Pros

professional career growth great work place good camaraderie with fellow colleagues career development advice and good work ethics everybody is pushing for the same goals centered on the customer (big difference with Microsoft). Promotions are gated by well written promo guidelines with focus on delivery, and impact, not on internal politics. People spend less time campaigning for their own promotions (seen cons). Much better healthy relationships between teams/orgs/people. TOP performers are heavily compensated.”

Cons

Less levels than at MS, hence promotions are farther apart. Most individual contributor job families only have 4 levels (junior, mid, senior, principal) with very few people in the upper two levels. Big raise on promotion happen less frequently. Average raises for the average people. Most people from MS usually come at one level down (principal -> senior, senior lead to MGR III).

    Pros

    There is lots of opportunity for career advancement if you are willing to put in the work and study Amazon's core leadership principles. The fast paced days makes time more bearable. The benefits may be a pretty penny out of your pay, but it is worth it when you need them. Stock benefits are a bit plus. Your voice may not be much as one sometimes, but Amazon makes sure it hears their associates in numerous ways such as associate surveys and round table meetings.

    Cons

    The vigorous work schedule messes with your life outside of work. The pay may be nice once the check arrives, but there isn't much time to enjoy it. They also do not have much help for single parents without spending the rest of your paycheck, which can lead to times of turmoil at home.

    Advice to Management

    Step up your engagement and really hear what your associates have to say. Just a thought.
