Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Bangalore

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

- Smart people, you will be surprised the time and effort the company invests in finding people
- Decent pay, average of the industry set of competitors, could be better
- Work smart, hard and long. As Jeff says, 2 of the 3 won't work :-)
- Strong sense of accomplishment when work is done

Cons

- Too exhausting at times
- Management may not be transparent always
- Some managers would qualify politicians (really). Stay away from them and just exchange smiles, nothing more
- Recognition. There are few people waiting to shoot using your hardworking. Wonder how they got hired!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't lose the great people. Figure out how to really use peer feedback to weed out the political ones and your will have the best place to work in Bangalore. You are close already.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Do good stuff and learn

    Cons

    Too much churn. General strategy is to keep doing all, and see what works.
    Very bad work life balance. Almost zero personal life.
    Poor accountability for senior management.
    Growth is poor. For same work hours, you can grow easily elsewhere. Hike are pitiable.
    Zero performance bonus culture. Zero stocks in most cycles (blaming the stock growth).
    Too many people quit because of health reasons, unable to cope up with unnecessary work pressures

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix the Cons above.
