I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

the ability to impact your business quickly and in an action oriented way smart talented people; some of the smartest I've ever worked with good benefits

Cons

constant competition breeds need for everyone to want to be 'right' in the room and be the first person with the answer stack ranking of employees during review time weeding out good or great employees because not everyone can have a great review statistically lack of expectation for management to actually do a good job managing. Working out issues is the employees problem 24 x7 workload

Advice to Management

stop stack ranking your employees and breeding an environment of constant competition. Eventually you will crush your innovation

    Pros

    You will learn a lot. There are some great people here. South Lake Union is lovely.

    Cons

    You will be thrown under the bus. Amazon is notoriously cheap. There is no work/life balance. Appreciation is rare. Too many Microsofties are creeping into the company. Amazon's innovative culture combined with Microsofties who punish innovation creates a strangely schizophrenic environment.

    Advice to Management

    It doesn't matter; you won't listen.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    Pays is decent, not the best but decent

    Cons

    Managers are a bunch egotistic power hungry bullies who pre on lower staff. They are a bunch of malfunctioning idots who needs to realize that the regular worker is just as much of the companie's success as they are.

    Advice to Management

    Hire regular people, not morons to lead the staff!
