Stressful

QA Engineer II (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon.com

ProsFast Paced, work on interesting and complex projects. The computers and equipment were newer. Free Happy Hour on Fridays

ConsManagers are disrespectful. Yelling seems to be acceptable behaviour. No clear goals to be measured against. People from other departments are hostile and don't want to work with other departments for the common good. The yelling from the manager killed off all 7 contractors. The lead developer would yell over the slightest issue. It was later discovered he was fired from previous job because he couldn't get along with anyone.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet manager's with some social skills. Yelling is not going to get you heard. Communicate changes in a respectable manner.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

An emotional roller coaster

Senior Recruiter (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com


Pros: Challenging, always an insurmountable mountain of work and opportunity. The very best talent I… Cons: Throw Quality of Life out the window. If you need accolades, don't come here. If you want to develop and you need others… Advice to Senior Management: Take better care of your people. When the economy swings to the positive, we will… More
