Current Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA
Current Employee - Software Engineer in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Top-notch engineering talent and excellent compensation

Cons

Very aggressive, not lifestyle-friendly, very focused on making money, sometimes feels like a Wall Street firm. Not for the long-term unless you can be aggressive day-in and day-out for years and years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Relax a bit, and respect people more

    Current Employee - Fulfillment Associate in Haslet, TX

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

    Pros

    -The benefits: All in all, the benefits are definitely fantastic.
    Holiday pay is awesome.
    Management is unbelievably down to earth and understanding to any issues that may occur. They are here to help you succeed as they say. I have never came across a job as helpful as Amazon in terms of caring for their employees.
    They are huge on safety policies and will not let you work in unsafe conditions/environments
    The opportunities to grow within this company is outstanding!

    Cons

    I have notice some cases of "favoritism" between management and employees.
    The rates can get difficult especially on those bad days.
    Sometimes, the system will glitch and I would have to really work tough during these glitches to keep my rate up.
