I have been working at Amazon.com as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

The team I supported (Instant Video and Digital Music) was very collaborative and very involved with the business. Willing to share ideas and end result of getting the best hires for Amazon

Cons

Very competitive across the recruiting org, some in the recruiting functions willing to work as a team, others not so much.

    Small Business Feel - Get a lot done but don't spend any money

    Pros

    Very collaborative environment, constructive meetings, serious customer focus, and amazing long term perspective. Nothing is done to make this quarter look better, it's allways for the long haul.

    Cons

    Engineers own software that is delivered as a service and they own every aspect from design to development to test to operate to firefight to maintain. This is largely a good thing, but being on a pager duty rotation can put a damper on home life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Foot the bill for ops folks that can resolve more tickets.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pleasant environment.
    Often freebies, snacks, food... etc.
    They seem to care about customers

    Cons

    The pay isn't the greatest, but good for the area.
    They can fire you out of the blue with no warning and no discipline steps.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let HR bully you management, stand up for your employees. How can you admit you don't believe there was any intentional wrong-doing, then fire a person anyway with no written, no final, no nothing. This was the only job I've ever had that I actually liked. Thanks for ruining it for me.
