Cons

Where to start?
- Overworked

-Manger doesnt care how you feel

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Managers need to care for their team members and should try to motivate them rather than micro-managing to an extent of eating habits. Cmon!! Some of the managers here are just due to the experience with no quality education or good skills. where is your HIRE RIGHT ?

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

    Pros

    - Competitive compensation
    - Acceptable work/life balance
    - Career opportunities OUTSIDE of Digital Products very promising,... if you are allowed to transfer out

    Cons

    Please keep in mind that these comments apply to Digital Products in Seattle working with Lab126.
    - Complete lack of leadership, vision or direction from "leaders" in Lab126
    - Minimal to no feedback, promotion opportunity or decent, constructive review from management (again, management being in Lab126)
    - No career advancement opportunity. Peers in the Sunnyvale/Lab126 office will have significant advantage just for being "local" to management
    - HR in Lab126 is aware of issues in her organization and chooses not to do anything about the problems, effectively sacrificing and derailing careers of very capable individuals. HR and management in Seattle seem to have their hands tied or chose to look the other way. VERY unfortunate!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept that you are brilliant engineers and take individual contributor roles. You, the company and the products you work on will truly excel. Leave management (or individuals as well as programs) to capable individuals. You are not a decent manager and definitely not a leader!
    If you don't like your teams in Seattle, do not sacrifice them in OLRs. Instead, work with them (or better yet, allow a good manager or a decent leader) to work with them to transfer to other parts of the organization so they can deliver value and you don't have to work with them.
    Yes, you have talent. No, you are not a leader!

    I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Company pays for insurance. The warehouse is amazing. They will have robots. Nice break rooms... free coffee, your so tired you can't enjoy any of it.

    Cons

    This place treats you like a robot!!! Runs as if your in the military. I would never recommend anyone to work here. Slave labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lay off your numbers. Treat your employee's right. Work faster...faster...faster...
