    Pros

    The work place environment is employee friendly.

    Cons

    The growth opportunities in the long run is very less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The work environment has become very pressurizing like other BPOs though amazon is not a BPO. We look up to Amazon as it believed in letting the employee grow by taking their own decisions but lately everything is forced upon us.

    Pros

    Interview is focused mostly on data structures and algorithms. Easy to beat if you're doing online coding for some months. Good thing about thing is that you get to meet so many smart people.

    Cons

    Too much work load. Not at all good for married people or who have other responsibilities that require time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start taking care of employees. Don't use them as cheap resources.

    Pros

    Best place for learning, strongly recommend to the people who wanted to learn design and implementation of system.

    Cons

    Before joining , many people suggested me that you will not have any life there. But i love to take challenge and according to me , if a person is happy with his work, then he can work for 8-10 hours a day passionately. So i strongly recommend to the people who are at there early stage and wanted to learn designing and building large systems. This is the place for them to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For some of the team interview process is not fast paced.
