Former Employee - Senior Software Development Manager III in Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Senior Software Development Manager III in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Lots of smart people, lots of cool projects, really value their top employees, good compensation

Cons

poor health care benefits, caustic work environment (dog eat dog), high attrition rate, too much work not enough life balance, really only values top top employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Consider the reputation that you have in the community. You have 1/2 of an incredible company (i.e. the smart people, cool projects, $ to spend, customer focus), but your regretted attrition rate speaks to a culture that doesn't truly value its employees.
