    Pros

    It is possible to switch teams often but you would have to wait for a year before you can move out from your current team. the quality of work depends on the team but there are lot of good teams. most of the folks are good.

    Cons

    Managers have no vision and some of them are terrible at managing people.

    Advice to Management

    Get good managers

    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 Management

    I think they can become more employee centric.
