Good

Senior Financial Analyst (Former Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

ProsVery Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

ConsOne gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
