Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Seattle, WA
Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

* Very smart people across the board
* Endless opportunities to work on challenging problems
* Ability to work on many different types of products without changing companies (e.g. operations support, front-end, digital, web services, developer tools, etc.)
* Good stock performance (over past few years)

Cons

* Location - South Lake Union (in Seattle) is hip and clean, but also expensive (e.g. lunches, parking, etc.)
* Hours - employees more often than not have to work above and beyond to meet senior management expectations (leads to bad work:life balance - i.e. not good for family life)
* Politics

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize employee talent and accomplishments more.
