I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Team oriented atmosphere, fast paced environment, a lot of room to make independent decisions

Cons

Too much time spend on "thinking big" that minute details are often an after thought.

Advice to Management

Develop from within. Bringing outsiders in damages both morale and culture. While it might be nececessary, do only as a last resort.

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work with some of the smartest people I've ever met. Fast paced. Live the leadership principles every day. Value calculated risk taking and experimentation and piloting new things

    Cons

    Too fast paced often... Working in silos, poor program management, project management and change management. Heavy focus on data and metrics, which can be a great thing, but data sources all over the place. Flavor of the week mentality with priorities. Limited closed feedback loops

    Advice to Management

    Set clear priorities, re- evaluate benefits packages, communicate a clear strategy, invest in educating and developing people


  2. "Fast-paced work, which is rewarded by great pay and all-you-can-drink coffee and Gatorade."

    Pros

    The pay and the daily benefits (all-you-can-drink coffee and Gatorade), reward system for reporting unsafe conditions ($20 gift card)

    Cons

    not for the slow-paced, no ability to accommodate people with school schedules, i.e. no part-time, boring 8-hour-long class to sit through on your very first day

    Advice to Management

    Please offer part-time opportunity to those in the staffing-company phase of the job!
