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

    Pros

    Flexible working - working from home is very easy and often encouraged No intimidating atmosphere - casual dress code with a very young, friendly workforce Big responsibilities - can take ownership of important projects that make a difference

    Cons

    The large size of the company causes technical errors to take a very long time to resolve - I often find myself chasing many members of the organisation to solve seemingly simple issues The role of an Associate Partner Manager is a very salesy role - involves a lot of cold calling which was not accurately advertised in the job description

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

    Pros

    Interesting & challenging role Above average salary for an account management role Very likeable new Director of FBA

    Cons

    More work than you can manage - sometimes you have to let people down Some senior members of staff are classic middle managers despite company culture built to try and avoid this Targets are not always fair across different teams and team members

    Advice to Management

    Keep spending time with junior members of staff who make up the majority of the team and understanding their day-to-day role

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

    Pros

    -Competitive salary - If you are incredibly driven you can force exposure to very senior leadership - Great potential role for people that enjoy sales - Opportunity to be exposed to some extremely talented people

    Cons

    - To get to the stage of having an intellectually challenging role, you will need to take on extra projects which amount to volunteering to do significantly more work outside of core role, which means a lot of late nights. This is also the only way to secure promotion - Arbitrary and extremely stretching targets - You will be driving growth on a very granular level - 'Beta male' dominated atmosphere - The competitive...

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Work with an absolutely fantastic team of talented hard working people. Genuinely fun place to work.

    Cons

    Individual performance is not measured correctly. Progression is a slow and bureaucratic process.

    Advice to Management

    Some could really need it with some formal management training. Training has got better but still poor overall.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun and friendly atmosphere, nice offices (London Holborn) and a relaxed manager if you meet your targets Finally a budget introduced for more social activities and lunches, before Amazon were very stingy and frugal Your working within one of the fastest growing companies in Retail - great to see your accounts rapidly improving and analysing their successes

    Cons

    Poor retention, so many people left during my 19months at the company from all levels, it meant a poor atmosphere of unhappiness Nothing is done to retain talent, continuously recruiting from outside instead of internal progression

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate not only on your own career but helping those on your team to progress in their role or outside in a new department, otherwise people become unchallenged

    Pros

    Ok pay, 28k for a first job. Very fun and intelligent colleagues. Opportunity to create meaningful projects.

    Cons

    Management is poor. They seem disinterested in people management and would rather do their analysis work. This leads to poor team morale. The general feeling is that we have been mis sold the job. It was pitched as a broad reaching role, with elements of consulting and analysis. The reality is that it is telephone sales and there are stringent targets that leave little time to do anything else. The attrition is appalling....

    Advice to Management

    Give opportunity for promotions and hire actual managers, not just analysts with no people skills.

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

    Pros

    - Expanding company, opportunities to see many sides of the business - There is a focus on ownership and bias for action, meaning you have the freedom to come up with an idea, build a business case and drive that idea to success - Great range of very smart people, great opportunity to learn and develop through them

    Cons

    - Not much formal training/ development offered - Slow promotion process. Have to be in the company for at least 18 months.
