A lot of advancement opportunities if you are in "The Boys Club"

Area Manager (Former Employee)
Plainfield, IN

I worked at Amazon.com full-time for more than 3 years

ProsAbove average compensation, good benefits

ConsVery hard to make a name for yourself if you are not in "The Boys Club". This generally means that you went to some prestegious college with an MBA or are ex-military. If you are not willing to work at least 60 hours a week and have Amazon be your #1 priority you are perceived as a slacker and lazy. There is definite favoritism by upper management. If you do not fit the mold do not expect to be promoted or last long with the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementInvest time in your managers. Give them constructive and positive feedback on how to get to the next level. Don't treat your manager as they are always replaceable. It stresses them out and causes them to look for a job elsewhere.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
