Most Helpful Positive Review

Current employee - Manager / Senior Manager

I love the culture, but it's not for everyone. It's incredibly driven, and it is a magnet for people who are passionate about their work and tend towards workaholism. It's not a requirement that you work grueling hours, but the culture doesn't discourage it. This is really about managers, where leadership definitely has an "always on" mentality. If you love to get things done, and hate having to wait for people (particularly leadership) to get around to you, this is the place you want to be. Idea for a new product at 2am? You can probably text people and discuss it. Developers and other individual contributors tend to have less of this, and when they are not on-call will tend to work closer to an 8-ish hour day with lots of flexibility.

Most Helpful Critical Review

Current employee - Manager / Senior Manager

There's some efforts to centralize formerly decentralized (and often scattered) efforts throughout the company. This can lead to much better outcomes, but one of the ways Amazon remains so successful is because of the decentralization and freedom to innovate. I'd like to see a little more moderation and thoughtfulness in how the process happens, though some centralization is definitely a good thing (reducing duplication of effort).
