Current Employee - Recruting Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

I feel very empowered, have great work-life balance, great unique culture, I am recognized for my contributions both financially and by the respect given by my leaders and peers. Amazon.com is a company that you can believe in and feel proud to be a part of.

Cons

I think that we need more creativity in our benefits. I think we could do a better job in employment branding.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Understand the competition for great employees and continue to strive to have a strong employee value proposition.

    Former Employee - Product Manager in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Product Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Never dull. Fast paced with plenty of things to do.
    Great role and responsibilities.
    Truly cares about customer benefits.
    People respect and listen to you if you are smart.
    Great brand value on your resume.

    Cons

    Fast paced. Takes a toll on work-life balance.
    As they have very small teams there is not enough fair distribution of responsibilities. Some people get overburdened and burnt out.
    Not enough mentorship. You either make it or you are asked to leave. No body cares about investing in people and making them successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More mentorship. Invest in people and make them successful.
    Don't overburden employees. Hire more people instead.
