Approves of CEO

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 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.
