Current Employee - Technical Program Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Everyone is inventing all the time so there isn't a chance for the job to get dull or mundane.

I work with amazingly bright and supportive people so there is always someone around to teach me what I don't know.

Cons

The constant change makes it difficult to predict how long it will take things to get done and that creates tremendous levels of stress.

There is never time to take a breath.

    Pros

    Plenty of hours if you are in need of working hours no question. Lots of moving around, I enjoy moving while I work.

    Cons

    Work / Life ballance. You can't really do anything else if you work here. Working two jobs is almost impossible and making plans in advance to do other things is also almost impossible as they can force mandatory overtime on you at the very last second.
    I question how some of the supervisor staff got to their position at times. Also have seen unhappy ''problem solvers'' throw things and behave all around ''Ghetto'' at my location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You're doing alright. Definately provide decent work to those who really need it which is great. I'm not sure if it's possible but giving the workers more flexibility with their shifts would make this place perfect. Overtime hours set in stone and given to us on the fly is annoying for employees who are also working other places. Not that big of a deal for those who use this as their primary work though.
