    Pros

    Best place for learning, strongly recommend to the people who wanted to learn design and implementation of system.

    Cons

    Before joining , many people suggested me that you will not have any life there. But i love to take challenge and according to me , if a person is happy with his work, then he can work for 8-10 hours a day passionately. So i strongly recommend to the people who are at there early stage and wanted to learn designing and building large systems. This is the place for them to learn.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For some of the team interview process is not fast paced.

    Pros

    The day is never boring, people are nice, managers are helpful. Your colleagues are like your family away from home. A lot can be learnt at Amazon, they train you with dedication and the trainers are all well certified and very knowledgeable. There is growth opportunities if you are doing well/really well.

    Cons

    Timings (Shifts if you are working outside US), You could miss your break times, clocks and timers are needed to remind the employees, that it's time for break.

    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.
