Leaving Amazon Retail non-tech

Amazon Ex-Amazomb
Jun 21, 2018 12 Comments

Vendor Manager 1.5 yrs TC 1.5 yoe. Manager wouldn’t support transfer to account management in AWS so now leaving the company. Basic skills learned were negotiations, cross-functional team projects (prime day coordination etc) and supply chain management. We own the p&l and speak to initiatives for top and bottom line growth.

Suggestions on places to look next? Facebook said no and google is slow. Apple offer in hand.

In Seattle is Microsoft...but curious about the biased blind opinions :)

    Is good when priorities are clear. My particular management would witch between growth and profitability weekly when we could have actually worked on both. So much like the rest of amazon bad management got in the way of good workers and initiatives. I’m at Apple now much more professional and aligned on strategy/goals. Managers are experienced, etc.

    Yeah lol. I'm in cloud now, I'm worried going into Amazon retail can hurt my future career prospects... But I REALLY hate my location

      130 is high end l5 or regular vm L6 150 for senior is easily attainable. I was always trying to get into cloud is that’s where the growth is and I’d assume money. Amazon is a crapshoot depending on team even within each org

      Yeah cloud seems to be the wave, but I've had no luck getting interviews with AWS... Recruiter told me they couldn't even do 110 so im assuming she's lying... I've got a decision to make.

    Interesting vm roles to me would be in global account or amazon go for example. Brick and mortar is the new focus. Imagine that haha

    They are all L6 senior roles now or moving that direction. Fresh MBAs mostly and the growth is within category management

    Thanks for the response. I'm at Microsoft now, just really want to change location. Is their growth for VMs? If you don't mind me asking what kind positions did that role open up for you/whatre you doing now.
