    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    - True agile development
    - Great option as a first company. Work with some of smartest people you can find.
    - No team hierarchy. Everyone is heard and their opinions are valued.

    Cons

    - Expectation to deliver in a small time frame leading to hacky solutions rather than long term maintainable solutions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the developers. They may not know about the monetizing part but they know what the customers want.

    Pros

    Responsibility is shared out and taken seriously, as a customer service agent you are empowered to take care of the customer

    Cons

    Long work hours are the norm, be prepared to separate your personal self from the customer's perception of you as verbal abuse does occur but is not common.
