    Current Employee - Recruiting Coordinator in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Other companies love to hire people with Amazon experience as they know they are overworked but smart and know what they are doing.

    You'll never work with smarter people.

    Corporate is dog-friendly.

    Cons

    Zero Work/Life balance. Instead of hiring 1 person to do the job of 1 person, they hire 1 person to do the job of 3 people. It helps eliminates a potential for layoffs, but doing 3 full-time jobs is absurd.

    Internal promotions require tons of red tape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at your employees as potential hires - if you would hire them on at a level higher than they are currently, expect someone else to give them that promotion if you won't.
