    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Start-up culture, plenty of things to be done, ruthless prioritization, huge whitespaces in almost all areas, objective assessment criteria for projects and staff

    Cons

    Too ruthless sometimes, takes a lot of time in aligning stakeholders!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the Day 1 going. I absolutely love this line and leadership principles. One of the few companies which walk the talk!

    Pros

    Amazing work culture and atmosphere
    Well organized and helpful supervisors

    Advice to Management

    Kindly work upon your training staff. There is a clear lag between what is taught in training and how things are done on the floor.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    1. Work culture is good.
    2. Your innovative ideas will be welcomed in any process
    3. Growth is certain if you can quantify and achieve a good impact with your ideas
    4. Relationship with managers will be crucial for growth. A good manager will ensure that you grow.
    5. Learning should never stop. New skill sets are always encouraged.
    6. Millions of opportunities if appropriate skills are learnt which will help in improving the performance metrics necessary for growth.
    7. Gender diversity is good and no bias observed by me.
    8. Good leave policy and no hassle for getting them if you plan them well.
    9. Cab facilities available for employees and lower level employees get some amount as transport allowance if not using cabs which is great.

    Cons

    Very few from my side.
    1. Shifts can be a pain sometimes on health if you are not okay with working on shifts.
    2. Sometimes anonymity of certain aspects of work can hinder you to get the complete picture of the process you work.

    Advice to Management

    Communication across all levels is great. Please continue keeping this in current state.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Mobility is encouraged, engineers can switch teams at very high frequency (I will not advice that though, as per me engineers should try a team or role for at least six months)
    - Deliveries and results are appreciated, executors can grow easily and just verbal claimers cannot survive here
    - Hands-on career tracks are deep, software engineers can grow all the way up to distinguished engineer e.g. James Gosling

    Cons

    - Engineers or Managers looking for a limited hour job may not get so. Work is at times demanding though work life balance is encouraged and possible.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure culture and principles for new hires, for Level 1 to Level 5 employees remains same as what it was 10-15 years ago.
