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

    Pros

    Great work environment with good people around. A steep learning curve for employees at all levels. Freedom to work in terms of hours as well as type of work. A lot of responsibility is given to employees.

    Cons

    Pay is less when compared to competitors. Employee retention isn't considered important for lower roles. Employees are encouraged to work for long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in retaining employees. Provide space for work-life balance.

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

    Pros

    - Learn a lot
    - Decent salary

    Cons

    - Too much of politics (US guys do only that)
    - Terrible Work life balance
    - Folks who got Exceeds ratings and strong contribution ratings also got Zero stocks, and less than inflation hike (<9%)
    - No concept of Performance bonus
    - No clear direction for management and you keep working all through. Its like throwing 100 stones and hoping 1 hits, and by doing so, you are screwed
    - Salary structure is organized in a such a way that you will be thrown out in 2 years, if they don't like you.

    Advice to Management

    - Managers can screw up any employee and no feedback loop for them
