    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

    I have been working at Amazon full-time

    Pros

    Really smart people, a lot of opportunity for growth, always encouraged to be innovative, think big, and create something new. Competitive salary and benefits with other major tech companies. 100% self motivating work environment. No dress code and 4 legged friends are welcome.

    Cons

    You have to be self motivated. NO ONE will hold your hand and tell you that you're doing a great job. If you need constant affirmations from management, this company isn't for you.

    Advice to Management

    More on-boarding training before new employees are thrown in the fire. The first couple of weeks can be very confusing on where to find the information you need that pertains to your job.
