    Pros

    great product to work for great and passionate people to work with

    Cons

    All directions and decisions are being made in Seattle, or if you are lucky, in Luxembourg - so you might have a say in it (i frankly never had) Actual results do not matter, just show off, change some numbers and you will be a star If you are bad, you will be treated badly. If you are good, you'll get more work, and probably will be treated less badly The training are made by in house employees who want to train. You want to learn SQL? good - let me train you. If you want external training - you'll have a bad time Frugality is one of the cornerstones of Amazon. But if you get a cheap laptop, no training, less budget to hire people ... it's just frustrating and makes you inefficient

    Advice to Management

    Frugality is blocking a lot of work and creates frustration. Ease up Listen to your employees - and if you listen, do care Do not reward arrogance
