Great company to work for...

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)

I worked at Amazon.com

ProsThere is a tremendous pool of talent working for Amazon. Anyone joining the company will be able to make a contribution from day one, while being able to take on responsibility early on. The opportunities for personal development are many.

ConsThe base pay isnt great. The share package seems attractive, however, you salary increases and incremental share grants take into the account the shares which you have already been issued, so in reality, there is no upside if the share price outperforms.

Advice to Senior ManagementAmazon UK is doing really well, keep doing a great job. Make sure you pay your staff in a manner which reflects the unfortunately location.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
