Infinite opportunity for the taking, but not your typical tech company benefits.

Pros

Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses Lots of autonomy Opportunity for ownership Really smart people in business and tech Fast paced

Cons

Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

Advice to Management

It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote. We need to streamline promoting from within.

    Pros

    Rapid growth Strong leadership Lots of opportunities to grow and work on exciting projects Amazon culture (if you're a good fit)

    Cons

    None of the usual tech perks (e.g. free lunch, etc.) - in fact, frugality is a core tenet Promotions are a reward for having done the level up job, not a prerequisite to doing the job
