    I worked at Amazon for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees are generally open minded and higher digital literacy. So if you are digital designer, it’s more comfortable workplace for you. Report line and mentorship are well considered in this company. If you are a type of a person seeking to grow or learn with rigit manner, I think this would be a good company to be.

    Cons

    Sound like mispositioning is often occur, especially when the team is still new. Actually, I’m my case was mispositioning we both admit. Otherwise, I would liked working for them.

    Advice to Management

    Have job interviewer to review actual work role with a manager.

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

      Pros

      Amazon is also a great company that expands its business incredibly (Alexa, delivery, Amazon fresh, Amazon payment etc.) and there are many working opportunities with them now and for the following years.

      Cons

      The company recently focuses more on developing mechanism something that is based on automation, online and self-services that provides less opportunity to engage with clients / customers directly. In addition, there are much time required to collect and analyze data and write word documents for business reviews especially if you are a manager.
