    Pros

    There is almost zero politics in this company and you are judged only on the basis of your performance regardless of tenure.

    Cons

    Though you have leaves with you but the manager would indirectly ask you not to avail all leaves due to business requirement.

    Advice to Management

    Leaves policy should be improved and more employee centric

    Pros

    Highly talented workforce
    Friendly managers
    Good ambience & facilities
    Brand value & global exposure
    Updated on latest technologies

    Cons

    Appraisal process - They're not like other companies where you complete 3 years and move to next level. Amazon's promotion bar is very high and you have to work relentlessly & prove yourself consistently to grow.

    But even after doing so much they won't recognize immediately for your contributions. They fix a time frame for your growth and you have to wait for your turn which is frustrating.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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