Good company to work for, however, as any other company it is not perfect and can improve a lot too

Pros

It offers competitive salaries for management positions. It is growing fast. It is very innovative. They love change.

Cons

It is too lean some times i.e. they do not spend too much on things that improves morale. The operations team (associate and management) works very long hours. There are not too many perks as other tech companies related to them.

Advice to Management

Improve morale to make sure people work even harder to improve the business.

    not much chance to move up in the company unless your military experienced.

    Advice to Management

    Don't throw the book at people if they have one bad week and let people move up if they are qualified.

    I worked at Amazon.com full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to learn about how to develop software, and how to support it. Learn what it means to be customer focused.

    Cons

    You have two choices: Burn out with over-work, or play politics to save your skin. Promotions are based on favoritism in many cases. If you complain to HR about abuse from upper management, be sure they will rat on you and collude to destroy you. Leave before it gets to that.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your employees
