Featured Review

Current Employee - Cloud Support Engineer

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

Pros

I do really enjoy working here. The team is full of very smart people, and everyone at all levels seems well aligned to provide a great customer experience. Our managers also show a sincere interest... in knowing how we are feeling, and take our concerns seriously (which is rare on large corporations, I've only experienced this before on small companies). Also a big kudos to the response taken in regards to the current COVID situation. The situation was quickly acknowledged and the correct actions were taken to keep the team safe. Honestly, I feel really proud to work here.

Cons

Nothing major that I can think of. There were some concerns in the past which have already been addressed (or currently are).
