I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Very smart people
Vast variety of businesses which in turns allows you the flexibility to move around

Cons

No community involvement
no employee growth focus
Once you are in the company, the salary increments are not much

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I worked in Amazon for 3 years and 70% of the company NOW started after me. That says something about your work culture and also the salary increments you give employees year over year

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The pay is awesome, 3 day weekends, montly bonuses, stock options, 401k

    Cons

    Not a lot of hiring from within, EVERYTHING requires at minimum a bachelors degree, management is uncaring, having fun is at a minimum

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start hiring from within to management more. It is very difficult to inspire change in a company, especially one that you love so much, when being a tier 3 or below. There are great minds that get passed up everyday because a piece of paper is so important. I have been lucky enough to have some of the greatest management experience here, however I feel that people with great ideas are usually just passed up.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Learn by watching some of the best minds in the industry.
    Depends on the team but almost everyone is friendly and helpful.
    Great sense of ownership.
    Everyone is customer obssessed and they do what is best for the customer, great emphasis on customer experience and I have heard of instances when the company bears losses but provides a consistent customer experience.
    The smaller teams work like a startup, fast paced and full of energy.

    Cons

    Comapny is frugal, but that is why it is No1 online retailer so don't expect freebies.
