Good company but management is bad.
TCSA Core Amazon Web Services (Current Employee) – Cape Town, Western Cape – 12 February 2019
At AWS you work at your own pace , no one chases after you to work and the work place is good. There's pool and nice lounge are to relax. There's a coffee machine , free cooldrinks and monthly lunches.
The hourly rate is good but there is no bonus or incentive, You make extra cash by working overtime.
It's a nice place to gain experience however, the job security is not good as people get dismissed quickly for perfomance. At AWS you're measured by customer ratings (five star ratings) which is out of your control most of the time because the customers use emotions to rate. So this determines your job .
The management is bad, most of them they're clueless and don't know what they are doing. You can't rely on management for mentoring and development. The management is also not transparent and trust worthy, so you have to self manage.
There is not much growth aswell, so getting promoted to a bigger role or getting a better position is really scares.
salary, free food, work pace
management, no bonuses, job security
