Former Employee - Software Development Engineer II

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

People that know what they're doing. Lots of interesting projects floating around.

Cons

Constant pressure to get more done faster. Oncall shifts. Being pulled in different directions by different projects. Constantly having to trouble shoot systems you don't fully understand without time to learn it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They're a natural way developers communicate and work with each other when they're collaborating on a project. Don't break that up because someone gave you a deadline.

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

    Pros

    Believes in celebrating success of others and recognizing those who have succeeded to different level within the company

    Cons

    Among some of the Area Manager there is huge amounts of favoritism. This company also base your performance on numbers. Looking at someone is a good form of constructive feedback, however this kills morale among associates and push many to find of places for employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More communication on pending change in the company that will or could effect associates directly. Find a more constructive avenue for increasing morale among associates, because performance rates are producing high turnover which sends a negative message to prospective associates and the community.
