UX at Amazon

Senior User Experience Designer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsWorking with the smartest and brightest people in the industry

ConsVery little to no career growth for User Experience discipline

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Talented People but too many cons to stick around for long

    Senior Product Manager (Current Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year


    Pros: Amazon hires some of the most motivates, talented people I have ever work with.
