I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEORecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
Stock compensation plans are generous. Managers push you to develop to your full potential and beyond and will support you. Very family like culture and if you make or exceed their minimum requirements when you first come on board, you do have a real opportunity for success. Amazon deeply appreciates anyone with solid leadership abilities. They aggressively seek to recruit military personnel and will take seriously any genuine recommendations for improvement even from their lowest level associates.
There can be a lot of hard work with little time to do it in. Work life balance can be very challenging. Amazon practices a lean culture but it is at times a little too lean to the point where resources are not available achieve goals. They also focus a lot of relocation so if you really want to go far in the company, don't expect to settle down in one geographical area for many years.
Advice to Management
Keep doing what you are doing while still recognizing that at the end of the day family is what life is all about.
