    Pros

    Like Marmite, you love it or you hate it.

    There are some very well run teams, and others not so much. I have experienced both. Badly run teams, as in any other company, will be very unproductive and extremely frustrating.

    That said, in general:

    (+) Dynamic, lots of things happening around you, and some very cool stuff being tested/launched.
    (+) Many opportunities to change roles within the company and take on new challenges. Internal transfers are encouraged.
    (+) Good team spirit, people are willing to help each other and collaborate.
    (+) Lots of autonomy in making decisions, everybody can be an "owner".
    (+) You are always very busy, and there is no room for slackers.

    Cons

    (-) Things can move very slowly due to the many dependencies across teams.
    (-) Very little coaching/mentoring/guidance from managers, and hardly any training & dev on professional growth.
    (-) Not a lot of recognition for a job well done (this is a generalization based on my 10 years in the company - I have had some great managers, but in general they are hands-off in every way)

    Advice to Management

    Actively help your employees develop professionally.
    Set a clear strategy for your team (and stick to it for more than 5 minutes).

    Pros

    Good starting pay, regular raises, and good benefits. If you get a good manager you will be able to learn and grow.

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime often called at the last second, making it difficult to take care of other areas of your life like family. Some members of management treat employees as a disposable piece of equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees

    Pros

    Dog friendly office, great opportunity to learn how to use excel, good compensation, good restaurants near by to take back to your desk.

    Cons

    No training, not much strategic thinking, horrendous office politics and favoritism, insanely long hours and expected to be available at pretty much 24/7. Once you figure it out for yourself, the work becomes mundane. Not much growth, and any growth in the first two years is a horizontal transition. Flat company, and never have I heard a co worker say, I love my job.

    Advice to Management

    Take time to train your employees, better communication, no favoritism

    Pros

    I work at a specialty site which prints and ships books on demand. The process is easy and simple. Associates who work here care about quality and work extremely hard.

    Cons

    The upper management is ambiguous at best. There is no transparency and favoritism runs rampant.

    Advice to Management

    It is not that hard to do what we do! Amazon's catch phrase is work hard, play hard and make history- live up to it!
