Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Looks good on your resume

Cons

Annual culling of bottom 25% results in a really nasty competitiveness...e.g., nice to your face then stab you in the back. Extremely poor work/life balance. Difficult to move up career ladder.

Doesn't Recommend
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Great benefits and friendly upper management. Loved the enviroment and people always seemed happy to be there. It was a great time and experience.

    Cons

    Long hours with overnight shifts. Not the best for work and life balance, but still manageable. Some of the employees were not the best to be around, but it will be like that anywhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work and make sure to relate to lower level employees
