Former Employee - Project Manager in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Some very smart people pass through. The pay seems good but will be selling your whole life to them.

Cons

Mean-spirited, fearful environment. Unless you are one of the suck-ups, expect to be bullied. Anyone with any self respect usually runs out the door. Especially if they ever want to see their kids again. Like others have said it's an online Walmart, without seeing the elderly, and pregnant women humiliated on a daily basis.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You will continue to make money because customers only care about price. Find a better way to make a living than helping to abuse people by making a deal with this devil. Why is Amazon never on the best places to work list?

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

    Pros

    Fast Paced, Constantly Innovating, rewarding for those who put in the effort. Has great benefits and decent pay for the immediate area. Can quickly move up!

    Cons

    Some low morale, has serious problems with communication. Can promote Safety, Quality, then Safety, although productions needs seems to trump these procedures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your heads up and obsess over your associates.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Interns get to work on their own project. They make you feel like a full-time engineer and will give you a lot of responsibility.

    Cons

    Benefits are great, but not relative to other large companies such as Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.
