Pros: cultural days, treats of the world, family BBQ's
Cons: Mandatory overtime
Typical day would be fast paced, new requests coming at you from all department equally urgent.
What I learned at Amazon is to prioritize in order of importance and schedule everything you need to do for the following day in your calendar, else you would never get any thing accomplished - starting everything and finishing nothing.
Co-workers at Amazon are what made the job fun, cooperative, hard working and always willing to help one another.
Hardest part of my job is leaving, don't want to, but need to pursue a new career.
