Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Seattle, WA

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

Pros

From outsider's perspective Amazon seems to be an innovative company focusingon improving customer experience and offering more affordable products.

Cons

1) unrealistic business targets
2) inexperienced middle management
3) no support to remove roadblocks and, as a result, no work life balance
4) sometimes no respect in communication
5) relatively uncompetitive salary, the stock compensation is a joke given 3-4 year vesting period and 1 year employee retention

Advice to ManagementAdvice

in 2-3 years it will be challenging to attract talent, if such a trend continues.

    Pros

    I really enjoyed leading projects with lots of moving parts. You had to coordinate with many teams and moved at blinding speed.

    Cons

    Management is often incompetent they are unable to make a decision. And blow hundreds of thousands with making poor decisions then redoing it all over. The processes are often changed before they ever get settled in and with the quick turn around of managers they keep going back to an old drawing board.

    I had a vindictive manager who went out of his way to create issue with all of his employees he was a inexperienced, forgetful, piece of scum. And the worst part is hr backed him on all his make believe stories.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make a decision before your contractors are locked into a contractual agreement.

    Pros

    Better than average hourly rates; work/life balance depends on you; a most bodacious experience; always maintain a positive attitude.

    Cons

    It really is hard work. You are expected to perform within certain parameters which are not unreal expectations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remain positive and proactive for your employees. Remember THEY make YOU look good.
