Pros

Visionary leadership from Bezos, that is maintaining the 25-35% growth rates in a $65BN company. Opportunities for movement within the company, and a very talented workforce across the board

Cons

The turnover can be pretty high as there are a lot of type A personalities all trying to be the next great thing can be exhilirating but also very frustrating. Some groups have mastered the balance and keep their teams happy and challenged, others have not and have just untenable turnover rates that puts stress on the people who remain.

Advice to Management

Need to focus a little more on the retention of the company

    Pros

    Salary, Colleagues, Critical Thinking, Forward Looking Company

    Cons

    Work Life Balance, Employee Turnover

    Advice to Management

    Amazing place to develop skills and talents that will help you in any career path, even something very dissimilar to your expertise. Work hours and stress can be tough at times, especially in holidays, but has gotten better. Employee turnover is an issue as one feels they are always training a new hire.

    Pros

    Good pay for entry level position, Amazing benefits that begin on hire date. Holiday time and pay included.

    Cons

    Weird shifts times, resulting in short work weeks with long hours.

    Advice to Management

    Look at adding a third shift to cover overnights, while turning all shifts to 5 day @ 8 hours.
