I have been working at Amazon.com

Pros

Senior Management are always willing to listen to ideas. If it has any meat, you can approach senior leadership with a detailed analysis and it actually leads to actionable decisions.

Cons

Although not prevalent, politics can play spoilsport and lead to redundancy. Lots of man hours wasted by competing departments producing the same stuff.

    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.

    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.
