Long-time Amazonian

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsThe people that you will meet and closely work with are some of the most well-balanced intelligent people around. Amazon has grown systems internally, and operates at such a large scale, that solutions that other companies would not think of are built at Amazon.

ConsWith the recent growth of employees, there has been a huge addition of upper management brought in from other companies to help manage the growth. However, this has resulted in a degradation of internal systems, product and team knowledge, and new managers that make poor decisions and focus on reporting instead of problem solving.

Advice to Senior ManagementBetter manage growth and training. Better understand the systems and problems staff are dealing with. Rely more on bottoms up feedback. Ensure that the Amazon culture remains intact.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
