    Pros

    Learn new stuff. If you go to good team and work under a good manager you are lucky.

    Cons

    Pass feedback to HR, they would share with management
    Rogues and immature managers lead large teams.
    No goals set, reviews are wishy washy, no official written reviews shared
    Manager has to like you, else you are doomed. Senior management is too busy to hear you. Didn't have any context on you or product.
    Associates team in Bangalore is one such team, heavy attrition with jokers as senior managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be human first. Ethics are important.

    Pros

    -Good pay
    -Cab facility for all departments at all levels
    -Very much concerned about employees
    -Good management at all levels
    -Work hard, have fun, make history-apt tagline
    -Recognition of hard work
    -Many leaves
    -Good HR policies
    -Lot of opportunities for internal movement.

    Cons

    Nothing negative to write about. But recruitment process is little slow(same like every other mnc). You will have to wait very long to get the interview result and offer letter in hand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You guys are doing awesome. Keep up the god work. Many ecommerce companies are trying to beat you. But as a matter of fact, nothing can beat amazon.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great place to work at if you are looking at rapidly improving your knowledge base. Very fast paced and dynamic work environment which keeps you on your toes all the time and ensures you deliver. Most of them on the business side are extremely intelligent and grounded people who are quite approachable and humble.

    Cons

    Lot of politics in some teams- but this is the case with most of the companies. Compensation is good but increments are rather meager during appraisal.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    1. Compensation - Amazon pays you adequately
    2. Brand Value - Amazon alumni are going places
    3. Smart people - You are working with some of the brightest.

    Cons

    1. Work-life balance is not proportional to the pay.
    2. Some of the senior management do not recognize your value and consequently the higher attrition rates
    3. High customer satisfaction but low employee satisfaction
    4. Does not have the perks that are there in some of the other tech companies like Google.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Maintain the high hiring bar.
    Please do work towards employee satisfaction and retention.
