Approves of CEO

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

Pros

The company takes bottom-up ideas very seriously. Developer has a lot of freedom to design products and the release cycle is super fast. People are very nice and professional. The technology used for development is top of the line.

Cons

Sometimes oncall is stressing for new SDEs.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company to hone your analytic abilities and become a wiz at gathering and analyzing data

    Cons

    Despite casual dress codes and pets in the office, the atmosphere feels unfriendly, disconnected, and aggressive at times. Negative feedback is given often, positive feedback is rare. I sat within 15 feet of everyone in my group (8 people), and it is often silent through much of the day, without "hellos" or "good mornings".

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement is a lot more motivating then negative feedback. Set reasonable expectations from the beginning and don't pile on more non-critical tasks after you've agreed on what is expected.

    Pros

    Worker-centric culture, well known for caring for their people

    Cons

    Frequent changes in operations, with almost no plan good enough to stick to.

    Advice to Management

    Get an idea that works, then maintain it, tweak it, but don't change it unless it breaks.
