Amazing company, with super-smart people and a great atmosphere.

Human Resources (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

Pros-Casual, but intense work environment, surround by smart and engaging people
-Relaxed dress code (jeans, t-shirts, etc.)
-Great environment if you are a "peculiar" Amazonian
-Right in the city, with great access to restaurants, shopping, etc.

Cons-Expensive lunch options (~$10+), since there are no company subsidized cafeterias
-Parking is costly, and public transit is OK
-Benefits are OK, but not on par with Google or MSFT

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work and keep the emphasis on mainting the current culture. Continue hiring great talent, even if it's challenging getting the right people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
