    Pros

    Best Pay, Great leadership principles and there are several departments that are doing great. I wish they let people learn and grow as they boast about "hire and develop" the best talent

    Cons

    Narrow minded executive team. HR has absolutely no culture and can talk any crap. There is no scope for growth for the externally hired candidates. They don't respect experience. A 5 yr experienced Amazonian would be a manager and 25 yrs experiened new hire will report him irrespective of talent. THERE IS CULTURE

    Advice to Management

    Understand the roles and their responsiblities. If you got no clarity on what you need, please take advice from Jeff and don't make Amazon a worst place to work.
