Great place to work if you can embrace the culture and work with others.

Manager (Former Employee) Seattle, WA (US)

ProsSome of the smartest and passionate people you will meet. When Amazon talks about putting the customer first, it is not just talk. The entire focus of every team is figuring out how to serve their immediate customers better which in turn can be very exciting. The influence that a single person can have is great as high performers are able to take control of their career and do what they wish with it.

ConsSome of the Microsoft-esque HR policies are infuriating. Pay is highly dependent on job family, which is silly when they encourage individuals to have an impact, regardless of job title/family.

The pay is not always going to be market level, especially if the stock is not doing well.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the job family guidelines for top performers.

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

    Pros: - Smart people all around keeping you on toes. - Culture of thinking out of box. - Tough milestones to achieve… Cons: - pathetic work-life balance. - in the name of frugality , they do some cheap and mean things like choose a facility in the remotest corner… Advice to Senior Management: An employee's work ownership does not make the employee a work-horse which can keep running without any pause. Learn to recognize… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
