Featured Review

Current Contractor - Strategist

I have been working at New York Times for more than a year

Pros

- Great work/life balance - Flexible with work from home with certain teams

Cons

- Difficult to switch teams - Difficult to move from contract to permanent worker

Current Employee - DCO Tech L3

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

Pros

Resourceful training program, for those who seek to learn. Meaningful work relative to position/role. Great team interaction as well as independent working environments. Numerous development pathways... that are accessible and obtainable. Full circle company inclusion. Supportive and engaging leadership. Day to day work can be as immersive and challenging as you would like to make it. For those who have a sense of self-direction and enjoy learning with an ambition to progress, I highly recommend.

Cons

Honestly, "Con" is an individual choice. Limits are self-imposed to either restrict potential or they can be elevated to raise mindful awareness of the power you have to move mountains. It is a... choice. Of course there are rules to every game but if you don't like the rules... well then, play another game.

Advice to Management

Continue to walk the path of servant leadership. During my brief experience thus far (7 months, starting as green) I have witnessed a handful of promotions within the DCO team and at least 4... promotions from the DCO team onto other teams outside of DCO. This systemic progress was not merely a process of management approval but rather an engaging and encouraging leadership committed to seeking personal success through enabling others to be successful. It's not Amazon, it's Amazing.
