Pros

Good pay, a lot of room to work at your own pace and make your rate. Well ventilated areas and easy access to water or free Gatorade.

Cons

Rates sometimes can be slanted or unrealistic depending on the amount of space given. Don't expect to be able to use sick days or get much personal time off easily in case of an emergency.

    Pros

    Career Development - Amazon has a create performance management process and toolset compared to other small, medium, and large companies I've worked for. Goals & competencies to be evaluated against, and a discipline of regular 1:1's really helped. Focus on Operations - Amazon understands that poor availability is as important to the bottom line as new features. The People - the people are smart, from recruiting to development to infrastructure. They believe in the vision of the company and in the products, and they produce high-quality work because of that.

    Cons

    Work/life balance - It was always difficult to manage the balance between work and home life due to the sheer amount of work involved in creating and supporting the wide array of products and services Amazon provides. Valuing non-technical people - I was a technical manager with a non-technical background. While Amazon believes in the importance of focusing on people management, I was also expected to excel at being an engineer. Very difficult to keep a pulse on technology while try to take care of your directs.

    Pros

    Salary is ok, initial stock offering is good

    Cons

    No promotions within ERP, no training offered, no career growth, stock and signing bonus used as basis for yearly compensation for 4 - 5 years. Long hours are normal.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Ask about their career aspirations.
