Most amazing company I have come across

Manager (Current Employee) Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

Pros- When they say customer centric they mean it. Most companies talk about the customer, but in the end its about how much you can make out of them. Amazon is a business but it believes so much in passing the savings to the customer. Every single senior leader cares deeply about any customer impacting issue. Its inspiring.
- The best shine and get rewarded. You perform, you'll get attention, compensation, opportunities, you name it. They reward people who over-achieve.
- Little politics. For a company this size, I'm amazed at how much a team environment it is. I would have expected different from a large corporate American company. Its not like that and you actually have to talk to your issues in front of your SVP.
- Amazing people. Amazon is doing some ground-breaking stuff so naturally they have a lot of amazing people, but not just technically gifted. At Amazon, the soft skills are just as important as tech. So you get to work with people who you admire and look forward to working with every day. Its a team
- Technology. Amazon is leading the way in Cloud-computing and across the rest of the company there are other really cool things happening. They have the scale only a handful of companies do. Its stuff you just don't get to see in other companies
- Challenge. I doubt there is a company doing anything like Amazon is doing at the pace and scale they have. Every single day I get challenged. Its pretty amazing to go to a job every day thats not only interesting but helps continually grow you

Cons- Lean Organizations. Amazon are hiring a LOT, at the same time it never seems to be enough, so there is a lot of work to do. Its not a 9-5. That said, if you are good it should not be 10 hour days or anything:)
- Frugality. While I love Amazon for passing so much savings to the customer, they need to get better at providing some more for their employees. Not talking Google but there is a better middle ground

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the great work!

– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
