Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

Pros

A perfect place for singles and workaholics.

Cons

Passive attitude due to too many works.
Engineers are responsible for most of operational works and oncall.

Advice to Management

I don't think even startups treat their people like this. People leave, majority of new hires are graduates. See the long term.

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

    Pros

    Top-notch engineering talent and excellent compensation

    Cons

    Very aggressive, not lifestyle-friendly, very focused on making money, sometimes feels like a Wall Street firm. Not for the long-term unless you can be aggressive day-in and day-out for years and years

    Advice to Management

    Relax a bit, and respect people more

    Pros

    Awesome company to work at. Very interesting work. Cutting edge on several levels, surrounded by several brilliant people! Also bring your dog to work!

    Cons

    Its a lot of work, be prepared to work. There are also not too many perks, but I am fine with that. I would just say its more about your work than its about anything else.
