Great company if you're a cultural fit

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

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

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

ConsNone 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

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