    Pros

    It’s good that you can work from your home. No waste of time in travelling and you have that extra time on hand. Wonderful opportunity for everyone who have lot to handle along with a job

    Cons

    Long hours of working. The adherence to the time you are working is very strict. Everything will be fine if you are paid good. Anyone will work as hard as they want if we get the right pay. The salary they pay for people working for them in India is very very less

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer-II in Bangalore
    Recommends

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Very good pay. 2. Good work culture(it depends on team that you work with) 3. Internal transfers are a big win. There is complete parity and if you do not like your team you can always move to other teams without much issues. 4. Amazon is a highly distributed system and as such for any particular use case a lot of systems are touched. At amazon, if the project is yours then you have to modify all these systems as an away team engineer. This helps one to expand his/her horizon and gather the big picture.

    Cons

    1. Some teams are a lot overloaded leading to long working hours for them. 2. People can be mean and not very helpful in the beginning and expect you to learn on your own by spending long hours at work.

    Pros

    Extremely fast paced environment. Heavy focus on innovation through technology application. Many projects moving towards AI and ML making the work for developers extremely interesting and challenging. True meritocracy.. People get rewarded for their talent and hardwork, faster than any other company that I have worked for.

    Cons

    Expects you to put long hours and take complete ownership for technical deliveries.
