Pros

Amazon.com is a great brand name for your resume - everyone will think your retail and/or cloud genius.

Cons

They are cheap, cheap, cheap, and expect you to work 24x7. They're so cheap that managers get little to no training, which is reflected in their immature management style (e.g. "you stay late while I go home," "plans, what are those?"). Those that have risen through the ranks at Amazon are part of a "good'ol boy" network (e.g. there is an all you can eat chicken wing circle that is exclusively men because what woman would want to stuff her face in front of co-workers?) and seem to lack the skills to succeed in comparable positions elsewhere - but hey, Amazon isn't the worst place to be stuck ;-)

Advice to Management

Communicate more, and get off your duffs and do something.

    Recommends
    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    No Dress Codes. They will never kick you out unless or until you're not inclines toward that. You'll always remain visible. No bias. Fair Decisions. Best management team. Awesome strategies. Tech oriented. No website restrictions. You can listen music. A lot of fun activities. Home to office pick up and drop. Floor walk done by senior management every day. Earth's most customer-centric company

    Cons

    You'll have to prepare yourself for any kind of assignment. Coffee machines are not as good as Facebook and Google. Frugality is the main principle. Ubuntu will be the working environment.

    Advice to Management

    They should always listen to the lower level employees because they are dealing with customers and they can give better suggestions than any otherone.
