It is a great place to work!

Software Development Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

ProsI am impressed by what I have seen in Amazon so far. it is very efficient and well managed. The sense of ownership and customer focus is so strong that you can feel it from employees in all levels. You have opportunity to work with bunch of smart people. People here are kind and willing to offer help as long as you ask.

ConsThe ramp up curve is big. It usually takes about few months to understand Amazon technology and culture. No formal training program.

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is a challenge to grow so fast but still keep the original culture. Middle layer management team is the key.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Wonderful company culture, pretty good pay and benefits, chance of poor work/life balance

Pros: Everyone at Amazon is smart and fun to work with and do not subscribe to the FUD (Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt) that plagues software so big… Cons: Different teams at Amazon have wildly different experiences, which range from poor to awesome. Some teams have operational issues that basically turn their SDE's… Advice to Senior Management: Hire support engineers. SDE's maintaining their own software to promote quality sounds like a good idea, except employee turnover… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
