Worst work environment for non-tech people. They do not provide much growth opportunity.

No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

You are always surrounded by the smartest engineers and skilled project managers. Very innovative and you are always asked to come up with new ideas and improvement.

Cons

No work-life balance, and the management does not show interest in your work-life balance. I have reported to 6 different managers so far, and only 1 of them showed sincere interest in the employees well-being.

Advice to Management

You need to offer growth opportunity for those who are 'home grown' long time contributing Amazonians. I have seen many long time contributors (mainly people with non-tech positions) who end up being managed out but provided very little opportunity to continue contributing due to the company's very fast growth in the past 5 years. Even when you manage out, show some respect to them. They worked hard for you to establish the basic of Amazon. Pay more attention to their employees well-being too.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (Less than a 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.
