Almost an ecosystem to work at - considering it's scale and different departments, it's a fast-paced internet company that it's changing the way people shop.It's open to ideas, new improved processes and at par with what's happening around the web world.Since the scale is massive, it takes more than one team to make any quick change. While the company is agile, it can take several months to make a small change happen.

Amazon has amazing and high-efficient management strategy. Here, I understood why this company continues growing rapidly given that the turnover rate is bigger than companies like Google and a lot of people have short tenure. Amazon is my first job, and I changed from a student to an industry leader after staying at Amazon for 3 years.Amazon has a lot of smart and passionate people. They are role models for my career and technical growth. I benefited from working here with them.Amazon functions like a startup, and I was impressed by a lot of new and great ideas popped up from people's brains every day.

Excellent Work Culture, Compensation, Perks and also the work.Lots to learn, literally everything in tech is being used here and much more.Some really challenging work with really good salary. They pay more than the market. Chaps working around are really tech sound and usually helping but that may vary from team to team.Please focus on engineering skills of individual along with customer, treat employees as customer to the company.
