Featured Review

Current Employee - Program Manager

I have been working at Microsoft full-time for more than a year

Pros

* Cool product * Great team * Great manager

Cons

a little bit of bureaucracy and politics always low on budget

Current Employee - Solutions Architect

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

Pros

Great on-boarding process for new team members. Great learning opportunities (training, job shadow, certification paths). Everybody is very helpful and friendly. A strong and very capable team.... Low administrative overhead with a lot of things being done lean. The Amazon Leadership Principles come up in pretty much everything we do and is something that serves as inspiration.

Cons

The drawback of being on a fast-growing team is that almost everybody in the team is new to Amazon. We compensate for this by having mentors elsewhere in the organization and by being resourceful in... settling in.
