Current Employee - Software Development Engineer I in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Lots of exciting development going on with continual growth.

Cons

On-call process: most SDEs take turns going "on-call" and carry a pager, often having to respond to system failures in the middle of the night.

    Great place to work but slow advancement

    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Top notch people, constant innovation and a brand that plays an increasingly important role in peoples' lives. People like being a part of a company that customers genuinely love.

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, ho-hum benefits, path to promotion is murky and slow. People are so heads-down there is little time to address structural problems with orgs/straetgies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a hard look at why so many good people leave and try to fix those problems.
