    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Smart people
    Successful business
    Builds new stuff

    Cons

    Only good for rockstars, if you are not planning to be the best - don't bother. Even from a money perspective, only rockstars get promoted and the big bonuses.

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

    Pros

    - CEO is a visionary
    - 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.
