Great place to start your career and/or grow

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee) Chennai (India)

ProsSmart peers,
Good pay,
Freedom and ownership.
Amazon had successfully found a formula to satisfy technical talents by including them as part of the business decision making process even though business and customers being the priority one.

ConsWork-life balance
No great opportunity to learn technical skills / learn new stuff ( apart from the project work )

Advice to Senior ManagementThink more about contributing and innovating on technical talent and resources ( like open source ) through which the company had gained immensely ( like Android and other Open software )

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
