    Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in Seattle, WA (US)

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Learned a LOT by doing lots of different things, good guidance from managers and peers, had tons of responsibilities, great experience post-MBA. Super smart co-workers. A strong customer oriented, disruptive business philosophy that drives amazing innovation and build news business. Great CEO.

    Cons

    Worked a lot with little work-life balance. Management and supervisors care little about your career, or personal time, or overall career growth.

    Former Employee - Corporate Counsel  in  Seattle, WA (US)
    Former Employee - Corporate Counsel in Seattle, WA (US)

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very competitive salary for Seattle market

    Cons

    - Workload and work/life balance (was even worse than being at a big law firm)
    - Inadequate training
    - Uninteresting work (get ready to spend your days writing disclaimers)
    - Few perks
    - Unsupportive environment with virtually no secretarial or paralegal support
    - Cramped, noisy and dark offices
    - Endless goal setting and review processes that keep you from doing your work
    - Dishonest personnel misrepresented the nature of the job and the benefit/compensation packages I would be given during the interview process
    - Only 2 weeks paid vacation per year during first 2 years of employment
    - Dogs all over the office - if you don't like hearing/seeing/smelling other people's dogs all day, you'll be miserable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If they have any interest in retaining talent, they should try to improve training and support, improve work/life balance, streamline the endless cycle of goal-setting and reviews and generally encourage an environment of teamwork and mutual support. Backbiting and dishonesty pervades throughout the legal department, beginning during interview process and lasting past when I gave notice. It surely is costly to have a revolving door of a legal department, but virtually everybody I know there left, or intends to leave, at the first opportunity.
