    Pros

    + Strongly customer driven
    + Utilize the best in class technology to build solutions, with keeping a keen eye on timelines and agility
    + Work with the best of talent on the planet or increasingly diverse and hard problems
    + High pace of innovation and delivery, so as to meet customer needs the fastest
    + Excellent opportunities to work independently, have huge impact and drive your career growth
    + Good amount of internal mobility

    Cons

    - Amazon deals with a lot of baggage that is mainly driven by external perceptions. Amazon is a large company and therefore not perfect. In fact I do not believe perfect exists. But nevertheless, if you cut through all the noise, we are running a successful business that continuously provides immense customer value. We work hard to attain that trust and it can be hard. But we all share the vision and help each other to get there.

    Pros

    Seems the company is doing more to get “diverse” yet not enough

    Cons

    Company must work more to make their work force more diverse. Fact there are 37 filled Senior Manager L7/L8 roles in the RME team 29 of those or 78% are occupied by White Male AND the RME team continues to hire more White Males to those roles. Sad...

    Advice to Management

    Do better for your work force...loyal employees get tired too of BS. Have an open discussion about this, protecting your people. Everyone knows what’s going on yet no one says a word...this needs to come from top to bottom.

    I have been working at Amazon part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    On top of breaks and sometimes yhey bring in food for the crew. Great pay good hours and oppurtuniies to move up

    Cons

    Most of my managers are cool and friendly and like you. Some of them are literally idiots who make you question if they graduated highschool. For example i was mot paid for three weeks straight after speakig to 4 managers. Eventually get the right one and another manager passes my issues off to him.

    Advice to Management

    Learn your job. Had one manager tell me no electronics on the floor because i was playing music for all my coworkers and we were having a good time working hard but then i see him walking around on his cell phone like an idiot. When i ask him to help me he doesnt know its like they hired him because they had to meet a quota.
