Pros

Interesting and challenging problems to solve, good mobility, plenty of opportunity to improve and challenge yourself. Amazon is "a tech company that just happens to do e-commerce", and so developers are first class citizens and the business revolves around delivering technology.

Cons

The fast environment can lead to high pressure that is not for everyone, and higher turnover means less people which means more pressure (but also more opportunity).

Advice to Management

Better sprint and project planning tools would help us be more productive.

    Pros

    Very innovative, very start up and very smart people. You must be on top of your game to survive. There is an inherent culture to minimize internal politics.

    Cons

    Very relentless, high pressure, fast burnout.


  2. so far so good

    Pros

    amazon is a growing company with many interesting problems. the complexity and scaling of the business bring a lot of challenges.

    Cons

    pay-wise is ok but not great. one leadership principle of the company is frugal, so do not expect great packages and benefits
