    Good for freshers, but high work pressure

    Software Development Engineer I (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsThere is a lot to learn : Amazon uses a lot of new technologies in its code base. You will get to learn a lot of things.
    Good compensation
    Flexible working hours : The working hours is flexible as long as you do your job.
    A very high brand value.

    ConsMost of the teams face too much work pressure. Particularly, the one who is on call.
    Job distribution is not good. As a developer, you may have to write unit test cases, document several things.
    You are expected to work on random services which are not documented well.

    Advice to Senior ManagementReduce the work pressure from employees.

    Great company to learn, no scope to grow in long term.

    Software Development Engineer I (Current Employee) Hyderābād

    ProsThis is a great place to add skill sets to ones resume. The company has great tools for development and you can get help from people with a lot of knowledge to learn a lot about distributed software platforms.
    The name of Amazon helps a lot when you plan to switch to other companies.

    ConsAmazon is famous for frugality towards its employees. It is hell bend to spend least on its employees. The whole notion of infinite availability of new employees within the company has taught Amazon not to value its current employees.
    The work-life balance is greatly disturbed, specially if you are in a team which owns lot of old software.
    The managers are not very experienced.
    The salary hikes are very less compared to other companies.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing the most customer-centric company would have been much easier if the company had taken good care of its employees.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
