    Good opportunities to improve your technical skills. You have the facility to ask if you don't feel your tasks challenging

    Oncall is a real drawbacks. You are expected to be available any time if you are oncall

    Better if there is a dedicated oncall instead of SDE doing it

    Current Employee - Catalog Quality Specialist in Bangalore
    Current Employee - Catalog Quality Specialist in Bangalore

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, no work pressure, free transport and several other benefits

    Cons

    No growth in terms of learning and career advancement. Growing within the organization won't take you anywhere outside. Most of the the tools used in Ops teams are internally developed and has no relevance to outside world. Not too flexible with the timings. Super monotonous work which add no value to your resume. Career goals and responsibilities are inflated in JD...so beware!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring over qualified people for ops teams

    Doesn't Recommend
