    Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how to develop software, and how to support it. Learn what it means to be customer focused.

    Cons

    You have two choices: Burn out with over-work, or play politics to save your skin. Promotions are based on favoritism in many cases.
    If you complain to HR about abuse from upper management, be sure they will rat on you and collude to destroy you. Leave before it gets to that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is good, and good benefits. Fun working with books and dvd's. I liked working the three 12 hours shifts over the weekend.

    Cons

    Most people get terminated. Constant complaints from management, Discriminate against the older worker. Security is bad in the parking lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People need permanent full time work and be treated fairly. Quit showing favorites towards certain workers.
