Current Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer in Hyderābād

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

Pros

Good Compensation
Opportunity to work on great open source technologies
Leadership Principles (only if you team believes in them)
You can disagree with you manager

Cons

Your manager can not disagree with his manager and hence you have to do whatever your manager's manager asks you to do.
Very poor work life balance.
Working for long hours is not considered to be a stretch but as an expected contribution.
If you are unlucky enough to have a weak manager, you would be eclipsed by the whims of your senior manager.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to understand the feasibility of any initiative before forcing it over your subordinates.
Be practical, not egoistic.
Be open to ideas even if they are against your strongest convictions.
