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

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

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

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

ConsLots 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 Senior ManagementIt 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.

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

Not a great place to work as Full-time perm

Software Engineer (Former Employee)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time


Pros: lots of money and good benefits Cons: no time to live your life. The hours will kill any family life you want. They hire you and you have a brief honeymoon period… Advice to Senior Management: get rid of the CEO More
