    Pros

    If you are a SDE the company will do their best to keep you. Value of RSUs increasing.

    Cons

    Anyone else isn't valued. There is an expectation to work 70+ hour weeks. Promotion to senior levels is rare, company instead hires from outside and this is destroying the company culture. The leadership principles used to guide the company but with all the new hires they are losing their value.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up...it takes great employees to keep you at #1 in customer service. Take time to train new managers on what the leadership principles really mean and how to apply them.

    I worked at Amazon.com as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun group
    Lots to do, you'll not get bored
    Secret stuff to work on

    Cons

    Walls between test and PM's. I didn't feel very welcome to provide feedback that wasn't strictly test related.
    I was only there briefly, but I know people who are still there and they work a lot of hours! (Work/life balance is terrible)
