Great place to work!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Amazon.com

ProsSenior 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.

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

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
