Fast-Paced, Exhilarating, Customer-Focused, Neurotic Beast

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 8 years

ProsAmazon is one of those places where execution on business centric goals is valued above all else. These goals are driven by the benefit that they drive to customers. Watching how your work impacts millions of customers is a tremendous ego boost.

The culture and the formula for success and growth in the organization is very well etched out in crisply defined leadership principals.

ConsEngineers are expected to maintain and manage their live systems which can be a frustrating at times. The work load itself can get overwhelming and I have seen people get burnt out quickly.

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