    Pros

    by far, the best pro is market leading pay. In every segment of their employee population, from fulfillment center employees to corporate drones, they have strong compensation practices...this tops off with you get to the executive level but everywhere, you will do well financially. In their corporate offices, they also have a casual work environment and you will definitely work with smart people.

    Cons

    Pretty much everything else is negative. You will be asked to do the job of three people (at this point, the fat paycheck starts looking paltry compared to the hours you'll work) and the reward at amazon for doing a job well is just more work. people are promoted so quickly into management that there's no training and plenty of people are promoted who lack any management skill whatsoever. the company is also growing at a crazy pace. This can be exciting - it's fun to work somewhere that's in the news and is dynamic but it also puts extraordinary pressure on employees. Don't read these reviews and think that it will be different for you because you're smarter or work harder or faster. Amazon hires smart people who work at a frantic pace and the only reward for hard work is more hard work. The only people who will thrive in this type of environment are people able to draw incredibly firm boundaries between the personal and professional lives...or people who don't have a personal life!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It starts at the top. all the advice in the world is just noise compared to the cultural overtones established by bezos. This company is not going to change.
