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

    Pros

    1) Learn how to value customer and build products by starting with Customer.
    2) Reasonable Pay. Not Competitive.
    3) Flexible Timings.

    Cons

    I have some large list of negatives
    1) Management treats Employees as junk. They are just resources for them. Whenever the employees leaves, they don't try to retain the employee( as they can always find someone from India to work on shitty projects).
    2) The Projects doesn't require any advanced CS knowledge. They can even train easily other people to do that junk stuff.
    3) Oncall burden. Its very bad for an engineer to wake up in the mod night and work on tickets.
    4) No career growth. I don't know where i will go after 3 to 4 years.
    5) Gets promotions once in every 4 years.
    6) Lot of Manager does Micro managing.
    7) Compromised Hiring bar. I have seen instances where they are hiring the people who doesn't know how to code properly. This is because the managers want to project their growth by completing the projects on time(by compromising the hiring the bar).
    8) Frugality at Peaks.
    9) Crammed workspaces. These days amazon offices resemble a trading companies.
    10) No perks. No benefits.
    11) No creative projects. All the projects are started and coded in the Seattle. And then it will be transferred to India for maintenance and adding small features.
    12) People are working here only to get the brand.
    13) No work life balance.
    14) No team outings
    15) SDEs rarely gets transferred to Seattle.
    16) In India, Amazon has lost its significance. Jon the amazon if you want money.
    17 Hike which will be given will be consumed by the increased income tax. So almost no hike.

    Advice to Management

    Please give some creative projects to people. Dont hire SDE for fixing the bugs. You can hire nice Support Engineers with less pay. try to understand the meaning of furgality and don't show the frugality on the necessary things. Stop hiring the managers coming from Services companies like Infosys, TCS etc. Hire Software Dev manager who actually did some coding. Treat the employees with some respect. Please try to other career options if the SDEs are trying to leave the company. Good people are essential for the company.
