Pros

You get to learn lots of technologies very quickly. Very fast release cycles. Fast paced culture.

    Former Employee - Vendor Manager in Seattle, WA

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people are intense and intelligent. They like to have fun, and they work hard. Kindle has autonomy to do a lot of things first, so innovation is rampant.

    Cons

    The team you are on makes all the difference. If you are on a team that is not well-managed, you are in trouble.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fight for the ones that you find valuable. Sometimes that means allowing people to transfer early.
