Amazon - For the fast and furious

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsAt Amazon the perfect is not the enemy of the good. It's a place where one can produce good work quickly along with a plan for incremental improvement that moves toward perfection.
Lots of resources means that although Amazon may be behind in an area; when the business sees that something is important, it can ramp quickly to the status of parity and even as a pace setter. Lots of ownership. Lots of latitude to resolve ambiguity in creative ways. RSUs are super! Relocation! Cash bonus at signing! Royal treatment during recruiting!

ConsSiloed. Managment by project sometimes makes people managers of project managers. As a result, it can be hard to get support for personal development.
The pace of work is often too fast to deliver the "highest quality". So rework is often required.
Leadership principles are excellent as a guide, but could use improvement in consistent execution. More time should be spent developing people and modeling the leadership principles and core competencies.

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