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

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

Pros

Very 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

Cons

One 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.

    Pros

    If you can stay long enough, restricted stock is a good benefit.
    Costs of health benefits are very reasonable
    Less company politics than most companies

    Cons

    Long hours continue into non-peak times, no work life balance.
    The workforce has over 50% new employees and turnover is very high
    You work all holidays except Christmas and maybe New Years, if lucky
    Micro manage the FCs, especially during peak
    Share door desks with others, no personal space
    Don't do enough with community service

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some of the time and effort on employee satisfaction, not just customer satisfaction.
    Spend more time doing exit interviews and implement some changes
