    One of the best places to work at because of the work culture and the things it does for its customers

    Pros

    Amazing Company, Best work culture, I love the policies placed for the customers and the lengths to which Amazon goes for its customers and delivers the orders for them. It will do anything to deliver the items to the customers and customer satisfaction is of the top priority to this company and it is indeed the Earth's most customer centric company.

    Cons

    Initially the work culture was great but as time passed by new managers got hired who previously worked for a different company. They started imbibing the culture from their former companies into Amazon's work place which made the life of large group of employees hard and most of the them resigned from their positions because of the change in work culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management in Hyderabad - Know more about how Amazon works and what the culture in Amazon is and then try to follow and imbibe the same culture.

    Pros

    Amazon is a place where you are allowed to explore, invent and simplify. you learn you grow, and you make an impact on millions of lives. If I look back at my 2 years with Amazon my learning curve is almost a vertical line and so is every one's. I love it here.

    Cons

    work life balance is something you have to take care if.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Even as an intern, I had a say in many team decisions and my opinion were always honored.

    Cons

    (This must be relevant only to the India branch) The infrastructure is not good. Proper leisure space and food court is absent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Amazon has a good number of employees in India and so it should think of getting its own campus.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Flexibility of the work schedules is the best part of the work.
    The work environment is pretty competitive and friendly, you would always like going to the office.
    Most of the managers are very friendly and like encouraging good work.
    The medical benefits provided are top notch.

    Cons

    Compensation that is given out is a little disheartening. Especially after the hard-work you put in day in and day out. I'm sure that's a strategy that comes into picture since India is supposed to provide cheap labor.
