Did not feel empowered by my managers Not much focus on training and development Career progression not made clear Salaries at junior level is not good Need to develop their staff more and incentivise them with bonuses, salary raises, training and development, career progression opportunities
Great to be located in the heart of London!
I really liked the office environment and working culture at Amazon. My colleagues I met were very clever and great to work with. The company is sociable, we had some fantastic office parties.
In terms of career progression there was very little made available to staff. Personal development was slim to none. The salaries for lower level staff could be improved a lot. My advice to senior staff would be to work on career progression paths for lower level staff more.
Little to no career progression.
If you work for an influential technology department at Amazon, it is a fantastic place to learn what it means to launch a business from the ground up, very casual work environment
Less levels than at MS, hence promotions are farther apart. Most individual contributor job families only have 4 levels (junior, mid, senior, principal) with very few people in the upper two levels. Big raise on promotion happen less frequently. Average raises for the average people. They prefer to hire someone else rather than give you a promotion..so think about your career
No free Amazon Prime or Kindle Fires.
Good employee empowerment culture. Great brand name to have on your CV. Youll meet a lot of hard working and intelligent people. There are a lot of growth opportunities on offer, and you can rise up fast if youre a good worker.
There is almost no work life balance, and the place is almost always under staffed. The company can get a little bureaucratic at times. There is very little training. The is not the kind of place where you want to work for more than a year or two.
