Pros

good pay & benefits empowers employees smart coworkers

Hard work and long hours, not great work/life balance

More levels so there are more smaller promotions -- per Tony Hsieh in the All Hands meeting, continuous small promotions help to make people happy.

    They expect long hours and little work/life balance, but at least they're honest about it from the time you interview!

    Pros

    Amazing growth in a number of "cool" spaces Will continue to expand, not afraid to try new things Hire really smart, talented people Job scope is typically broad All about the customer Bezos is a strong leader and very involved

    Cons

    Um, no work/life balance Long, involved hiring process Hire as few people as possible to get the job done Base salary for new hires (at all levels) is capped, but at least everyone is in the same boat

    Advice to Management

    Keep taking risks and focusing on the customer-- it's proven to be a winning formula Remember that there are only 24 hours in a day and some people have families

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    free crap from vendors hush $/severence when they let you go.

    Cons

    no work/life balance 24/7 blackberry - on call 365. management is completely incompetent HR is not there to help employees - only to keep management from getting sued. do not go to HR for any reason including anything legal, best way to get yourself fired.

    Advice to Management

    i would say get a grip on the turnover, but since people will still want to come work for you, you have no reason to change anything.
