Former Employee - Outbound Pack in Cayce, SC (US)

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

Pros

Can not think of one reason to like this company

Cons

Jeff Bezos should pack in one of his "Fulfillment Centers" for about a month undercover to see just how bad the company is. Company does not care about employee retention. Turnover is at 55 %. Does that sound good to you?

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Start treating your people as people NOT machines, If you want machines BUILD THEM.

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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    * Engineers are valued. A lot of focus on giving Engineers the work that is challenging.
    * Good technological challenges. A lot of interesting problems in the AWS space which are challenging and need creativity.
    * High impact work. A lot of customers use AWS, and hence the impact is visible in terms of usage, growth, customer feedback.

    Cons

    * Design is owned by Principal Engineers. Sometimes it is hard to get the opportunity to design a system as it is owned by Principal Engineers.
    * Oncall duty can be bad on some teams. But it is ok for some teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    * Focus on operational pain reduction as much as new features..
