100% of the CEO
I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years
Pros – Amazon is a great place to learn from smart people, particularly at our remote development site. There's a lot of opportunity for motivated engineers to learn a lot about all aspects of software development and make a direct difference to the business.
Cons – Opportunities for promotion or different work are limited at our remote development site. And dealing with people in other sites is a common source of stress.
Advice to Senior Management – "Think big" is a core competency at Amazon. Senior management may be thinking big, but it would be nice if they shared more about the vision with us as it's not always clear.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years
Pros – Get to work with some real smart and focused people that you can learn from. Great opportunity if you work hard. Opportunity to travel if you work hard and are in a role where travel may be needed. Proud to work for such an innovative company.
Cons – Too political and management play favourites. If you are "in" with the "in crowd" then you will be looked after. Senior management don't know what is happening in the front line, they think they do but are too far away from what people think. Year over year AIS and/or Pulse survey bring up the same failings but work done to fix issues is never fully implemented, this becomes frustrating and demoralising. Lack of or insufficient training in all roles I was invovled in.
Advice to Senior Management – Reach out to the leads and managers if you are looking to improve the CSA experience, engage them fully throughout processes and any change. Communicate everything better and be more transparent. Do not tolerate favouritism and cliques.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
