    Pros

    Great work culture. Casual dressing. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Suppose your salary is 2 lakhs per annum. They will hire new guys and they pay them 3.6 lakhs per annum. You can only imagine how you would feel. Other thing, if you are level 2 employee. You will apply for L3, you will be tested for 3-6-9 months and then you will remain there with permanent L3 position or sent back to your previous level = Demotion.

    Lately many HSBC employees were fired from HSBC and they are now under the umbrella of Amazon. They are hired as managers here and they are trying to convert cool Amazon to bad Amazon by carrying forward their previous organization (HSBC) policies which are most into cost cutting, reducing employee benefits. One of such policy change is, implementing buses with point pickup and point drop by removing Cabs which were home pickup and home drop.

    Advice to Management

    First give preference to the internal employees for promotions. Equalize the pay for the employee hired externally as you always pay so much for the employee who is hired from outside Amazon.

  5. Always Something to do

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    Always keep busy, whether its monthly work or ad-hoc 'fires' to put out; there's always something going on. You have the ability to do what you want and go with it rather than seeking the approval of others.

    Cons

    Depending on the group could end up working a lot. Also, can be difficult getting help if needed, everyone's always busy.

    Pros

    Opportunity is what you make of it, stretch assignments, global work. Job Security as it is a large company that rarely terminates in some Orgs.

    Cons

    Work/life balance, it is up to you to control it, as well as your own development, you have to do it all.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees have lives and want to do the best they can for the company, running lean produces sub-par results.
