Pros

Ich habe viel von Amazon gelernt. Es gibt dort viel Innovation, und ich könnte mir jederzeit vorstellen, wieder hinzugehen.

I have learned a lot from Amazon. There is a lot of innovation there and I could image to go back any time.

Cons

Es gab eine Sache, die mir überhaupt nicht gefallen hat. Es war der Leistungsbewertungsprozess und besonders der Abgleich, der von einigen Leuten durchgeführt wurde, die keine Ahnung von den Teammitgliedern einer Gruppe hatten.

There is one thing that I did not like at all. It is the performance reviews process and specially the calibration that was done by some people that had no idea of the team members of a group.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Nicht so viel Zeit mit Leistungsbewertungen verbringen.

Don't spend so much time with performance reviews

    Pros

    Mit intelligenten Personen arbeiten.

    Innovative kundenorientierte Kultur.

    Hervorragender Geschäftsführer. Ein Platz, wo man gut sehen kann, wie eine langfristige Strategie effektiv in Betrieb gebracht wird.

    Mit der neusten Technologie der Branche arbeiten.

    Gutes System für Leistungsmanagement.

    Kompetente Personen werden hier wirklich ausgebildet.

    Apolitische Haltung wird belohnt, offene Kommunikation, Selbstkritik artikulieren, Informationen teilen.

    working with smart people
    innovative and cusotmer-oriented culture
    great CEO - great place to see how a long-term strategy is put in action effectively
    work with the latest technology in the industry
    good performance management system:
     - good people are really developed here
    - rewards un-political behaviour, open communication, being vocally self-critical, sharing information.

    Cons

    Nicht für jedermann: schnelles Tempo, verlangt gleichzeitig analytische Vorgehensweise und starke Handlungsorientierung von allen. Es ist nicht der beste Platz, um die Hände in den Schoß zu legen.

    Not for everybody: fast-paced, requires everyone to be analytical and show strong bias for action at the same time. Not the right place to to sit back and relax.

    Pros

    La plupart des procédures en place fonctionnent comme prévu et il y a peu de bureaucratie. Il y a aussi de la place pour les nouvelles idées et les propositions, ainsi que de nombreux outils et ressources en self-service.

    Most processes in place do work as you would expect and there is little bureaucracy. There is also room for new ideas and proposals as well as many self-service tools and resources.

    Cons

    Le coaching n'est pas aussi bon que ce qu'on pourrait attendre. Quand vous entrez, vous devez pratiquement vous débrouiller seul. C'est à vous d'identifier le modèle et les opportunités. La motivation dépend aussi de vous. Amazon investira dans vos idées si vous pouvez prouver qu'elles sont bonnes et le prouvez avec de vraies données, ce qui signifie que vous devez travailler à vos initiatives durant vos week-ends ou temps libre.

    Coaching is not as good as you would expect. Once you enter you are basically on your own. It is up to you to identify a model and the opportunities. Motivation is also up to you. Amazon will invest in your ideas if you can prove they are worthy and back them with real data which means that your initiatives are something you will have to work on during your weekends or spare time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plus de coaching et d'orientation pour la carrière seraient appréciés

    Some more coaching and career guidance would be appreciated.
