    I have been working at Amazon full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    At Amazon we are given the opportunity to own the part of the business we are responsible for and drive it forward in the manner in which we think will drive the best results. You work with amazing people and focus on the biggest challenges in the industry with global scope.

    Cons

    Leadership is hit and miss with some amazing leaders scattered across the company, and an number of poor leaders in key positions. The great part is, however, that Amazon is huge and movement is encouraged, so you can shop around for the great leaders.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in leadership training to drive consistency across the organization and ensure those that are promoted from within are not dependent on potentially bad leaders to become successful leaders.
