Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Nice atmosphere, good and qualified colleagues, and good principles. I get to work on interesting projects and to decide how to do them: from design to implementation, we do it all ourselves. Some teams work on exciting projects, others work on necessary projects. Less thrilling, but still huge amounts of data or money flows through our software, and it's gratifying to know we make a difference.

Cons

Your career seems to be entirely in your hands, and some bars seem pretty high.

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Good pay
    -Smart people to work with

    Cons

    -Bad management with too many politics
    -highly difficult to move up the ladder in India unless you are able to lick your bosses ass,
    -Hopeless HR. HR and the manager together prevent people from switching teams( though the Amazon culture encourages one to gain diversified experience)
    -cheap behavior towards females by some in the senior management level

    I have been working at Amazon (Less than a year)

    Pros

    There is lot of opportunity to grow. You will be thrilled to work with lot of Techies around you.
    If you join as a fresher then you can learn lot of things from your seniors.

    Cons

    Work life balance will not be there, I felt like people are less but work is more.

    Advice to Management

    Please try to change the work culture, Now Employers are ending up working in more than 12hrs per day.
