Great company

Senior Vendor Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

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

ProsPros:
+ Like others have said, you are really encouraged to act as a business owner.
+ Work is fast paced and can be a grind, but there is never a dull moment.
+ Strong commitment to the Leadership Principles.
+ Commitment to the long term goals of the company vs. parity with retail competitors.
+ Employees are rewarded for their work and compensated appropriately.
+ Beautiful campus

ConsCons:
- Can be a grind - long hours are the rule, not the exception. Work life balance is heavily weighted to work.
- Management and management expectations varies greatly from business unit to business unit.
- Typical red-flags within a company (like high turnover) are not investigated.
- Culture is very male-centric. Women need to have thick skin and be willing to speak up and be heard.

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