Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Amazon is a great place to learn from smart people, particularly at our remote development site. There's a lot of opportunity for motivated engineers to learn a lot about all aspects of software development and make a direct difference to the business.

Cons

Opportunities for promotion or different work are limited at our remote development site. And dealing with people in other sites is a common source of stress.

Advice to Management

"Think big" is a core competency at Amazon. Senior management may be thinking big, but it would be nice if they shared more about the vision with us as it's not always clear.
