Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

- Get to work with smart people
- Company is loved by customers and its products are used by millions

Cons

- Expectations to work long hours and weekends
- Constantly shifting deadlines make it difficult to stay on top of your responsibilities
- High turnover makes it difficult to form good relationships with colleagues

Advice to Management

More structured planning and fewer randomizing demands from senior management would make the engineering organization more effective.

    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to grow your career, lots of intelligent people to work with, and managers are usually very reasonable and considering. Not much politics at all. And of course CEO is the top notch one with great vision.

    Cons

    Oncall sometimes could be a little bit invasive to your personal life but still manageable after you know what you are doing. Benefits is good but not great.
