    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hires the best. I have worked with (mostly) amazing people. That is one of the biggest pleasures of working here. There are some truly great people who work here. It's a very creative, fast paced company that expects a lot out of the people it hires, which means the people that get through are ready for a challenge.

    Cons

    I've seen a lot of people get burned out very quickly. Make no mistake, you work long hours and there is always something changing or improving or needing attention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate your employees and let them know it.

    Pros

    Not much really. The org i work in is has few avg engineers. There is somethings you can learn "What not to do" in software

    Cons

    Transportation has no clear vision, no good leader. sMostly operational work, Fix , Fix, Fix, Fix, nothing to develop much. aweful workplace.
    I have nothing good to say

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn respecting people and respecting their life. You have not hired people for 24/7. Fastness is not the key, invest in your software.
