Current Employee - Agency Office Assistant

I have been working at Amazon part-time for less than a year

Pros

You meet a lot of really helpful people here, make sure you communicate with everyone you meet during training and breaks. The more you know, the better you will perform.

Cons

Limited time for on-task communication opportunities.

Advice to Management

Encourage on-task communication with peers.

Current Employee - Senior Manager

I have been working at Dropbox full-time

Pros

- Company Benefits: commuter benefits, free food (amazing!), health care (paid for by company), events that get everyone together, gym (and wellness subsidies), unlimited vacation, I could go on! -... Culture (most leaders lead by example, everyone is super polite, people try to live the company values): I would say the best co-workers I've ever had. I love this people. They've become friends rather than colleagues. - Office (including the cafeteria) is by far the most beautiful place I've ever worked at

Cons

So why not 5 stars, you ask? Like others have mentioned, the company is growing, and with that come growing pains. They need to establish more processes to add the discipline needed with a big... company. We don't want bureaucracy, but in big companies, unfortunately that's needed. We sometimes hire leaders that talk a big game, but when it comes down to it, don't know how to execute. So it's a matter of finding our pace.

Advice to Management

Don't get blinded by "glitzzy" candidates. Look for style & substance. Don't be afraid to establish processes that will help us remain disciplined and accountable. Set a direction and stick to it.
