Infinite opportunity for the taking, but not your typical tech company benefits.

Current Employee - Senior Program Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

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

Pros

Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses
Lots of autonomy
Opportunity for ownership
Really smart people in business and tech
Fast paced

Cons

Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven
Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote.
We need to streamline promoting from within.
