Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner
Current Employee - Human Resources Business Partner

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

Pros

If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
Less company politics than most companies

Cons

Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
Share door desks with others, no personal space
Don't do enough with community service

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer II in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    I work with some of the best engineers that I've seen. Company not too hierarchical. Good work is highly recognized. Ideas are listened to. Technical decisions are made with careful analysis.

    Cons

    Too many meetings. Too much email. Open space. Frugality. Sometimes work is not very engaging. Suffers from being too large. Internal tools sometimes a nightmare to work with. Specialization is difficult. Too much on-call duty.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest on better tools, with better documentation. Deprecate old things. Strive for good simple designs. Encourage specialization.
