Former Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Herndon, VA
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA

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.

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