I have been working at Amazon full-time

Pros

Lots of possibilities to move around, lots of friendly and smart people to work with. Lots of great products and innovation going on. Innovation is encouraged.

Cons

The hiring process has brought in too many engineers that just know java. Not much uniqueness, just people who can code interview questions. Ltos of operations, handled by engineers oncall, which eats into coding time. Web developers are often seen as second class to "software engineers" even though it is a different type of job, different skill set. Its near impossible to move levels

Advice to Management

Create 20 levels, so its more rewarding and easier to achieve. The more people see people achieving levels, the more they are going to see the possibilities of doing this themselves.

    Upper management not being open to the workers ideas

    Upper management needs to listen to the assicates when changes need to be made. After all we are the ones working the floor so we would know more what will and will not work
