Lots of talented people ( some of them are pricks as well)

Cons

- Pager Duty, 15 minutes to respond in the event of an alert
- Managers main goal is to suck blood out of you. Most of them are micro managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Stop hiring managers from consulting companies who have never written a single line of code.

    Pros

    Good money straight out of high school. It is easy to get recognized if you are working hard.

    Cons

    You better be ready to work hard. There is no sitting around or stopping on the warehouse floor for 10 hour shifts other than lunch and breaks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better and more monetary incentives.

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

    Pros

    Working from home. Equipment provided. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Management hard to reach at times. Very impersonal, having to give everything under the sun to everyone who called to complain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more available to your employees and don't push everything off onto your leads.
