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

Pros

Pros:
+ Like others have said, you are really encouraged to act as a business owner.
+ Work is fast paced and can be a grind, but there is never a dull moment.
+ Strong commitment to the Leadership Principles.
+ Commitment to the long term goals of the company vs. parity with retail competitors.
+ Employees are rewarded for their work and compensated appropriately.
+ Beautiful campus

Cons

Cons:
- Can be a grind - long hours are the rule, not the exception. Work life balance is heavily weighted to work.
- Management and management expectations varies greatly from business unit to business unit.
- Typical red-flags within a company (like high turnover) are not investigated.
- Culture is very male-centric. Women need to have thick skin and be willing to speak up and be heard.

    Not sure about this role

    Pros

    Smart peers, fun environment, doggies! Developers and product managers are key to the success of each team.

    Cons

    Middle management needs work. Not great at developing direct reports or helping them get to the next level of their career. This is my only experience on one team at Amazon. I'm hoping this is an isolated situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to learn to lead by example and help develop the talent they have.

    Pros

    Good salary for a fresher, better than current market standards. Dress Code: Wear something

    -The job we do at amazon is amazing. Free transport(being the only reason for retention)
    -data driven culture (can be manipulated by the management)
    -high growth possibility (If you have the right people to back you)
    -Recent management has a pathetic approach towards employees, otherwise all good

    Cons

    Every passing day a new con would arise. The list might be too lengthy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please change your approach. Treat us like fellow employees, not slaves.
