Current Employee - Account Manager in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Numerous opportunities, growing company. Great place to work if you want experience in various fields. Innovative company, still operates like a startup

Cons

Work life balance can be a challenge in some roles and teams, especially during the holiday season. The start up culture demands employees to be hands on.

    Good place to work, can be stressful, sometimes not much on structure, got to invent it yourself.

    Current Employee - Systems Engineer II in Seattle, WA
    Current Employee - Systems Engineer II in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Good insurance benefits, good stock options. Work hours are flexible, WFH times are possible. Nice pay, extremely intelligent people to work around. Company paid happy hour every two weeks (Yes with EToH). If you make a mistake, own up to it and correct it without penalties to your career.

    Cons

    You write it, you support it (On call to fix it too). Small teams = lots of on call time. Just getting the System Engineer support model in place to take the on call for the developers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, loosen up the purse strings on occasion.

    Current Employee - Warehouse Associate in New Castle, DE

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

    Pros

    Good pay & Good benefits
    Respectful treatment and appreciation of employees that is unique compared to other companies in their industry (and really other companies in general)

    Cons

    At Fulfillment Centers the warehouse work is very physically difficult
    Amazon has high standards for work (rate) that not everyone can meet, even when they are trying

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall I am very satisfied with the Amazon management, I would suggest that they continue to show lots of appreciation for their employees and continue asking how they can do better.
