Advice to ManagementAdvice

Being customer centric is good, but if you have unhappy employees they will leave, please consider improving compensation to be on power with Competitors. And listen to your employees not managers who just want to take up more projects and show how much GMS they are generating.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time

    Pros

    After working here, you won't find it hard to work anywhere else. 12 hours a day would look normal to you. Perfect place for workaholics.

    Cons

    Mercenary managers.
    Estimates become commitments.
    Self imposed unreasonable deadlines.
    Death marches towards those deadlines.
    Lack of integrity. Being honest about the scope of work can hurt you under the pretext that you don't show bias for action.
    Whatever you do is not enough. You have to believe there is room for delivering more and work extra hours to deliver more.
    Your work day doesn't end when you leave the office. It spans over your evenings and weekends - until you leave the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    spend at least 2% of the hiring effort in keeping existing people happy.
