Pros

Company is fast paced and very dynamic. You are afforded the ability to work with some very intelligent people and some very hard working people. The opportunity for growth is huge as the company is constantly growing.

Cons

You are at the mercy of the customer/business needs. This is only a con if you are not willing to buy into the company and share a common goal. There is a high probability of working nights and weekends.

Advice to Management

So far I am very satisfied with my managers. I have heard of less competent managers, but I have had no business interaction with them.

    Pros

    Challenging environment, which is changing from an enterprise level Biz dev environment into full on call center

    Cons

    Very political, where you feel like a cog in a machine. The management seems to think that tenured employees are very replaceable. Lots of political nonsense which creates a general lack of morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the attrition, focus on development of your employees. We're not replaceable and the overall work environment is getting steadily worse with each employee that leaves.

    Pros

    Lots of very smart talented people around Opportunity to make products used by millions around the world Working on new, interesting technologies Startup-ish and agile, far less bureaucracy than in other big companies

    Cons

    Developers are not valued as much as in other places Agile often turns into "ridiculously disorganized" Raises are relatively low Worst benefits I've ever seen

    Advice to Management

    When you and recruiters complain about how hard it is to find good people consider that many 'good people' simply don't apply or respond to Amazon. Mainly because of the bad rep it accrued due to issues mentioned above. Start treating developers better and improve the benefits.
