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

    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

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    great product to work for
    great and passionate people to work with

    Cons

    All directions and decisions are being made in Seattle, or if you are lucky, in Luxembourg - so you might have a say in it (i frankly never had)
    Actual results do not matter, just show off, change some numbers and you will be a star
    If you are bad, you will be treated badly. If you are good, you'll get more work, and probably will be treated less badly
    The training are made by in house employees who want to train. You want to learn SQL? good - let me train you. If you want external training - you'll have a bad time
    Frugality is one of the cornerstones of Amazon. But if you get a cheap laptop, no training, less budget to hire people ... it's just frustrating and makes you inefficient

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frugality is blocking a lot of work and creates frustration. Ease up
    Listen to your employees - and if you listen, do care
    Do not reward arrogance

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Approves of CEO
