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 for 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.

    Current Employee - Management

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great benefits, salary, and career opportunities
    Surrounded by top talent
    Looks great on a Resume

    Cons

    Work/Home life balance is difficult
    Change comes too fast, too often, and it does not have a common sense approach. Change comes in silos and is usually done for window dressing rather than attacking root causes to barriers.
    Knowledge comes at a premium and is hoarded; not shared.

    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
