is amazing. I'm currently involved in developing low latency , horizontally scalable , fault tolerant systems. The work is very challenging. Also the company lets you own what you develop. Starting from architecture , coding , testing , maintaining your software which no other company provides. You will come to know all the aspects of software development.

    Cons

    1. Work pressure is a little high but manageable.
    2. On call support is little tough.
    3. Salary hikes are not good. But definitely the experience is very useful if you want to move.
    4. Intellectual talent of the candidates varies a lot. You can find people who are very good to not so good. But for good people the work is definitely going to be very good.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast growth for those who are willing to work 24/7

    Cons

    No work life balance.
    Have to sit on oncall duty in which we have to literally work 24/7.
    Bad HR Policy., and employment program. Your growth completely depends on your managers wish.

    Advice to Management

    Should have good HR Policices and have better control on Management. Most of the Software engineer leave the company in leass than a year or 2.
