Pros

1. Very positive working environment for engineers; coworkers help each other out. 2. Be able to work on cutting edge technologies in Amazon. 3. Amazon got a great leader, Jeff Bazos, who is very smart and has made many right decisions. 4. Amazon dominates the e-retail business. 5. Amazon Web Services (AWS) are doing really well in the cloud computing market.

Cons

1. Operational tasks take a lot of time, as a result fewer time can be spent on actual development. 2. Oncall overheads in some teams are crazy and oncall can be paged many times. 3. Employee benefit is not that good.

Advice to Management

Consider increasing the salary, which is not that competitive anymore.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses Lots of autonomy Opportunity for ownership Really smart people in business and tech Fast paced

    Cons

    Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote. We need to streamline promoting from within.
