Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Executive focus and engagement in programs is very motivating (and scary for some). No place to hide for under-performers, and super smart and motivated people. Clear accountabilities.

Cons

Work-life can take a hit. Very limited training, and public image of company being a sweat shop is de-motivating. Feels like other companies also do amazing things, but somehow people work less there (not sure how).

    Ability to have an impact.
    Big roles.

    Pros

    Numerous opportunities, growing company. Great place to work if you want experience in various fields. Innovative company, still operates like a startup

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge in some roles and teams, especially during the holiday season. The start up culture demands employees to be hands on.
