I've been generally satisfied, but as Amazon balloons in personnel I worry.

Pros

You get to build some of the world's leading software.

Cons

You must support and maintain crap that somebody else wrote, but your team "owns" even though you don't have resources to make it better.

    Pros

    Challenging, face-paced work environment with a strong customer service focus. Employees are encouraged to "Work Hard, Have Fun, Make HIstory". That's just what we're doing!

    Cons

    Uneven workload distribution. High performing employees seem to get "dumped on" while low performers slide by while pocketing the same salaries. Very discouraging and unfair. My peers have time for chats, social networking and extended breaks while I can't seem to stay above water.

    Advice to Management

    Implement work logs and pay attention to workload distribution. Don't burn out your best performers!

    The security agents are pretty rude.
    During peal time, the long hours can have a negative affect on your life
    Be sure to invest in some insoles for your shoes, you will regret it if you don't.
