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

    Pros

    Some of the people you meet can be nice and helpful - these are typically the people who have been working for longer than 5 to 10 years in their careers (overall), and know what they can contribute to the company and how best to fit in the team. The management style is also very western - as long as you can finish your work, you do not need to conform to the standard office hours. Work-life balance is encouraged and benefits are on-par with larger Singapore MNCs.

    Cons

    Newer, younger hires are entitled and feel they should be taken care of by management, instead of helping themselves. They constantly berate management and think the world of themselves, even though they do not contribute much to the company. In the Singapore office, the younger generation are egoistic and enjoy playing politics, even within their own teams. They would exaggerate their contributions and be awesome at reporting upwards to management. I have a colleague who loves asking the same 'deep' questions whenever management visits from Seattle just to ensure her presence is noted. Unfortunately, the current interview process is created to hire these types of "me-first" and "everyone-else-but-me-is-to-blame" employees. Senior management is also partial to ignoring cultural problems, as they are under tremendous pressure to meet KPIs. They pay lip service to ground employees but turn around and pass the problem to someone else, until the problem is buried under a stack of other problems.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps try taking a look at the culture and interview process to encourage a better employee attitude for everyone to contribute to the company, rather than creating an environment where individual contributions are emphasized over team efforts. I've seen so many newsflashes and projects attributed to individuals, rather than a team effort. What's the point of creating teams if everyone's work and contributions are individually partitioned and acknowledged? It can only foster a culture of backstabbing and politics. The efforts of managers are also overlooked in lieu of self-entitled team members.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, colleagues, process, knowledge base.

    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.
