Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The people were great. I met a lot of people that I was happy to work with. Most of the area managers were good people.

Cons

They do not hire real managers. Most of them do not know how to deal with people. It is all data management which for Tier III or lower makes life miserable. We never had the help or people to accomplish what was needed. I personally got very little support from my managers.

Advice to Management

Need better communication. One purpose to a chain of command is that messages get passed down to those that need the information. Too often it was last minute information instead of planning and talking to people who need to be in the know. Very disappointed.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Strong work environment, good compensation, and good support from Managers. Also a strong team.

    Cons

    Not much upward mobility, only way to advance is to switch departments though they are helpful when you do request a transfer.

    I worked at Amazon.com as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Many systems and products, so huge opportunity to learn, do anything, and move around. Company takes customer experience seriously, so you learn to be in an environment that can not fail, and must perform. Flexible hours and work schedule.

    Cons

    Very independent work, and difficult to learn so many systems at once. Seeking help is difficult because only a select few know the systems, and they're extremely busy.

    Advice to Management

    Better mentorship and more help on ramp up.
