Great Company, but, you need to fit into their culture

Software Development Engineer In Test (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

Pros- Amazing outlook with CEO as a Visionaire
- You could be proud of your contribution to the company as Amazon is now the world class
- Fast pacing, result oriented, open to communication and startup-alike setups
- Depending on where you come from, you can learn a lot from Amazon's unique value and culture, especially if you are starting your career here. Otherwise, you may have some culture shock, but still gain a lot from.
- If you can survive, you will be tough enough to survive anywhere else.
- Overall, Amazon is the great company to train yourself both technically and mentally; and to be "part" of your resume.

Cons- You may find the communication a little harsh as they can easily be critical and negative. So, basically, you need to be mentally strong to survive. Amazon hires a lot, but, many leaves only after just a year of serving or even less.
- I heard that if you are in upper management role, you feel very valued by the company, but, if you are on the other end, you would feel like being a someone who can easily be replaced. Amazon hires a lot and let go a lot. If you aren't let go, then, will experience the flood of workload to keep your job in tact.
- Benefits are in low end compared to even much smaller companies.
- If you are SDET unless you are lucky enough there aren't much career outlook as Amazon doesn't have QA practice in many departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementAmazon is not anymore of smaller company. You need to start value the employee more, so that the top notch engineers stay longer

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
