    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.

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