    Current Employee - Software Development Engineer in Seattle, WA (US)

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

    Pros

    Great attitude towards customers at all levels and all job functions resulting directly to very happy customers.
    Very smart colleagues
    Fun atmosphere
    Excellent tools
    People do try to do the right thing

    Cons

    Having very smart colleagues means it is harder to stand out
    While pay and stock grants are pretty good, other benefits are basic. Company maintains a culture of disciplined spending/frugality. I don't really think this is too much of a problem although other people seeking the "Google" perks will probably be disappointed.

    Current Employee - Account Manager  in  Lauzun (France)
    Current Employee - Account Manager in Lauzun (France)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most processes in place do work as you would expect and there is little bureaucracy. There is also room for new ideas and proposals as well as many self-service tools and resources.

    Cons

    Coaching is not as good as you would expect. Once you enter you are basically on your own. It is up to you to identify a model and the opportunities. Motivation is also up to you. Amazon will invest in your ideas if you can prove they are worthy and back them with real data which means that your initiatives are something you will have to work on during your weekends or spare time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some more coaching and career guidance would be appreciated.
