    Pros

    You get stabbed in the back so often, you'll develop a sixth sense You've hit rock bottom, but on the bright side you will never work anywhere as bad as this place ever again 100% guaranteed to work for the worst manager of your life. So the only way is up after this point.

    Cons

    L7 and L8's are clueless. They give of a facade of knowledge but it's paper thin. Once you drink the Kool aid there's no going back. Metrics mean nothing if they're not accurate, sadly noone cares so long as they paint a pretty picture Managers who get poor scores in connections do org restructures to try and hide their ineptitude Pay is abysmal. Be warned they suck you in with shares but because of the shares performance you get no salary increase No interest in development Really inward looking, little interest in developing collaborative relationship with suppliers Great people being forced out or treated maliciously by fools, means you learn very quickly that have backbone disagree and commit is just words. They don't want any disagreement, just fawning sycophants They constantly look to cut corners which will be dangerous at some point very soon

    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.
