Fantastic team of go-getters.

Senior User Experience Designer (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat leadership that sets the tone right with long term strategic bets. You have the platform made available to lead from the front on things you want to change. Lots of opportunity to work on high impact problems.

ConsThe design org is a bit geriatric and the leveling system for career progress is still very flimsy. There is a clearly evident glass ceiling that will easily put off ambitious young designers with keen abilities in a few years. You are expected to put in a "fair" time before you can move up the ladder.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
