    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.
