Pros

Good benefits. Very sharp people, cutting edge (with some blood flowing). Excellent hiring bonus. There are excellent "pockets" of staff -- but they tend to be the exception and not the rule.

Cons

Still suffers from high turnover with staff. Lack of significant experience in management result in a lot of pro-forma decisions and little empathy. There is a general feeling that employees are temporary (and will voluntarily or involuntarily move on) once they slip out of the top 40% of performers. Most recruits are straight from University and as a result, tend to be accepting of abuse that is common in grad schools.

Advice to Management

Rethink your IT people growth -- Amazon profit margin is dropping towards negative fast. Shareholders may push for cuts -- and IT personnel costs is a big target. If you do any IT layoffs, this may result in the best moving on quickly elsewhere....

    Pros

    The pay at Amazon is very fair

    Cons

    They treat their employees as capital recources, not people.

    Advice to Management

    Actually show some real concern for your employees. You will end up with a happier and more prodcutive labor force.

    Pros

    Pays is decent, not the best but decent

    Cons

    Managers are a bunch egotistic power hungry bullies who pre on lower staff. They are a bunch of malfunctioning idots who needs to realize that the regular worker is just as much of the companie's success as they are.

    Advice to Management

    Hire regular people, not morons to lead the staff!
