The associates you work with are amazing!! It is a fun and rewarding place to work.

Some days you work long hours, specially over peak season, there is a lot of turnover with the tier 1 associates and do not like amazons point policy.

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

    Pros

    At 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!

    Cons

    Siloed. 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.

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

    Pros

    Good manager, nice enough people, ambitious company, interesting experience

    Cons

    Relocation mandatory, a lot of corporate platitudes, middle management turnover was alarming

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Investigate ways to either better retain middle management team or more effectively handle turnover.
