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

Pros

Great workplace. You get to work with an international team that knows a lot about Marketing and Traffic initiatives.

Cons

Any senior role at Amazon takes around 12h a day to get done. That makes work-life balance a bit challenging and leaves no time for your personal life.

Advice to Management

Think about your employees and work backwards. People should always come before business.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great tech company. Great people . Good leadership principles you imbibe if one is willing to.

    Cons

    No Perks apart from salary. Manager and Senior Manager level is not that supportive. Too Diplomatic for a tech company( I think its more in India ). Too much interference from them. On Call Support for 24/7 . Scrum is run by managers where it should be run by SDEs . No Work Life Balance.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being too bureaucratic and diplomatic . Give the scrum to SDEs and please understand that oncall should not be 24/7. We are not slaves!
