I have been working at Amazon full-time

Pros

Pays is decent, not the best but decent

Cons

Managers are a bunch egotistic power hungry bullies who pre on lower staff. They are a bunch of malfunctioning idots who needs to realize that the regular worker is just as much of the companie's success as they are.

Advice to Management

Hire regular people, not morons to lead the staff!

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    the ability to impact your business quickly and in an action oriented way
    smart talented people; some of the smartest I've ever worked with
    good benefits

    Cons

    constant competition breeds need for everyone to want to be 'right' in the room and be the first person with the answer
    stack ranking of employees during review time weeding out good or great employees because not everyone can have a great review statistically
    lack of expectation for management to actually do a good job managing. Working out issues is the employees problem
    24 x7 workload

    Advice to Management

    stop stack ranking your employees and breeding an environment of constant competition. Eventually you will crush your innovation

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amazon is a great entry place for engineers. A mix of some ability and some drive will get an entrant into the full engineering exposure at a fast pace. Most of the direct software managers have engineering backgrounds mostly as experienced engineers at the company they don't just know about the technology but will have insight into relative teams too.

    Cons

    Management ability is completely random. Many do not have the training or ability to manage. The rise by force of will culture leads to a culture of it's everyone's responsibility who has a certain level of competence to do everything. Organization makes no sense in that way.
