    I have a manager who is self-focused. She only manages up and this has created poor morale.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fun, diverse people. Casual atmosphere (sometimes almost too casual) Subsidized parking rates, good health care plan.

    Cons

    Always shifting management. Each new manager is allowed to make the team they are coming in to head up whatever they want it to be. Hence, those on the team have to continually adjust to changing expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Do less and focus more on core responsibilities. Many managers I encounter are so busy doing things for a promotion, that they dismiss any suggestions or feedback coming from people working under them. You are missing opportunities to leverage the investment you have in your people. They are being stifled by management.
