Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

Easy quick hiring process. And for that it does pay better then most quick hire jobs. Easy to learn operations and decent work out.

Cons

Hard labor and working with the dumbest people ever. After making a suggestion I was told just to do what I'm told because this is like "slave labor".

Advice to Management

Improve training process for new employees so that they can learn multiple jobs. Thus making days seem more interesting because one wouldn't be doing the same thing over and over. Maybe this would help retain good workers.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very Dynamic, good place to start career, learn lot of things in less period of time, Business is growing and expanding so too many things to learn

    Cons

    One gets lost on the core and delivering due to so much happening around. Too much volatility due to continuous change in the business. Promotions are hard. Career and self development is neglected.

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

    Pros

    Good salary, Fair opportunity for advancement, smart people

    Cons

    Unfair manager rating systems. Popularity contests, too much of a "ME, ME, ME" culture where people try to exceed at the expense of their peers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent and look at merits rather than popularity
