Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Amazon.com full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good benefits. Above average pay.

Cons

Poor communication between departments. One-on-one training is poor. Humanity is lost due to walk-out process.

Advice to Management

Each department manager should own their own department in human relations.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Low tolerance for bs Document-based meetings make sure people have thought things through Very smart leadership

    Cons

    Managers are too busy to coach, or manage Long, long hours Un-even promotion bar across departments, low promotion rate to Sr. Manager or higher - bar is a lot lower for external hires into higher level position than in-house promotion

    Advice to Management

    If you find someone good enough to rate at the highest level for three consecutive reviews, promote them or coach them, or they will leave and work for your competitor.
