Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

I worked at Amazon.com

Pros

The staff is very friendly towards one another, management can be okay, i understand that at the end of the day they have someone to answer to as well.

Cons

Very political company, sometimes felt like a good old boys club. Who you knew definitely paid off in promotions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on building brands that can carry company to new positions at retail. Evaluate employees on merit.

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Flexible hours on most teams. Lots of ownership. Little or no micro-management. Convenient location in Seattle. Fun, interesting work.

    Cons

    Can be political... promotions are not given based on merit. Pay is extremely low. Management treats some people like cogs in a machine instead of valuable resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your people more - we are your most valuable asset. Encourage us to attend more training and show us we are appreciated.
