"Not sure about this role"

Pros

Smart peers, fun environment, doggies! Developers and product managers are key to the success of each team.

Cons

Middle management needs work. Not great at developing direct reports or helping them get to the next level of their career. This is my only experience on one team at Amazon. I'm hoping this is an isolated situation.

Advice to Management

Need to learn to lead by example and help develop the talent they have.

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

    Pros

    I appreciate some of the benefits but employee costs needs to be lower to compete with other companies.

    Cons

    Time off needs to be updated - vacation time and only having a total of 6 holidays per year is not competitive. Ability to be promoted is talked about in the interview process but in the end if you come in as a mgr or sr. manager the opportunities are few and far between at the next level. You are expected to relocate laterally across the country for a same levle job/lateral move - no additional money and hoped you will be promoted but then does not happen. If you can get promoted you are expected to do the job for a long time (12 - 18+ months) before promo and increased occurs. Increases to base pay will be very small. Many employees are not friendly and throw others under the bus in order to get ahead.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on opp's for middle mgmt - create more opp's, change promo process, focus on retention - if not it will catch up very soon.
