Positive Outlook
Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Pay very well with good benefits Allow for creativity. Anyone who has a good idea is told to go try it, if it works it's implemented throughout the company

Cons

Always changing environment. While this can be a good thing to avoid totally monotonous work, it's kind of demoralizing how things change as soon as you get good at it. Tough work-life balance, especially during peak time

Advice to Management

I worked as a lower level manager, but upper management was very up front with reviews and accessible. I didn't have any issues with the upper management team

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

    Pros

    Amazon has a high hiring bar with competitive compensation and bonuses, and therefore bright people you can learn a lot from about new cutting edge and large scale technologies.

    Cons

    Benefits are at ok level, and you can expect to be doing multiple types of activities during your tenure there - beginning with requirements definition, and finishing with operations support and being on pager duty.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the technical side of the company was more structured into Operations support, development, QA.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern

    Pros

    Ability to carve out your own project scope, surrounded by highly motivated and very intelligent colleagues, flat structure and open access to senior management, entrepreneurship is encouraged within the firm

    Cons

    High pressure environment may not suit everyone, up-or-out mentality does not encourage cooperation, frugal culture means that benefits are not as lavish as other competing tech firms

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to employee feedback and reduce employee turnover to build a more supportive work environment
