Not a great place to work as Full-time perm

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time

Proslots of money and good benefits

Consno time to live your life. The hours will kill any family life you want. They hire you and you have a brief honeymoon period of about 1 month but after 2 months the honeymoon is over. Be prepared to work your butt off and if you can't then be ready to work somewhere else. Oh and the signing bonus they will want that back if you didn't last a year at amazon. I feel sorry for all the college students getting out of college and working for amazon. Amazon is using and abusing you. Believe it.

Cheaper company

Software Development Engineer (Current Employee)
Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year


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… 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… Advice to Senior Management: You look so cheaper!! Just reduce the "frugality" bar!! Don't be cheap just to add a point in your performance review!! Arrange some… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
