"Good company and learning."
"The middle layer of management, from SDM to Director, has a lot of power to do whatever they wish. How you are treated at Amazon depends almost entirely on your manager. With a good manager, you'll do well. With a rotten manager, and there are a lot of them, you'll do poorly. This includes such things as work-life balance, compensation, and advancement.Basic project management guidelines, best practices, and tenets are routinely violated. The lessons of The Mythical Man-Month are lost."
"Amazon is a software, web-development company. The practices and culture fit well for software, web-development. Other technologies are a misfit - Computer Vision, Image Processing or Machine Learning. Work life balance sucks!"
"Amazon is a highly competitive atmosphere where no one seems to know what they're competing for. There is no collective goal that everyone is working toward. Teams seems to work in silo with no regard for the impact on tangential teams. Compensation is terrible, and seems that all the smart people end up leaving, and only the ones willing to stay well past the point of what's rational are promoted."
"Most of the time I worked remote with AMZN, but since I worked for the first 3-6 months in AMZN data center (unlike corp env.) it was SO different, and it was new to me. But slowly I got adjusted."
"Extremely good workplace if you get into good team!"
"Great company, lots of room for growth."
"In the year I have been with amazon, I have experienced too much territorialism. Responsible parties are slow to onboard outside engineers, even within the same business group. This makes self determination and ownership challenging at best, impossible at worst. I was asked to push untested and even incomplete work for the sake of making a stakeholder look good. Too much self interest in the.management team."
"I interned with Amazon over the summer. It was a great experience."
