Pros

A very strongly shared culture and ethos, great growth potential for the company and personally.
A matrix organisation where you you can move between roles and teams based on merit and success rather than your CV.

Cons

Not many people are going to say "thank you" or "well done", you've got to take all the praise you can when you can!

    Great place to work if you can embrace the culture and work with others.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the smartest and passionate people you will meet. When Amazon talks about putting the customer first, it is not just talk. The entire focus of every team is figuring out how to serve their immediate customers better which in turn can be very exciting. The influence that a single person can have is great as high performers are able to take control of their career and do what they wish with it.

    Cons

    Some of the Microsoft-esque HR policies are infuriating. Pay is highly dependent on job family, which is silly when they encourage individuals to have an impact, regardless of job title/family.

    The pay is not always going to be market level, especially if the stock is not doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the job family guidelines for top performers.

    Pros

    very smart people who care about the company vision and the end customer. Leaders in ecommerce so obviously a lot to learn from one of the best in this space.

    Cons

    can't really think of anything. I guess as it gets bigger there are the inherent dangers with size that may impact culture but didn't see much in my time at least.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    continue doing what you do - focusing on the end customer
