Advice to ManagementAdvice

constantly burning out employees takes away the strategic focus and builds them into workhorses instead of innovators

    I have been working at Amazon.com full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The pay: the base salary is good and the sign on bonus was great. Some of the people were really great to work with.

    Cons

    HR is not respected by the general manager. The world works in chaos and each project is constantly changing. You never know what is going to be asked of you each day. Associates are asked their barriers and managers jump to fix the issues but that is not the same on the exempt side. If an exempt employee voices barriers, then they are given a bad review and blamed for the project failing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs structure. The management team needs to learn to respect their employees, hourly and salaried.
