Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good place to start your career right after college, Good job profile, smart co-workers.

Cons

Too much politics, overwhelming work, no work life balance, extra burden of oncall which doesn't count into your weekly accomplish task, its like a side job that you have to take care without delaying your other tasks and projects.

Advice to Management

Need to exercise better judgement while allocation projects and define precise deadline since a person can work at max 12 hours in a day daily.

    Pros

    1. Great leadership.

    4. Love for technology and costumer obsession.

    Cons

    1. Frugal strategy. Very low perks to employees compared to all the other top technical companies
    2. The technical stack is already been designed and very stable. This reduces the learning opportunities available in other small technical firms.

    Advice to Management

    Need to create more learning opportunity and a little low stress on deliverables
