Awesome place! Very smart people

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Amazon.com

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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an 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

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

    Pros

    Stable company that has high safety standards when many other warehouses do not

    Cons

    Amazon has a habit of working their employees very hard. Most of them burn out or they find a way to terminate the rest of their employees after two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honesty Integrity and value your employees as people

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
