    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The people in the org are generally smart The pay is decent. Blah, blah, blah.

    Cons

    Limited growth opportunities and lack of coaching/feedback (I'm identified as very high potential and yet I have no coaching even after asking for it --- seems weird) Lack of vision and constantly changing vision from org's senior management. Lots of management churn in org (on 5th manager within 2 years). Don't feel intellectually challenged by work.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    Amazon has always been a busy and fulfilling place to work, the technical innovation provides employees to a platform to be involved in shaping the future of cloud services. This allows employees insight into the company's core and provides opportunities to continually grow and move roles in sync with their interests.

    Cons

    Things move fast and teams grow, it can be difficult to keep up with the pace of change especially when that dictates that teams have to reshape to better serve the customer.

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

    Pros

    1. good quality work 2. really smart people (compared to other companies) 3. less bureaucracy 4. Fast and efficient decision-making 5. Generally not a huge variance in quality of candidate at a particular level

    Cons

    1. Managers not well equipped to handle reportees. 2. Steps being taken in this direction but spot employees about to burn out and help them address stress - saw quite a few people suffer because of this.

    Advice to Management

    Overall doing a great job and keep it up. Focus a little bit on people side of things to improve reputation as an employer.

    Pros

    Training thus sqeezed to minimum time Plenty of opportunoties for peole enjoying office politics Nice new programs providing good opportunities when they start

    Cons

    Unfunctional processes that are expexted to be followed Management takes great pride on their 20+ years at the company Atmosphere more of an government agency than dynamic business Internal development always seen moore important than customer deliveries Loads of internal middle management

    Advice to Management

    Customer first Just years at the company doesn't make one an expert Get rid off the mid-management that provides no value to customers just brings up the expencess and complicates the work
