    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    No day has been the same, constantly working on new projects. Extremely well paid in salary and shares. A real focus on career progression and retaining talent within the business and team.

    Cons

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget that appreciation means a lot to people. There’s a huge focus on employees needing an MBA to progress when this isn’t needed. When team members aren’t pulling their weight and having a negative impact it’s impossible for them to be removed.

    Interview

    Interview process was quite quick. They ask you to solve a Hackerrank challenge and then invite you for an HR interview. I then got a Tech Call for an hour with a standard interview question and a nice guy. Wasn't invited onsite.
