Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Hyderābād (India)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good place to start your career right after college, Good job profile, smart co-workers.

Cons

Too much politics, overwhelming work, no work life balance, extra burden of oncall which doesn't count into your weekly accomplish task, its like a side job that you have to take care without delaying your other tasks and projects.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to exercise better judgement while allocation projects and define precise deadline since a person can work at max 12 hours in a day daily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more opportunities for the talented employees you have. Investing in the tier 3 employees that carry shifts through manager after manager might lead to higher morale and more associate interest in advancing with Amazon.com.

    Pros

    There will always be work for you to do and you have the opportunity to learn different process paths if your area is slow.

    Cons

    People are treated like machines and numbers take precedent to anything else rather than customer obsession as the company claims. I find that operations and management are consistently inconsistent. I understand CAE 1 is a start up building but it should over the hump by now. Training is offered but managers are so number driven to where they won't even allow associates to complete their full training so they can hurry to get them on the floor to make a million mistakes, SMH.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to manage people effectively and goals will be met. Too much cut throat, dog eat dog atmosphere in the fc's but there is always room for improvement. A college degree DOES NOT make you an automatic manager, need to scrap that philosophy very quickly.
