I worked at Amazon.com full-time for 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.

    Current Employee - Senior User Experience Designer in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    A company-wide focus on delivering the best possible customer experience is almost impossible to beat for UX designers.

    Cons

    Fast-paced and hectic. You'll either love the pace or it will kill you. Internal tools are poor and can make communication difficult and inefficient.
