What Employees Say
I have been working at Amazon full-time for less than a year
Excellent balance between life and work culture. Offers a fair salary/benefit/stocks package. For the very first time I'm working for a company which has employee recognition on its DNA, and have... opportunities for career progression without necessarily going to a way of management level.
Perhaps the company could provide support for gym or at least encourage the practice of any other sports / healthy habits before / after office hours. Indeed, this is not a 'cons', just a suggestion... which potentially could impact employee's way of life (and as a side effect keep improving company's productivity). Other than that, I have not had any bad experience so far and I hope things continue running smoothly.

Free food Free health care (even covered by global insurance) Free massages Free bus (only in the bay and Singapore AFAIK) Awesome blameless work culture
The company is growing at an unprecedented rate, and is QUICKLY lossing it's unique culture. More and more typical dressed up business people are getting hired who are not Googley at all.
