I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Lots of challenges. Easy to move to a different job in the company. Always something new happening. You have the software, hardware and training you need. Nice offices in Seattle.

Cons

Can be hard to get the resources you need to do your job. Meetings are often confrontational. Hard to get promoted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Promote collaboration between departments.

    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.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer Intern in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    - The people on your team are very intelligent and the problems are equally thorny and interesting.
    - The build systems are awesome
    - The compensation doesn't hurt

    Cons

    - 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.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager and the org around me was friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work.
