    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Great company mission with fantastic growth for several years to come. There are some highly talented people who work here, and a fanatic commitment to the customer and continuous improvement. The total compensation package with salary, signing bonuses and stock is hard to beat. Survivors can move up quickly.

    Cons

    The signing bonuses are meant to trap you into staying for the first two years if you decide it is not right for you. Managers work long, hard hours making work/life balance very difficult. Senior management practices confrontational and public feedback versus constructive feedback. Not for the weak or timid and you must drink the koolaide to survive. High manager turnover and I saw many talented people leave before I chose too.

    Advice to Management

    Start running the organization like the professional outfit and not like a sweat shop. Treat people with respect and recognize achievements.

    Current Employee - Virtual Customer Service Representative
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Ability to Work from Home Generous Time off policies Performance pay based on customer satisfaction Flexible scheduling for students Opportunities for advancement Experience not required

    Cons

    The company is very frugal.. if they can get away with paying you less they will Lack of information can be frustrating Doesn't matter if its right... as long as it's said with a smile Good performance is noted but the best way to get ahead is make friends, which can be very hard in a virtual environment. Experience is not always rewarded, it's more about how you fit in Amazon culture.

    Advice to Management

    Spend just a tiny bit more on your employees. A little more training and lot less t-shirts goes a long way. Require leadership to know what they are talking about. Make leadership more accountable for the success of their reports.
