    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Amazon is a very dynamic and innovative company, we are constantly asking how to do things better and simpler. Respect for diversity, the company works hard on being inclusive and having spaces for all people, lots of respect for others and their way of viewing the world. Lots of possibility for growth. Employee experience is always is a focus. Leadership listens and acts on feedback.

    Cons

    Although there is possibility for growth, promotions are difficult to get, there is a whole process that is secretive and unclear on how to achieve. As in all companies, it depends on your manager, if you have a bad manager your experience is going to be different. Stress level is super high. You can never be good enough

    Advice to Management

    In general management is great at Amazon, there is respect for direct reports and their best experience is always in mind. From an operational perspective the drive for results is clear and a focus that they should always keep, while always balancing with the needs of the people. Support for managers, recognition for good work, and compensation and level increases should be done on time to avoid attrition.

    I worked at Amazon

    Pros

    You will never be challenged as much, move as fast or fail as often as you will here. Commitment to excellence is very high

    Cons

    Recognition is non-existent. Development is non-existent. You feel like a commodity versus worthy of being invested in

    Advice to Management

    Attack the process not the people needs to happen at all levels. Constructive balanced feedback goes a long way
