Slave drivers

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Amazon.com

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

ConsThey 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 ;-)

I worked at Amazon.com


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… 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. … Advice to Senior Management: Start running the organization like the professional outfit and not like… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
