    Current Contractor - Smx Associate in Bellevue, WA
    Current Contractor - Smx Associate in Bellevue, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, lots of overtime, the chance to contribute to rapidly evolving process changes, resume builder, Management is humble and supportive. Opportunity for advancement despite age. Exiting environment, you feel like you're a part of something big, and its the only job I've ever been exited to wake up and go to.

    Cons

    Clearly a temporary workforce. Multiple hire/fire cycles throughout the year, usually in correlation. Lots of bending/kneeling on a daily basis, to the point that you either get promoted or wish to quit. Limited visibility when it comes to your own performance. Selfish work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Protect your veterans who're selflessly loyal to the companies core values, these individuals work hard and are an invaluable to this company, yet most often than not are unappreciated. Help your employees understand rate and how exactly it works, there seems to be quite a bit of confusion.

    I have been working at Amazon.com as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pays well. Lots of big things happening. Stable. More flexibility than other big companies

    Cons

    Office politics. Some arrogant and ignorant non-developer onboard. (Designers, Product Managers etc.) They say it's fast pace, but it's not. There's always something which makes no sense slows you down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of hiring those consultants or business man, promo developers to product managers!
