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

Pros

Great culture, amazing coworkers, and rewarding work experiences. It was the best job I had so far in my career. The best part is the responsibility they give you to impact the business as it is very hands on and a great learning experience.

Cons

Can be stressful at times. This is due to the ambiguous processes and fast paced atmosphere. Sometimes, it can seem like there are too many people that are too busy for you too and wont help.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great CEO, great retail side of the business

    Cons

    Forced stack ranking, hostile environment, no work/life balance, cut throat backstabbing culture, no engineering bonuses, low salaries, terrible hardware engineering leadership, impossible to get promoted

    Advice to Management

    Need to do more to develop employees and get them promoted versus always hiring senior people externally. Need to develop and engineering bonus for project completion to be competitive with silicon valley. Need to approve business travel for engineers who are constantly traveling to China and giving up time with their families. Need to hire more employees to improve work/life balance.
