Pros

In most places challenging problems with motivated and competent colleagues working toward the common goal of making the most customer centric company in the world. Good rewards for implementing good ideas quickly. Culture encourages collaboration and access to intellectual resources. Competitive benefits with stock grants that reward pay for performance. The pace is usually exhilarating

Cons

Like most dynamic software companies the need for speed and impatience with failure biases work-life balance heavily to work at all technical levels evidenced in increases rates of fatigue and irritability. The pace reduces the time to recover. Q4 can be exhausting.

Advice to Management

Pay attention to average fatigue and irritability. See if reducing the average increases productivity.

    Pros

    Customer service is very important to Amazon. They are very productive and is willing to do whatever to get the job done.

    Cons

    Some managers out there are not respectful of you or the work. They need more experienced workers for management.
