Pros

1. Great leadership.
2. Awesome principles and strategy
3. Technical stack is the best in the market and top notch engineers
4. Love for technology and costumer obsession.

Cons

1. Frugal strategy. Very low perks to employees compared to all the other top technical companies
2. The technical stack is already been designed and very stable. This reduces the learning opportunities available in other small technical firms.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to create more learning opportunity and a little low stress on deliverables

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

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great attitude towards customers at all levels and all job functions resulting directly to very happy customers.
    Very smart colleagues
    Fun atmosphere
    Excellent tools
    People do try to do the right thing

    Cons

    Having very smart colleagues means it is harder to stand out
    While pay and stock grants are pretty good, other benefits are basic. Company maintains a culture of disciplined spending/frugality. I don't really think this is too much of a problem although other people seeking the "Google" perks will probably be disappointed.

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

    Pros

    Innovative and creative, Amazon pushes the boundaries of e-tailing.

    Cons

    They will work you like a dog. Get ready for long hours, weekends and a work life balance that will be throw off your social schedule. Amazon will due the bare minimum to fall in line with city, state and national laws and regulations but don't expect anything more than that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You will continue to see high turnover as long as the current structure exists. Lack of respect, trust and career development are just a few shortcomings of the Amazon culture.
