Current Employee - Systems Engineer in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Opportunity to work with lots of super smart people
Plenty of opportunity to contribute meaningfully at any level
I haven't seen the problems with power plays, politics, or management egos that I hear about in other big companies.

Cons

It's a big company, and some orgs/teams are much better to work for than others. Marketplace is great. I hear great things about AWS. FBA is struggling to keep developers and good managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

From what I hear, the culture in FBA needs a serious overhaul. It's chewing people up.

    Pros

    great work environment, always something new to learn and be tought. great challanges and goals.

    Cons

    there is a saying at amazon, the only thing that is persistant is change...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be willing to get your hands dirty and help where you are needed. associates respect a manager that is willing to jump in and help more than a manager that just directs from a distance.
