    Pros

    Working at a well-known company always seeking to be number one. Good salaries and stock benefits. Awesome talent everywhere

    Cons

    Customer obsession never applies to employees. The concept of frugality really means being cheap, doing everything possible to shave a buck or two with employee benefits and merchant support. Most of all, though, is the obsession towards providing data to explain your performance; too much time is wasted in internal proceses and reporting...don't we have tools for that?

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time listening to your employees and less time scrutinizing their work. Everyone works their nuts off and a lot of talent is burned or lost by basing all HR decisions on cold numbers
