Current Employee - Senior User Experience Designer in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Senior User Experience Designer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Working with the smartest and brightest people in the industry

Cons

Very little to no career growth for User Experience discipline

Advice to ManagementAdvice

People whom I've interviewed with on the retail side of the company (non-AWS) are mostly stressed out, narrow-minded, unorganized (don't know what they want), too formal, and unnecessarily arrogant. It's no wonder the attrition rate for UX is high as well as difficulty obtaining new talents.

    Pros

    - The build systems are awesome
    - The compensation doesn't hurt

    - Ramp up is a bit rough but after the learning curve, its easy to get into the flow of the day to day development at Amazon.
