They treat you really well, but there's still politics

User Experience Designer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

ProsGood compensation, talented people, pretty interesting projects that impact millions of people on a regular basis. You can see your changes have dramatic affects on the companies bottom line.

ConsYou don't do very much visual design. Amazon makes so many VERY small changes that it gets to be a bit boring if you're more interested in DESIGN instead of min maxing the smallest details with web labs and A/B testing.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake more risks and innovate on a larger scale without being so timid and immediately rolling back changes when a small population gets upset because they dont understand how useful a change will be.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
