Sourcer (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Amazon.com full-time for less than a year

Pros-No micromanagement. Everyone is encouraged to do their job the way they think will be the most productive. You're free to be creative in order to be successful!
-Great culture. Dogs, jeans, high-fives, gongs, and some of the smartest people I've ever met!
-This is by far the most innovative, progressive, and collaborative business I've had the pleasure of working for. I'm blown away at this huge corporation's ability to function like a start-up.
-Upper management is very involved in all day-to-day processes. It's a flatter organization than most.

Cons-It's hard work. Every day.
-The organization is ever-changing which makes it difficult to "get used to" your job.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
