Snapchat is a very popular app among people, especially the youngsters. Probably there are no such people who haven’t tried snapchat’s attractive face filters to click their pictures. Lately, the company has been going through a transition where the employees joke by calling the company as snapazon. This is because the company has slowly started to shift upon the working culture of Amazon. This all happened because of the reorganization of the company that came about to be a little more brutal as the employees expected it to be. Many employees complain that they did not expect that their job is in danger. One such employee also said that the company is continuously misleading its employees. Earlier the company also said to increase their head count by 10%

The managers also said that the company, snapchat, is slowly becoming obsessed with Amazon. Snap has now chosen a very tough working style that is generally followed by Amazon with this massive reorganization process.
