    I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Very smart engineers, work on products that are adopted world wide within months, decent work life balance

    Cons

    Level promotions are hard to achieve

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Quarterly promotions are inspiring change. Weed out the few managers who are basic paper pushers and not hands on. Keep adding more transperancy to development process

      Pros

      Excellent software engineering capabilities, strong culture, mostly data-driven decision making.

      I have been working at Amazon full-time for more than 3 years

      Pros

      Amazon is a place to do innovation and run down your ideas to provide exceptional customer service in the competitive market. Whether you are a developer, manager, or any other position, you would always find yourself thinking outside of the box and working backward from customer. You will get challenged and learn so much that you would never find such an experience from any other company. Simply, being Amazonian is a...

        Current Employee - Software Development Engineer In Test in Seattle, WA

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

        Learn something new every single day. Challenging place to be in when you start your career.

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

        Pros

        They trust you with a lot, allowing you to grow your skills and make an actual impact, even with entry level positions. The company definitely has a direction, and the leadership knows where they're headed Leadership principles are great.

        Cons

        The high expectations mean internal competition is stiff, and they ask a lot. Stock is more carrot than reward - most people don't stay long enough to get their initial stock vest, so don't count on it as compensation.

        Advice to Management

        Targeting employees willing to work a lot makes sense, but getting a broader range in (those desiring more work-life balance or part-time) may make for a more diverse workplace with more product ideas.
