I worked at Amazon.com full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

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.

    Pros

    The stock is not bad, I guess. And you can say, I'm working at Amazon.

    Cons

    It's more like a business company compared to other giants like Google or Facebook.

    Pros

    Great pay. Good signing bonus and stock options.

    Cons

    Design is undervalued. Great visual design is not a priority. No room to grow as a designer. Designs are determined by developers and engineers.

    No opinion of CEO
