    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.
