Current Employee - Quality Assurance Engineer II in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Excellent job satisfaction (coming from customer focus)
Very laid back dress code & atmosphere
Can bring my dog to work.
reimburse for parking
Lots of extremely smart people all around me
highering bar is very high which means people who make it in are

Cons

Can get hectic at times - meaning some weeks are difficult and long.
Some people who don't set boundaries can burn out fast
Turn over can be pretty high - usually due to moving on and up to better positions, but sometimes due to burn out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be aware and take steps to combat burn out so the people who are raising the bar are able to continue working at the company.
Keep doing everything else just as well as it is.

    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer I in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Software Development Engineer I in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Challenging. Innovative. Iterates to perfection. Customer Centric. Opportunities to roll up your sleeves and get work done.

    Cons

    Bureaucratic. Overburdens employees. Cheap, not frugal. No direction. Got to figure out everything on your own. I can't imagine having less work-life balance. Good money but awful work/life balance, hours, pressure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire for the work needed rather than assign work to whomever is available. HR needs improvement. No ethics!
