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

    Pros

    Great work environment in my team. However, work environment can be very different depending on your team and manager. We have regular opportunities to make concerns heard by upper management in either one-on-ones, town-hall style meetings (all-hands) and via informal pizza lunches with the division CFO. Seattle SLU campus is great and continues to get better every year! Lots of opportunities to make meaningful contributions.

    Cons

    Being part of a company that has ambitious plans means a lot of time is spent catching up. Things change very fast and there is a need to adapt quickly. This can be exciting or frustrating or tiring depending on your attitude towards it. If you're comfortable with the idea of working for a start-up, you will fit right in! While medical/ dental/ 401k is decent, other perks are lacking (tuition reimbursement for one). The...

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good work on listening to the team and following through on promises. Jeff Bezos & Andy Jassy have the vision to take Amazon and AWS forward. Need to invest more in campus shuttles to/ from all major suburbs to make it easier for Amazonians new to Seattle to become home owners.

    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.
