Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Challenging, face-paced work environment with a strong customer service focus. Employees are encouraged to "Work Hard, Have Fun, Make HIstory". That's just what we're doing!

Cons

Uneven workload distribution. High performing employees seem to get "dumped on" while low performers slide by while pocketing the same salaries. Very discouraging and unfair. My peers have time for chats, social networking and extended breaks while I can't seem to stay above water.

Advice to Management

Implement work logs and pay attention to workload distribution. Don't burn out your best performers!

    Infinite opportunity for the taking, but not your typical tech company benefits.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunity to move around to different businesses Lots of autonomy Opportunity for ownership Really smart people in business and tech Fast paced

    Cons

    Lots of writing and analysis - everything must be proven Company is very stingy (employee contribution for medical is high for the tech industry, cheap desks, etc.)

    Advice to Management

    It is easier to leave Amazon at one level and come back at a higher level than to promote. We need to streamline promoting from within.
