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

    Pros

    Working at Amazon is a great experience. Among the various jobs that can be found in Cork surely Amazon is among those paid best and with the best benefits. All superiors are always very kind, professional and helpful. The working environment is serious but remains very human and if you have problems you can always talk to your Manager for anything.

    Cons

    For now the biggest problem I have had was training to start and work. A little too short and not deep enough to be ready for work.

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

    Pros

    You will have a chance to work with talented guys from all around the world. Competitive salary, friendly work environment, opportunity to switch between departments and positions, opportunity to work with latest cloud technologies

    Cons

    Lot of things to learn - sometimes it's hard to catch it; latest managers imported from traditional companies do not understand AWS culture; Sometimes, quantity becomes more important than quality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring managers from dinosaur companies such as IBM. They do not understand how engineers work, and just focus on simple metrics. Data is good, but if you do not understand the facts behind the data, it can be very misleading.
