    Current Employee - Staff Accountant in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Interesting and dynamic environment with a lot of driven smart people. Plenty of opportunity for learning and expanding one's skills and definitely not a boring place to work. There are opportunities for international travel and changing teams every couple of years is encouraged.

    Cons

    Long hours. People change here very quickly, either because they leave, move to different teams or join from other teams. Perks not comparable to other tech companies, no reimbursement for CPA

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Competative pay Good benefits A few decent people still work there.

    Cons

    Shady operation- when something doesn't work, they don't look at the broken pieces, they blame the people rather than work with them to correct the problem.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play the double jeopardy game (have a corrective discussion with the employee then turn around and write them up for the same issue that had already been discussed and corrected). Also, quit changing policies just because you're not getting the results you want. Give the current policies a chance to take hold and results to happen.

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

    Pros

    Excellent pay. Provides good exercise and opportunity to work individually and as a team. Friendly, mixed staff members, great for making connections.

    Cons

    No time for 15 min breaks due to tight airport security, long walk to canteen, queues for food and locker room access. Very high 3* warning system that is extremely easy to fail, even for the best, most hardworking employees. Full time permanent or not, there's no company loyalty. 1 star warning for (literally) being a single second over your clock in when you come back from break, which you will get for having to...

    I have been working at Amazon

    Pros

    Excelente trato a los empleados, flexibilidad de horarios, crecimiento basado 100% en resultados, buen ambiente laboral, disponibilidad para aprender cosas diferentes siempre

    Cons

    Está en Santa Fe y el tráfico no ayuda, sin embargo existe la posibilidad de hacer home office. Otro punto es que no ofrecen vales y eso siempre es un excelente incentivo de las buenas empresas en nuestro país

    Advice to Management

    Manténganse así, es un excelente lugar para trabajar y cumplir tus metas profesionales sin tener que sacrificar las personales. Falta un poco negociar algunos beneficios, pero sabemos que cosas muy buenas vienen en camino.
