Pros

Amazon is great company if you like the fast paced environment. Company tend to focus on what really matters and that is customer experience. People are solution oriented more than problem focused.

Cons

Employees don't necessarily get any perks (not even Prime), long hours are expected. The work/job satisfaction can vary dramatically based on the team you are in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Treat employee as your internal customers.

    Pros

    Amazon builds amazing product and Bezos is a genius.

    Cons

    Mid Level Management and BD for AWS is based on egos and face time. They do not participate until they sense success then they push the actual contributor aside and literally take over. Mid level style is very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the political, ego centric behavior. Encourage Mid Level to improve management style that encourages risk taking and outside the box.
