"Amazon provides a lot of security but as a big company has a lot of policy and logistics in place that can hinder creativity and career growth. Other than process hindering career growth I am extremely happy here."
"I interned there so can't say much about the company, but it's a good place to get some work experience as a UG student."
"There is often mismanagement of all resources. It often feels like there is no improvement or you constantly are redoing the same work."
"The company is good. The actual work sucks. It's still just a basic warehouse... and you can't expect to do anything if you don't have a degree."
"Read the internet about the HR policy before going to this place. If you like Perl, Mason and old stuff that's for you."
"Good company to start for and get experience."
"I have worked for Amazon.com for 8+ years and it has been a great place to work."
"I have worked with Amazon.com for about a year now and find it as an exciting place to work."
"After one year spent in the AWS data center environment I can only say positive things about the experience. The management at all levels was helpful and responsive, my co-workers were all knowledgeable and friendly, and the on-the-job perks of an open schedule, light workload and company sponsored dinners put the entire thing over the top. I have heard some other teams in the area do not get the same perks, so other reviews may vary."
"It's an ok place with a lot of opportunity."
"Amazon.com has a very competitive atmosphere for management which can cause for a tense work environment at times. A lot of room for upward movement but there is a lot of pressure to exceed the demand of management. Deadlines don't exist because everything needs to get done yesterday. If you can't produce you don't have much time to recover because they will put you on the chopping block quick. If you can produce, consistently, then this is the place for you."
"I worked at Amazon in fall 2013. I had an amazing experience."
"I have worked for Amazon Fulfillment since October of 2012. I believe they have a great core of values including those concerning customer orientation and leadership. However, I feel as though management can be vastly improved. I do not feel I am supported by my immediate management. Compensation is rather low for the responsibilities and duties required for my position. I do enjoy working for Amazon but I do not see myself building a strong career within the Fulfillment Center."
"I interned with Amazon last summer and I had a very positive experience. People around you are supportive and are willing to help. There is literally no management and developers are given a lot of freedom in terms of technology."
