Fast-paced, customer-centric organization with lot of opportunity to learn.

Software Development Engineer I (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

Pros* Very fast-paced organization with abundant growth opportunity. Within less time, one would get to work on interesting technology, which might not be possible in other organization.
* Working with Smart people and on cool projects
* Happy feeling a developer when the code he developed, serves millions of customers of amazon.com

ConsAll Developers are On-call on a weekly rotational basis, The person who is oncall is responsible for solving all critical issues on the go. For smaller teams, rotation frequency would be faster and very hectic.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
