Not for people who want to slide by in life.

Sourcer (Current Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

Pros-No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful!
-Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met!
-This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up.
-Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

Cons-It's hard work. Every day.
-The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good money but awful work/life balance, hours, pressure

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


    Pros: money, room for creativity/openness to new ideas and trying new… Cons: many unreasonable expectations, 60 hour+ workweek Advice to Senior Management: Care more about your people's work/life balance and do something to make it better instead of ignoring the problem… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
