Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

Pros

money, room for creativity/openness to new ideas and trying new things

Cons

many unreasonable expectations, 60 hour+ workweek

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Care more about your people's work/life balance and do something to make it better instead of ignoring the problem or thinking just because your worklife was/is hard you have to make it so for all that come after you.
