    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    average benefits but nothing compared to others in s/w industry (2007-2008 timeframe)

    Cons

    petty atmosphere, hostile/harassment behavior encouraged by some managers and ignored by others, caught management actually lying to customers and potential customers to get sales (lack of morals/ethics), cutthroat, employees told to be thrifty as reason why there are no good s/w perks in company (ie. frugal) but then treated like slaves (everyone I knew in s/w group wanted out but was too terrified to leave because they believed management spiel that they wouldn't ever get a job again)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    grow up and act like responsible leaders
