    Pros

    Fast paced environment, with lots going on in several country. Think for yourself and self-service attitude.

    Help is not always at hand when you need it, due to the self-service attitude. Workforce spread over several countries can make meetings difficult.

    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!
