I worked at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Killer, Cool company to work for.

Cons

Killer, cool company to work for - from the outside. Inside, it's an incoherent mess of angst, careful selection of what you say, and top down elite governance.

Advice to Management

If you are a master in politics, this is your place to shine.

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

    Pros

    Great on your resume, flexible hours and all resources needed available.

    Cons

    Negotiate sign on benefits well, I was there less than a year and still paying Amazon back a pro-rated sign on bonus. Long hours, too many internal customers to answer to, way too many systems to take care of for the team´s size.

    Advice to Management

    Doing more with less is not always right.


  2. "Great company"
