    - An experience to learn how the worlds biggest e-commerce company operates
    - People working here are very smart and talented
    - Agile and fast moving
    - Flexible timing

    Cons

    - Process bureaucracy and jam
    - No work life balance
    - Favoritism
    - Sometimes the "being Frugal" philosophy comes down to being cheap
    - Not much of benefits like other big Internet giants
    - Not much of quality work in India Development Center
    - Employees are treated as "Resource"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Needs to re align mid level management in India to stop bureaucracy, and focus more on people to encourage more talent.

    Overworked and not cared for

    Former Employee - SDE2  in  Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Career builder. You will be in the cutting edge of todays technology.

    Cons

    Overworked and you have no life while you work for Amazon. The rare cases of people staying with them for longer than 4 years are actually the ones that have learned how to work the internal system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower the SDE-s. Don't look after M$ b/c you will end up like them.
