    Current Employee - Product Manager in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Good bonuses and stock plans. Ability to move around the company quite freely and change your career path if desired is a big plus.

    Cons

    Kindle has a high burn-out rate due to terrible work-life balance. No training is ever really provided when you first start. Amazon likes to say "you need to show a bias for action" as an excuse for never providing any sort of training to help you ramp up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop promoting people to people management roles for their work as non-people managers. People management is something that needs to be learned, and just being good at your job doesn't mean you'll be a good people manager, but Amazon has clearly missed this boat.
