    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA
    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best Pay, Great leadership principles and there are several departments that are doing great. I wish they let people learn and grow as they boast about "hire and develop" the best talent

    Cons

    Narrow minded executive team. HR has absolutely no culture and can talk any crap. There is no scope for growth for the externally hired candidates. They don't respect experience. A 5 yr experienced Amazonian would be a manager and 25 yrs experiened new hire will report him irrespective of talent. THERE IS CULTURE

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand the roles and their responsiblities. If you got no clarity on what you need, please take advice from Jeff and don't make Amazon a worst place to work.

    Former Employee - Operations Leadership Intern in San Bernardino, CA
    Former Employee - Operations Leadership Intern in San Bernardino, CA

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

    Pros

    Lots of freedom to explore projects, good overview of how the entire fulfillment process works, people were nice and helpful

    Cons

    Very little guidance from management as far as giving me specific things to work on, lots of employee turnover and transitions, forced to find my own work and teach myself a lot of things if I wanted to learn more than the basics and try to make actual improvements.
