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.

    I have been working at Amazon.com

    Pros

    Good money. Easy hiring. Keeps you active. Work independently. Decent benefits.

    Cons

    The strictness of maintaining an ever-increasing stow rate is challenging and a lot of the fulfillment centers show favoritism among management.

    Former Employee - Brand Ambassador in Long Beach, CA

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company pays very well and the coworkers are very exciting people. I love the culture and the company values. I felt valued by the management greatly. It is just a great company to work for, but not much room for advancement if you aren't from a top-tier university.

    Cons

    The interview is a little whacky and unorganized. Leadership is shaky and sometimes unorganized. The deadlines are very strict and timely. Lots of pressure from cohorts and upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more college grads
