    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Bangalore

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

    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.
