    Pros

    Top notch engineers and better management than most large companies. They have an emphases on accomplishing features for the customers rather than playing in a sandbox just for entertainment of cool ideas.

    Cons

    As the company grew there appeared way too much paperwork and process. The security team is a bureaucracy that fights against any development. The S-Team goals are a huge time waster for managers and their lead engineers.

    Advice to Management

    Offload all the bs from the engineers. Simplify the feedback process and steam bs.

    Pros

    - independence to work by yourself and work on projects without a lot of hoops to jump through.

    Cons

    - not as big of a safety net because of that freedom. Expected to learn things by yourself and by taking your own initiative to ask for help.

    Advice to Management

    - Create more enticing compensation packages to encourage more people from different areas for the analyst positions.

    Pros

    decent entry-level pay
    comprehensive list of benefits
    a seemingly endless number of career paths to all fields *IF* sought after.

    Cons

    this is a VERY active environment and a great place to burn a lot of calories. Amazon in my personal opinion is an excellent company to work for especially if your intent is to move up or into other fields. I truly enjoy working here and the job is exactly what i expected so the cons are to each his or her own...

    Advice to Management

    One of the only complaints I would have about fulfillment work is the lack of task variety during the work day. Even though trained to do various tasks in the department, sometimes a worker can be stuck doing the same repetitive job for 10 hours a day without change. This can lead to task fatigue and burn-out especially the closer one gets to the end of the day.
