Approves of CEO

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

Pros

- Start up environment
- Great autonomy
- Data driven culture
- High growth possibilities
- Management willing to let you experiment and make mistakes

Cons

- Real Amazon culture is in US - which is Awesome. Indian environment often sees fake manifestations to apply the typical political grind under the cover of Amazon leadership principles.
- Yes - your manager can play a big role in your ratings; despite the peer feedback
- Bad appraisal process in general
- Be prepared to stick in the salary range your got with offer for some time. Monetary growth is puny and promotions need blood and sweat.

Advice to Management

As I said above - We should be cognizant if the hired leaders can true carry the great Amazon culture baton successfully.
Please make salary increments practically acceptable.

    Pros

    latest and cutting edge Technology.
    one of the best places to learn and grow.
    Open to people of various background, skills and trades.

    Cons

    I might be part of small percantage of hires but Amazon India, have a practice of making lateral hires by mis reporting the Titles, positions to candidates.

    I have been confirmed for a title of SDE 2 and yet after a week of joining, it was told theres been a mistake and you have been hired for SDE 1.

    Advice to Management

    To think about ecom business model which is based on customer trust.
