Infinite opportunity for the taking, but not your typical tech company benefits.

Senior Program Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than 5 years

ProsTons of opportunity to move around to different businesses
Lots of autonomy
Opportunity for ownership
Really smart people in business and tech
Fast paced

ConsLots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven
Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

Advice to Senior ManagementIt is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote.
We need to streamline promoting from within.

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