Former Employee - Manager in Hyderābād (India)
Former Employee - Manager in Hyderābād (India)

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

Pros

good culture was tranperent and people were humble and seen mentors encouraging their peers to grow along with them

Cons

couple of the management team members does not tolerate the peers to be more energetic and knowledgeable than them either they are tortured so they they leave the org .

How loyal you are to the org but to get back to Amazon is an Hilarious task as we have to please N number of people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pls do have the same culture as in US and maintain transparency in terms of employee engagement and the process/procedures do not limit them to the pals of the decision makers

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

    Pros

    - Smart people all around keeping you on toes.
    - Culture of thinking out of box.
    - Tough milestones to achieve promotions ... extracts the best out of the employees.
    - A transparent internal job transfer to suit an employee's choice.

    Cons

    - pathetic work-life balance.
    - in the name of frugality , they do some cheap and mean things like choose a facility in the remotest corner of the city where facilities are cheap.
    - the job offer letter misleads almost every employee...in the sense that the stocks given to an employee is considered every year during appraisal and the increment in salary will be in inverse proportion of stocks vested, so if lots of stocks gets vested , the company won't give you much hike even if you are a top performer.
    - Hard to get recognized for good-work but fast enough to get criticized for an error.
    - Have a history of Lay-off at trifle error.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An employee's work ownership does not make the employee a work-horse which can keep running without any pause. Learn to recognize key employee and try to make them happy , after all they are the ones which keeps your company alive.
