    Current Employee - Operations

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

    Pros

    - Start up environment
    - Great autonomy
    - Data driven culture
    - High growth possibilities
    - Management willing to let you experiment and make mistakes

    Cons

    - Real Amazon culture is in US - which is Awesome. Indian environment often sees fake manifestations to apply the typical political grind under the cover of Amazon leadership principles.
    - Yes - your manager can play a big role in your ratings; despite the peer feedback
    - Bad appraisal process in general
    - Be prepared to stick in the salary range your got with offer for some time. Monetary growth is puny and promotions need blood and sweat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As I said above - We should be cognizant if the hired leaders can true carry the great Amazon culture baton successfully.
    Please make salary increments practically acceptable.

    Pros

    Seemingly endless headroom for advancment.

    Cons

    The point policy for IT is crap considering we are expected to show when the warehouse needs us but also held to a set schedule which is contradicting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat you IT staff with the respect people in that position should be treated with. We are not an average floor worker.
