    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Seattle, WA

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good environment. Good culture. Comp pretty good. Narrative process is good and helps make things transparent. Business is extremely strong. Exciting and lots of upside and opportunity. Exec Mgmt is good team.

    Cons

    No work life balance. They work you very hard. i have been working 20+ years at major tech companies and this is the most hours i have ever worked - BY FAR. Employees care more about doing a half baked job and doing it themselves, versus working cross team. Two teams will be doing the same thing on same project because they want to take "ownership". No teamwork mentality. no free cokes - really??

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on team work and less on individual accomplishment. Also fix the comp system so that you aren't a drone with a specific number.
