    Pros

    Salary, benefits, colleagues, process, knowledge base.

    Cons

    Working culture, not something that i can deal with. Due to company’s growth the dept is short handed and we’re expected to work overtime to cover colleagues thats on medical leave or annual leave.

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

    Pros

    -Excellent quality of work. Challenging projects. -Good compensation. -Lot of opportunities to move internally across geographies. You can join a team and move to another team within 6 to 9 months (if you do not like the current team and if you have demonstrated your value). -Opportunity to learn the Amazonian ways of working (e.g: writing Docs/Papers rather than creating PowerPoint decks). -Brand Name. This... helps while looking out for jobs outside of Amazon. -Opportunity to work and learn with some of the smartest professionals.

    Cons

    -Very basic employee benefits (extremely frugal). -Long working hours. -Extremely competitive peers (filled with Type A personalities). -Very difficult to get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Learn from Google, FB and Microsoft and improve employee benefits - 1) better health insurance coverage, 2) free or subsidized food etc.
