    Former Employee - Product Manager in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Employees are empowered to make important decisions, it did not feel political, decisions acted on quickly and performance is measured objectively. Good career prospects

    Cons

    At least the UK offices are UGLY and they make no effort at all to improve them.
    Pay is just barely in the market range.
    Overall very frugal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a point on diminishing returns when saving money is more expensive than spending it. Example if a decision gets delayed because it is hard to get travel approval.
