    Pros

    Pay is lower than standard, but with excellent yearly evaluations the Amazon stock grants can be as much or more than the salary, virtually doubling your income. But you have to wait a long time for them to vest. The health benefits are excellent and inexpensive. Time-off is generous but the workload is so high, it's difficult to take it. Casual attire (jeans, shorts, t-shirts). Management is concern with professional growth of every employee but most of the mid-management positions are in Seattle. Great resume builder. Upper management is friendly and accessible.

    Cons

    The hours are long. Pay is not competitive (but over time will pay off). High stress environment. They hire outside the company or transfer people from Amazon for most middle and upper management positions. Located near the intersection of two tollways, chances are you'll have to take one to commute, which gets expensive. To move up in the company, you're probably going to have to move to Seattle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to remember what made Woot an appealing purchase for Amazon. Also, because you're rarely in town, you do not seem to understand the daily struggles of the business.

The snarky e-commerce company sells discounted computers, electronics, and all sorts of other items at woot.com, t-shirts at shirt.woot, and wine.woot. It generally offers one product per day until it's sold out, which may seem like an odd business model but has brought the company considerable success and attention. Founded in 2004 by CEO Matt Rutledge, Woot (from Internet slang word "w00t" used to express joy or victory) launched its main site in 2004. A pioneer of the deal-of-the-day genre of online... More
