Amazing business model. Under values training, people development, work life balance and goal setting.

Pros

Tremendously smart, capable well intentioned people.

Cons

No emphasis on teamwork, people development or work life balance.
"You're smart, you figure it out and let us know when you're done"

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow down from day to day metric management to focus on training your front-line and middle managers on how to develop people and processes

    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)

    Pros

    You are given the ability to think and voice your opinions freely. Everyone around you is extremely talented and very intelligent

    Cons

    You are always replaceable and sometimes you can get lost in the corporate ranks.
