I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some of the smartest and passionate people you will meet. When Amazon talks about putting the customer first, it is not just talk. The entire focus of every team is figuring out how to serve their immediate customers better which in turn can be very exciting. The influence that a single person can have is great as high performers are able to take control of their career and do what they wish with it.

Cons

Some of the Microsoft-esque HR policies are infuriating. Pay is highly dependent on job family, which is silly when they encourage individuals to have an impact, regardless of job title/family. The pay is not always going to be market level, especially if the stock is not doing well.

Advice to Management

Get rid of the job family guidelines for top performers.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am impressed by what I have seen in Amazon so far. it is very efficient and well managed. The sense of ownership and customer focus is so strong that you can feel it from employees in all levels. You have opportunity to work with bunch of smart people. People here are kind and willing to offer help as long as you ask.

    Cons

    The ramp up curve is big. It usually takes about few months to understand Amazon technology and culture. No formal training program.

    Advice to Management

    It is a challenge to grow so fast but still keep the original culture. Middle layer management team is the key.
