    I worked at Amazon.com

    Pros

    Amazon is the best play to work. There are various events which happens within the company to make sure employees are happy with their job roles. Apart from that there are always chances for employers to go in other domains within amazon with the help of internal job posting which is encouraging.

    Cons

    Once you join amazon, there will not be any personal life. Can't take long vacations. Sadly, have to work in peak season.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think they can become more employee centric.

    Pros

    There is almost zero politics in this company and you are judged only on the basis of your performance regardless of tenure.

    Cons

    Though you have leaves with you but the manager would indirectly ask you not to avail all leaves due to business requirement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leaves policy should be improved and more employee centric

    Pros

    Highly talented workforce
    Friendly managers
    Good ambience & facilities
    Brand value & global exposure
    Updated on latest technologies

    Cons

    Appraisal process - They're not like other companies where you complete 3 years and move to next level. Amazon's promotion bar is very high and you have to work relentlessly & prove yourself consistently to grow.

    But even after doing so much they won't recognize immediately for your contributions. They fix a time frame for your growth and you have to wait for your turn which is frustrating.
