Pros

Amazon is a great place to learn from smart people, particularly at our remote development site. There's a lot of opportunity for motivated engineers to learn a lot about all aspects of software development and make a direct difference to the business.

Cons

Opportunities for promotion or different work are limited at our remote development site. And dealing with people in other sites is a common source of stress.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

"Think big" is a core competency at Amazon. Senior management may be thinking big, but it would be nice if they shared more about the vision with us as it's not always clear.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    1. Great leadership.
    2. Awesome principles and strategy
    3. Technical stack is the best in the market and top notch engineers
    4. Love for technology and costumer obsession.

    Cons

    1. Frugal strategy. Very low perks to employees compared to all the other top technical companies
    2. The technical stack is already been designed and very stable. This reduces the learning opportunities available in other small technical firms.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to create more learning opportunity and a little low stress on deliverables
