    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 Management

    Stop hiring over qualified people for ops teams

    Pros

    If you can get things done, this is the place to be. No one will stop you to try new things. Moving to different teams are encouraged a lot. Great opportunity to transfer to Amazon international offices permanently.
    Very intelligent set of people to work with.
    You will get to really own deliveries in your capacity.

    Cons

    After you join, hikes are not great. Promotions are only for the very best. You can end up spending considerable amount of time in your current job level.
    No focus on employee satisfaction apart from compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on Employee satisfaction.
