Current Employee - Designer in Seattle, WA

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

Pros

Great place to learn and grow. Extremely smart people around every corner. I have learned more in the past 1.5 years, than I have in 9 years elsewhere.

Cons

Very competitive environment. There is not a lot of collaboration. A lot of teams are doing the same work, but very few ever know because there is not a lot of communication across teams / verticals.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Share, nurture and grow a more collaborative environment.

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

    Pros

    Creative and innovative company. Eventually they'll need to make a profit!

    Cons

    A lot of arrogant employees who drank the kool-aide and really believe they're the best of the best. They're not! Lots of passive/aggressive back stabbing. Hyper critical feedback environment but with no true objective examples. Most is very subjective. Like that's constructive. Managers compete against each other at all levels across the organization therefore they tend to sacrifice their team in order to look good. Not at all motivating to work hard when that tends to permeate the culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a profit. It's easy to operate and grow when your shareholders only care about stock growth. That won't last forever.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company values, customer centric.

    Cons

    Poor environment for employees, too huge ego's leaves no room for advancement. Discriminate personal views run rampant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some better blind investigations into your "salaried" staff on a local level in all departments, I think you will be shocked to find out what is really going on in your "Non-Seattle" locations.
