    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Get the chance to work with a tonne of very smart people

    Cons

    Ultimately, you will hit he ceiling in California working at Lab126. If you want to really grow your career, you need to be where all the decisions happen and that's Seattle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Delegate more. Too many decisions are held too high up in the organization to make it an effective or efficient place to work

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
