    Current Employee - Digital Specialist in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    You're always going to have opportunities to grow within the company. You have a great way to gain experience through mentor-ships. Amazon has a very casual work environment.

    Cons

    Amazon is a very frugal company, therefore no free lunches daily. Restaurants around campus are somewhat expensive. No free Amazon Prime or Kindle Fires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Having a monthly appreciation party would be great! Though not really advice, you guys are awesome!
