I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Industry-leading scale. Amazon builds and operates some of the largest computing systems in the world.

Cons

Comparatively low pay, long hours, and little respect for the engineers who make the business run. Amazon views engineers as fungible and consumable.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Work with smart, driven colleagues - Laid back dress code - Company name

    Cons

    - Spotty management - Due to rapid growth many have been promoted to management without management experience - Lack of internal training on processes, policies, culture - Very political. One's success is not about performance - it's playing the game

    Advice to Management

    Leadership needs to address the dysfunctional culture that exists within the data center groups (commonly referred to as the trailer trash of Amazon). Many unprofessional behaviors exist that violate the company Leadership Principles and Code of Conduct. Sooner or later the bottom line is going to be impacted.
