    Pros

    Innovative and creative, Amazon pushes the boundaries of e-tailing.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. Get ready for long hours, weekends and a work life balance that will be throw off your social schedule. Amazon will due the bare minimum to fall in line with city, state and national laws and regulations but don't expect anything more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to see high turnover as long as the current structure exists. Lack of respect, trust and career development are just a few shortcomings of the Amazon culture.

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer  in  Bangalore (India)
    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Bangalore (India)

    Pros

    You're CTC might appear as a good number (read the offer doc carefully, even the employer PF goes from your CTC)
    Number of stocks (mostly you'll get it after 3 years - depends upon the employee)
    Lot of technical challenges (which is good for learning)
    Employees don't speak English, they'll speak in some programming languages :)

    Cons

    As someone mentioned, Employees are "Resources". Management will look at you as a "price tag".
    Facilities are too frugal and I feel most of the employees became "miser" after joining here.
    They'll say its "Cheap and Best" but most of the time its just "Cheaper". You've to ask for everything (even simple stationaries) and fight for hike.
    No free transport (around 4k per month in India).
    Never expect work-life balance (might have seen this in other reviews).
    Can't do any higher studies in correspondence even with your own money (due to some stupid policy).
    And at last, never expect any perks (apart from tea/coffee and employee medical insurance).

    This company will change the way, you look at the money you may miss the other part of your life after joining!

    Why I'm still here? Just to get a brand name in my resume!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You look so cheaper!! Just reduce the "frugality" bar!!
    Don't be cheap just to add a point in your performance review!!
    Arrange some team building activities (like team-outing, team-lunch). When I look at my colleagues I can think only about "object, class, abstract etc"... nothing else!!
