    Former Employee - Site Merchandiser in Seattle, WA

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

    Pros

    Dogs in the office; Tom Douglas restaurants on campus; buildings have gorgeous views

    Cons

    0 work/life balance; expectations aren't shared; little to no pride in the company or job; high turnover; review system seems designed to fail

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees work better when they feel inspired, and when they can sleep soundly at night without having nightmares about work (whether that's being fired or just disappointing management). Expectations for each job should be shared freely, not only when the employee is going through performance coaching due to a poor review. It needs to be easier to be promoted, and a few perks (free Prime, for example) wouldn't hurt...
