Great people, great reputation

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsThey take care of their employees with good benefits and often stock options. The Amazon motto of "Work hard, Have fun, Make history" are always displayed, and they make an effort to create a productive atmosphere that is both serious and lighthearted.

ConsThe large scale of this company can sometimes be daunting. The interview process was exhausting and tough. Be sure to follow up. It also can feel like they cycle through temporary workers quite often. So if you are full-time and the other associates around you keep changing, it can be a bit frustrating and disorienting.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
