    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Amazon as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazon has come a long way from the first days of shooting product. Frugality is the name of the game.

    Cons

    Hardcore work environment with no comforts. A rubber pad to stand on (cement floors) not enough space to set up your tools. Etc.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to a plan. I feel like everytime you come in to work it has all changed. From art directors vision to how we shoot a certain product to work flow. Tons of wasted money from this .....

    I worked at Amazon full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steep learning curve. You will get a chance to influence products that are being used by millions. Experience looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    I would not recommend MBA's to join Amazon. There are a few roles out there which offer good experience but overall I would say 75% chances are that you will get disappointed with your experience. Talk to your colleagues (software and product) before taking up an offer.

    The company is very political in director level and up. Contrary to what some say, I have experience it first hand. Smart people in the company are typically not good manager and still get promoted.

    Advice to Management

    Company is growing, pay attention to the cultural shift. It will to too late to change otherwise. Folks come here to work on the cool products but not for the company.
