Pros

The pay at Amazon is very fair

    Former Employee - Vendor Manager in Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Vendor Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    the ability to impact your business quickly and in an action oriented way
    smart talented people; some of the smartest I've ever worked with
    good benefits

    Cons

    constant competition breeds need for everyone to want to be 'right' in the room and be the first person with the answer
    stack ranking of employees during review time weeding out good or great employees because not everyone can have a great review statistically
    lack of expectation for management to actually do a good job managing. Working out issues is the employees problem
    24 x7 workload

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop stack ranking your employees and breeding an environment of constant competition. Eventually you will crush your innovation

    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer II in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stock keeps going up :)
    Get to learn a lot from team mates.
    Great managers (for the most part)
    You can take on as much responsibility as you want and grow.
    Chance to be part of one of the fastest growing 100Billion company

    Cons

    on call
    job can be stress full at times
    a lot of people are workaholics which pushes everyone to work harder and harder

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get support engineers for all teams. There is no good justification for hiring expensive software engineers and making them do support work. Build better internal tools for SDEs (this is improving quite a bit, but there is a ways to go)
