Approves of CEO

I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Pay very well with good benefits
Allow for creativity. Anyone who has a good idea is told to go try it, if it works it's implemented throughout the company

Cons

Always changing environment. While this can be a good thing to avoid totally monotonous work, it's kind of demoralizing how things change as soon as you get good at it.
Tough work-life balance, especially during peak time

Advice to Management

I worked as a lower level manager, but upper management was very up front with reviews and accessible. I didn't have any issues with the upper management team

    I worked at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazon has a high hiring bar with competitive compensation and bonuses, and therefore bright people you can learn a lot from about new cutting edge and large scale technologies.

    Cons

    Benefits are at ok level, and you can expect to be doing multiple types of activities during your tenure there - beginning with requirements definition, and finishing with operations support and being on pager duty.

    Advice to Management

    I wish the technical side of the company was more structured into Operations support, development, QA.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You're always going to have opportunities to grow within the company. You have a great way to gain experience through mentor-ships. Amazon has a very casual work environment.

    Cons

    Amazon is a very frugal company, therefore no free lunches daily. Restaurants around campus are somewhat expensive. No free Amazon Prime or Kindle Fires.

    Advice to Management

    Having a monthly appreciation party would be great! Though not really advice, you guys are awesome!
